-Scott introducing iOS 6 now

Tentpole 1: Siri — Signifiant enhancements in iOS 6. Sports scores. Integrates via Yahoo Sports. Asking about individual players across different sports leagues.

Siri also gets improved restaurant integration. OpenTable integration (they’ve partnered). Reservations, average menu prices. Movie-related questions. “What movies are playing at” a local theater. Watch trailers within Siri. Siri can now launch apps. “Play Temple Run.” and it immediately opens. Tweeting and a new feature called “Eyes Free.” Apple is working with car manufacturers to build in Siri buttons into their steering wheels. BMW, Honda, Mercedes, Toyota, more have committed to add these buttons within the next 12 months. Apple is also adding English/French (Canada, eh), Spanish (Spain, Mexico, U.S.), Italian, Switzerland, Korean, Mandrain, Cantonese. Local search is now international. iPad support as well! Just like our mockup!

Facebook integration announced. System wide, tweet about Apps from the App Store. Redesigned iTunes and App Stores! Blue status bar, not silver :D

-New phone features: Slide up incoming call slider to choose to be reminded to call person back or to text them a reply. WHen you reply with a message, there is a list of pre-made replies. You can even add customs. Remind me later. Do Not Disturb switch is in settings! Bluetooth toggle is also now more visible in settings. Fine gran controls in Do Not Disturb. Choose which phone calls that can come in while you are sleeping. This is super cool.

FaceTime Over Cellular in iOS 6. Phone number and Apple ID merging… people can FaceTime your phone number and it will come to your iPad. Same story with iMessage. Works across Macs and iOS devices.

Safari: iCloud Tabs and Offline Reading list is in. Photo uploading. Smart Banners: if you go to a website who also has an app, the developer could choose to throw a banner on Safari to be able to install the app from the App Store. Full screen Safari in landscape.

Photo Stream: shared photo streams. Easy way to share photos with your friends.

Mail VIPs in Mail. Attach photos and videos. Open password-protected PDFs, attach Pull to refresh in mail. Scott smiles.

Now discussing PassBook: this is the “Organize” app we discussed previously. This looks like a virtual wallet. Ticket passes: travel, movies, food, etc.

New guided access features. Single app mode, so kids/students can’t leave apps. Great for test taking on iPads, museum guided tours. Guided access allows people to block off certain parts of apps.

NEW MAPS.. 3D mode, this works world wide. Traffic service. Traffic view that shows where slow traffic and incidents are. Crowd sourced. Amazing turn by turn directions. Live re-routing depending on traffic. Works from the lock screen as well… like if you are plugged into your car. Full Siri Integration.

Scott is demoing 3D (iPad + iPhone). They did fly overs to get the imagery. Vector based Maps. Very smooth, very beautiful. Yelp integration.

Tap on “overview” and you see the whole route, which you can zoom and pan over.

It’s nothing different than Google Maps, but cleaner and, it seems, smoother. How smooth it is on an iPhone remains to be seen. Again, that was all on an iPad. But, knowing Apple, it’ll be slick

We will post iOS 6 beta at iPlayPlus once it’s released.

That’s all!!!
