Since the launch of Apple IOS 6, many mobile device users have debated within and among themselves if this Apple development is worth spending for. Different mobile users have different needs and preferences when it comes to mobile gadgets. Let us take a closer look at what the IOS 6 has to offer.

Upgraded Siri
On the iPad 3, the iPhone 5, and the iPod touch fifth generation, the Siri voice-controlled personal assistant has the ability to launch apps, post to Facebook and Twitter, and provide information on local places and events including movie listings and sports info. For now, it remains to serve US localities only.

The Passbook Virtual Wallet

The Passbook is Apple's version of the virtual wallet. This app stores your coupon codes, discount cards, booked tickets, and other other files created using the Passbook file-type all in one place for easy viewing and retrieval. Once done, these files can be virtually shredded away as you watch.

Apple Maps
The Apple Maps is IOS's replacement for Google Maps. This Tom-Tom assisted map app features 3D buildings and a Google-Earth-ish Flyover mode. It also offers live traffic information and a listing of 100 million businesses. The turn-by-turn street navigation it offers is Siri controlled. However, Google Maps users may not be convinced enough to shift just yet.
