Apple Releases iOS 6

Yesterday, Apple officially released iOS 6.  Some of the major changes you will see are Maps, which includes spoken directions and real time traffic updates, improved Siri, Facebook integration and FaceTime over cellular.  Some features that we in the TSC are excited about are the Panorama mode for the camera, the ability to save pages from Safari in your reading list, and the new calling features.   Now, rather than simply declining an incoming phone call, you are able to set callback reminders or send the caller a text letting them know you will call them back later.

Some things you will no longer see are the YouTube App and Google Maps. If you’ll miss the built in YouTube app, you can still download a YouTube app from the App Store.

We encourage all iPhone users on campus to keep their phones up to date. If you have a university owned iPhone and need assistance, please contact the TSC at techhelp@sju.edu or x2920.  Let us know how you like iOS 6!
