Top 10 iOS 6 features
| by Naina Khedekar
The showstopper at the mega WWDC 2012 event was undoubtedly the new, next-gen MacBook Pro, but that hasn't shifted the limelight from the highly anticipated iOS 6. Owing to the leaks, iOS 6 being introduced at the WWDC 2012 wasn't a surprise, but Apple has done a commendable job with the cool features it has. We’ve picked the top 10 iOS 6 features that should matter to you the most.
FaceTime over 3G
Earlier Apple’s FaceTime feature was accessible only via Wi-Fi. The newest update infused in the iOS 6 allows Apple fiends to access FaceTime over cellular network. This means, you can use FaceTime even while traveling and don’t have to run about to check for Wi-Fi connection. One of the most exciting features, this was missed by many before.

Siri on a learning spree
Siri created waves after it was announced last year, and soon enough became the most talked about and envied feature, compelling Google to start working on a voice assistant functionality. Now Siri has been educated further to answer questions about movies, get sports scores, make dinner reservations, tweet and it even supports newer languages. This isn’t all. It has been enabled with the ‘Eyes Free’ functionality, which lets you talk to Siri without looking into your handset’s screen while driving. The benefits of this feature are expected to be soon seen in cars by top auto makers.
Call Rejection and Reminder
So, next time you want to reject a call, you can quickly send an SMS saying you are busy with a chore, instead of just swiping across ‘do not answer.’ Moreover, users can even customize these messages - for instance - “Caught up with work..Will call you soon.” This isn’t all; you can also set a reminder, so that you don’t forget to make that call.
Do Not Disturb
Yes, you can tell your device not to disturb you. Firstly, it isn’t the airplane mode and you will receive your calls and messages, but the device will not indicate it through a ringtone or vibration mode. So, the device will ignore all calls and messages, but you can view them later as you pull the device out of the Do Not Disturb mode. However, if the user gets a call from the same number about three times in 5 minutes, the feature will reckon it important and indicate the user about it. Smart, we must say.
