It seems like only yesterday Apple was up on the stage announcing iOS 5 and showing us all of the new features that came along with it. In the Apple iWorld, time flies and iOS 6 is already on the horizon according to some new banners being hung at Moscone West reading, “iOS 6 – The world’s most advanced mobile operating system.” Moscone West is, of course, where Apple’s event will be held from June 11 to June 15.
As pointed out by 9to5Mac, the logo for iOS 5 is different than iOS 4 and iOS 5’s style. Could this mean new wallpapers are to come stock with the mobile operating system just like the new iPad?
iOS 6 is also said to take advantage of a new mapping technology instead of the standard Google Maps that we are all used to from iOS 5. iOS 6 also could support a ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature to help keep notifications from bugging you when you don’t want them. In addition, it has been reported to include Facebook integration stock in the operating system without the need to install third party jailbreak tweaks or App Store applications to gain this functionality – similarly to how iOS 5 introduced Twitter integration.
The iOS 6 banner is the first legitimate sighting at the WWDC location. There is still no confirmation that we will see a new Mac refresh or any new iOS devices for that matter. We will keep you updated as information surfaces.
