iOS 6 revisited: Features and rumors

By Updated on

A few months on and Apple has still yet to solve a number of issues with iOS 5 – battery life is still shocking – so it’s only obvious that we would now look ahead to the next version. We thought we would name this post iOS 6 revisited, as we will be looking at what some of our readers have been asking for, as well as some of the latest rumors.

One such feature, which would be welcomed, is a file manager. As we know when you open a file, they open in separate programs and then save a copy. It would be much simpler if there was a central place where all attachments were stored, that way you could organize things much easier.

iPad owners have been getting in on the debate as well, as it seems they would like the weather and clock app that iPhone users have. One wanted feature that we found of interest was a voicemail app; this would make it much easier than trying to change your settings with the carrier – talk about long-winded.

There is a feature that gets asked for all the time, yet Apple still ignores their customers. Owners of the iPhone do not like how they are not able to create a custom ringtone, but we think this is one feature where Apple will never give in. If they do not want to give them that, then why not a compromise, give them the facility to auto-block numbers by list. There are many old phones that could do this, so why can’t one of the best smartphones in the world do this simple task?

TechRadar readers have also been having their say about what they would like to see from iOS 6. Here we will list just a few of them for you. The first is for Siri to work on other iOS devices apart from the iPhone 4S. FaceTime over 3G; although this could have a serious affect on your monthly bill. New Maps, and this is one feature that we all agree on, as the current version is very basic. Finally quicker access to Airplane mode, but we have recently learned that this could be accessed via Siri in the upcoming iOS 5 update.

Going back to an update for maps on the current iOS, Christian News has learned that Apple could be considering 3D iOS Maps App, which you can see for yourself in the video below.

    Here is an idea, stop wishing for stuff in the OS that is already available as a free or low cost APP in the App store.  The voice mail, clock, weather and ringtone maker are all ready to be downloaded.  If you are going to wish for something, how about making it for something new and original.
