Apple treats the releases of their new products like some uber top secret technological revelation. It's stupid. They refuse to give any information about upcoming releases. They won't say what is being released, or exactly when. The only info from Apple is that they're having one of their normal "Events", and you have to watch it live that day to find out more.
But it's not hard to connect the dots. The new iPhone is expected Sept. 12th. It will come with iOS6, which is pretty ****ing awesome.
Apple's new Maps feature is the shit. 3D maps that look incredible. They dropped Google maps, and created their own. And I have to say it's really impressive. It also features free turn by turn navigation which works really well.
Here's a little demo of an early beta version:
There's other neat features too, like custom Do Not Disturb settings. Much more options in the Mail app, like individual signatures and such. And you can now Airplay anything from an iOS6 or Mountain Lion device. Which is pretty sweet combined with AppleTV.
Overall, I've really liked iOS6 so far.
