new iOS -> new Xcode!

At the same time as the update, the Californians are also making the new development environment, XCode Version 4.6, available for iOS programmers.

new features for the new world!

An update to Apple's current operating system is worthwhile especially for American users: The new features of iOS-6 include Siri, with support for additional languages, easy access to sports results, restaurant recommendations and cinema programs; the map app with cartography in Apple design, turn-by-turn navigation and flyover view; Facebook integration for contacts and calendar with the ability to post directly from Notification Center, Siri and Facebook-enabled apps; shared photo streams via iCloud; and Passbook.

In addition, iTunes Match subscribers can now download individual songs from iCloud to their iOS device again. The eagerly awaited new features and improvements of Apple Maps, on the other hand, are not found.
