iOS6 Gives More Reasons to Keep your iPhone Secured
Along with the launch of the all new MacBook Retina, Apple also revealed that iOS6 will be taking the iPhone (as well as iPad and iPod touch) to entirely new directions this fall. Here are some of the new features that will make your iPhone one of your most valuable possessions:
Fluid Maps. Enjoy a clearer and smoother display that can be easily manipulated by panning, tilting and zooming. Arrive at your desired destination effortlessly with its turn-by-turn navigation, spoken directions and experience photo-realistic interactive 3D views of the amazing Flyover. Get ahead with real-time traffic information, alternative route suggestions and local search information for over 100 million businesses.
Smarter Siri. Also to be made available for the new iPad and iPhone 4S will be a multilingual Siri that includes language support for English, French, German and Japanese, and added support for Spanish, Italian, Korean, Mandarin and Cantonese. Siri will also keep you posted on latest sports scores, make restaurant reservations, update your Facebook status, post Tweets or launch an app. The smarter Siri will also enable you to interact with your iPhone using solely voice command, taking the hands-free functionality to a higher level.
Facebook Friendly. Probably the best integration ever for a mobile device is the built-in Facebook that will allow you to sign in once and post from Notification Center, Siri and FB-enabled apps. Never miss a friend’s new contact detail, a scheduled event or birthday as information is kept updated across all your iOS devices whenever your FB friends make the changes. You can also “Like” and see your friends’ recommendations directly from the App Store and iTunes. No more “I wish I knew that before I clicked Install App” disappointing moments.
Personalized Photo Sharing. Thanks to the success of the iCloud, sharing photos with family and friends are made personalized yet easier using Shared Photo Streams. All you have to do is choose the photos for sharing, select which friends you would like to view the album and the shared photos are instantly accessible on their iOS devices. You don’t ever have to worry whether you look hideous in a photo because you know that you’re sharing it with people whom you’re really comfortable with. It’s like putting “privacy” in a shared environment. Just knock yourself out leaving comments and liking photos in shared albums.
Passbook Worthy. If you’re always on the go, the new Passbook app will be your best aide as it organizes all your passes in one place. Boarding passes, baseball tickets, coupons, concert tickets, hotel check-ins. It displays your passes on your Lock Screen automatically based on a specific time or location. So if you happen to enter your favorite coffee shop, you can scan the loyalty card from your phone to buy coffee or check points balance. Passbook also comes in handy at the airport by alerting you about flight delays or last minute gate changes.
And More… There are more features in the new iOS6 such as guided access for learning, Safari enhancements, offline reading lists, support for FaceTime and wait for it, a VIP Mailbox! What does this do? Once set up, you will be able to quickly view messages from important people whom you label as VIPs. This is good news especially for those who are focused on whatever their doing, as it filters out not so urgent messages like those subscriptions that we don’t really bother opening at all (we hope our newsletter gets labeled VIP, by the way). You can also decline incoming calls with a quick message, set callback reminders and activate a “Do Not Disturb” option.
Next Gen iPhone? These iOS6 advancements are just a sneak preview of the next generation iPhone. Word is coming out that the new iPhone prototypes are built with NFC chips (Near Field Communications) technology that will enable contactless transactions where one can simply use the iPhone to pay for gas, groceries, bills, and practically anything as long as the merchant has an NFC reader that will accept express payments. Given the more than 200 million plus credit cards that Apple has in its iTunes database and a little kick of integration, this feature seems very likely to happen in the not so distant future.
iPhone Security. Such exciting innovations only give more reasons for you to protect and secure your iPhone. More than just a smart phone, the iPhone not only makes our work and personal routines easier, it also allows for greater mobility as we leave our credit-card laden wallets behind.
These all amount to a greater need to keep your device safe. At Colcasac, our protective sleeves are smartly designed and made with biodegradable materials which are better for both you and the Earth. Each iPhone sleeve that we create has a heavy-duty exterior canvas that is incredibly soft yet strong. Lined with recycled polyester, our iPhone sleeves protects your device with a snug fit minus the bulk and our unique and minimalist design also acts as a theft deterrent, giving you peace of mind and comfort for your iPhone.
