Apple Updates: iPhone 5 & iOS 6

See that?..

So, everybody been buzzin' about September 12th! The day that Apple would be unveiling the latest in it's iPhone lineup: the iPhone 5!! And with it, the iOS 6

...Or so we all thought. Apple did some unveiling alright... Of (very near-future) dates.

From CNET:

Apple will release the next version of its iOS mobile operating system, iOS 6, on Sept. 19.
The Cupertino company announced the release date along with theiPhone 5 today at an event in San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
As with previous years, the iPhone 5 will come with iOS 6, while owners of older iPhones can download the new software in an over-the-air update or through iTunes. The iPhone 5 will be on sale on Sept. 21, but other device owners can download the new system earlier.
A key addition is a new Apple-created mapping app -- which Apple is debuting after axing Google Maps. The update will also have an improved Siri, Apple's digital assistant, that can open apps via voice command. Another notable change is the ability to conduct Facetime video chats over a 3G cellular network, a feature that's prompted discussion about its impact to data plans.
The new system is said to have 200 new features including tighter Facebook integration, more phone-answering options and a Passbook app for storing boarding passes, movie tickets, and other location-based items.


I often wonder why I seriously boast #teamiPhone; knowing the whole while that Android's features and restriction-free steez is the best 'round.... Anywayz, I really need this iOS 6 update in my life! Siri gets an update, Maps gets a voice, and I just may fuck with FB a bit more, with full-integration.  I'm excited! And I will be either waking up a little early on the 19th or going to sleep super late on the 18th/midnight. (Whichevz. I need this update!)
