6. Photo streams on iCloud

In the past, iCloud allowed you to upload photos constantly to your personal stream. Users can now share groups of photos to their friends over iCloud. Everyone will also be able to comment on them.

It’s like creating private Instagram feeds from the Photos app.

7. Mail

Fed up with all junk mails. iOS 6 brings a new VIP feature. Youcan mark people as VIPs, and their emails will automatically go into a special folder. So now you can easily read only those people whom you want to hear most.

8. Passbook

Another good one. It collects all of your loyalty cards, ticket information and other info into one neat place for easy access. It will allow you to have all your tickets and coupons—airplanes, train, movies, concerts, sport events, gift cards, loyalty cards, whatever—in a single wallet.

The fantastic part is it’s location-enabled so it knows what to show based on where you are.

9. Guided access on iOS 6

Apple is adding a new feature called Guide Access to iOS accessibility services. Guided Access helps students with disabilities such as autism remain on task and focused on content.

It allows a parent, teacher, or administrator to limit an iOS device to one app by disabling the Home button, as well as restrict touch input on certain areas of the screen.

10. New maps

Now say good bye to Google Maps. The new Apple Maps integrates with Yelp fully developed in house seems pretty insane. Apple is bringing turn-by-turn navigation to the iPhone. It’s vector-based and voiced by Siri.

You’ll also get details about incidents that are causing traffic jams, so you can tell if there’s a major accident ahead or just a temporary slowdown.

These are just some of the apps that come to mind that might get “sherlocked” by Apple’s new features on iOS 6.
