    iOS6



    * 200 new features

    * Siri upgraded with support for Maps, Sports, Restaurants (open table), Movies (Rotten Tomatoes). Siri can also now launch apps.

    * Eyes Free allows you to keep your hands on the steering wheel while you are using your iPhone. Car manufacturers will be introducing this steering wheel button in future vehicles.

    * Siri comes to the new iPad (not the older models)

    * Facebook integration along with current Twitter. Facebook includes contact integration.

    * iPhone app for controlling incoming calls when you are busy. Allows you to instantly send a message to call back at a given time, and sends you a reminder to call that person back. Another feature, "Do Not Disturb" will prevent your phone from awakening you in the middle of the night. Parameters also added to gain control of which callers get through and which do not.

    * FaceTime over cellular...finally!

    * Phone number and Apple ID are unified so when someone calls you on your phone number or Facetime you can answer it on your iPad or Mac.

    * Apple has built an entirely new mapping system from the ground up. Incorporates 100 million business listings as well as Yelp integration. Traffic data is also incorporated into maps. Turn-by-turn navigation also included. All this works from the lockscreen if you wish. You can even ask Siri where to get gas and she will tell you. Mapping even includes fly-over of cities. It appears there MAY be integration with street lights that simulate on the maps as they turn color.

    * New signatures for personal vs. work email accounts

    Here we go....

    I will try and update the announcements
    as quickly they arrive.

    I realize many of you are streaming this live from other
    websites so I am certain we'll be reporting things at the same time.

    Sorry, Sam, didn't think about the link. I'm using a TWiT TV app on my iPhone which is then AirPlaying it to my Apple TV. It looks great, and so far, not a hiccup. So glad I finally upgraded my internet service last year!

    Nice updates to Airs, but no retina displays. Not on Pros either. Wow, lots of rumors were just plain wrong. Leo's crew speculating the cost of "retina" displays may not be low enough yet to put into shipping products.

    Holy crap, it's 5K pixel display. Double the resolution of the current MBP. All apps being updated to work with new display.
