Apple Reveals iOS6, New Maps App & Passbook App

Apple revealed a beta version of the new iOS 6 at the Worldwide Developer’s Conference today.

The new iOS, which will be available to all iOS mobile users in the fall, has 200 new features including a new Apple Maps app with interactive cartography, new Siri features, Facebook integration for Contacts and Calendar, and Facebook-enabled apps.

At the event, Apple also introduced the new Passbook app, an app that lets you organize all of your tickets in one place, from boarding passes to baseball tickets. Check it out: “Passbook lets you scan your iPhone or iPod touch to use a coupon, get into a concert or check into your hotel. Passbook automatically displays your passes on your Lock Screen based on a specific time or location, so when you walk into your favorite coffee shop your loyalty card appears and you can scan it to buy a coffee or check your balance. Passbook can even alert you to last minute gate changes or flight delays at the airport.”
