We’ve had a few days with the new Apple iOS 6 update, and there are a few features that stand out already as my favorites. I’ve narrowed it down to five, but I’ll be glad to talk about some of the others in the comments.
1. Do Not Disturb iPhone feature
Do Not Disturb: 1. Go to settings, 2. Tap “Notifications,” then 3. Tap “Do Not Disturb” to adjust your settings. Easy! And emergency calls still come through if you elect “on” for Repeated Calls, meaning your phone will let the call through if the caller tries more than once.
2. Amazing pictures in any light

3. Tap to tweet/facebook
From the Notifications Center (swipe down from the top of ANY screen on your iPhone) you will now see “Tap to Tweet” and “Tap to Post.” I love that we no longer have to open the app to share what we ate for lunch.
4. Even Easier Photo sharing
From any picture click the “share” button and you instantly have all of these options. Simple. Genius.
