Apple provides sneak peek at iOS apps for summer 2012

http://www.guardian.co.uk

Sky Gamblers party mode, Infinity Blade Dungeons, Star Academy, Nike+ Training and more on the way to iPhone and iPad.
Apple is expected to unveil the iOS 6 software at its WWDC conference in June, and while proprietary maps, Siri APIs for developers and a revamped App Store have been rumoured, the exact details won't be known until the event.

However, Apple is showing off some of the apps that it expects to be big summer hits on its iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. The company's senior director of iPhone product marketing, Stan Ng, sat down with The Guardian this morning for an "iOS momentum" briefing.

The choice of apps offers some clues about Apple's priorities for its platform, and how it's positioning iOS against competition from Android in particular.

The figures are familiar from Apple's most recent quarterly financials call: more than 365m iOS devices shipped so far, more than 600,000 apps in its App Store, 25bn downloads so far and a current run-rate of 1bn a month.

Apple’s Coming Map App Will “Blow Your Head Off”

http://allthingsd.com

Between 2009 and 2011, Apple acquired three mapping companies in quick succession: Placebase, in 2009; 3-D mapping outfit Poly9 in 2010; and in 2011, C3 Technologies, a second 3-D mapping company. Three mapping-company acquisitions in as many years. But for good reason: Apple has been hard at work developing its own in-house mapping solution for iOS, and now it’s finally ready to debut it.
Sources tell 9to5Mac that Apple will abandon Google’s mapping back-end in the next major iteration of iOS, replacing it with a brand-new mapping application powered by Apple technology. We’ve independently confirmed that this is indeed the case. Sources describe the new Maps app as a forthcoming tentpole feature of iOS that will, in the words of one, “blow your head off.”

Apple WWDC: iOS 6 says farewell to Google Maps

http://blogs.computerworld.com

Apple has been working for years to pull together the pieces to launch its own mapping services for the iPhone. The company has made a range of acquisitions with this in mind, starting with Placebase, C3 and Poly9.

Most recently traces of the system were discovered within the iPhoto app for iOS. That's the thin end of the wedge, maps used were low on data and imagery used was pretty basic. The data for these maps (available inside the Places function, is provided by OpenStreetMaps).

If you were looking at the maps inside iPhoto you'll likely have felt they offer nothing more appealing than Google Maps -- pictorially lacking, to say the least. This changes soon as the new Apple maps introduce what 9to5Mac calls an "incredible 3D mode".

That report has since been confirmed by AllThingsD, which says their sources describe the new Maps app as a leading feature of iOS 6, one designed to, "blow your head off."

http://www.appleinsider.com

Apple is expected to upgrade its iCloud service with new photo sharing functionality at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference in June, according to a new report.

The new features will be announced when WWDC kicks off on June 11, according to The Wall Street Journal. The new functionality will allow users to share photos with others and also comment on them.

That's a major improvement from the current Photo Stream functionality in iCloud, which simply syncs pictures across devices rather than giving users the ability upload and share them publicly or with friends.

Apple Planning iCloud Upgrade for WWDC

http://www.pcmag.com

Apple's iCloud service is about to get an upgrade, according to a new report.
Citing unnamed people familiar with the matter, The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that Apple is planning to upgrade its iCloud storage and data-syncing service with new photo-sharing features. The new features are expected to be announced at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), which takes place from June 11-15 in San Francisco.
The new version will let users share sets of photos with other iCloud users and add comments. That would be a big improvement over iCloud's existing photo storage capabilities. The current iCloud Photo Stream feature is designed to automatically synch photos across devices, but does not allow users to share images with others or comment on them.
