Thoughts on iOS 6

I downloaded iOS6, Apple’s latest software update for the iPhone and iPad.  I have an iPhone 4 and iPad 2.

Nothing went wrong other than the wi-fi bug that was fixed right away.  My phone runs a little smoother, and the graphics are a little cleaner.

This upgrade didn’t really make a whole lot of major changes that I could see like iOS5 did.  There is a new accessibility feature called Guided Access that helps people with cognitive disorders like Autism focus better on their tasks.

Then there’s made for iPhone hearing aids.  I still haven’t seen much more information on this.  My hearing aid does not work with my phone well at all, so I’ve basically given up on using it for talking on the phone.  The CI works better.  I would love to see some advancements in this area.  Cell phones have always had issues with hearing aids, causing interference or weird sounds.

So, to sum it up, it was nice to have an upgrade, and I’m grateful that is works, but it isn’t spectacular.  I will have to go over to Verizon once the iPhone 5 is out and give it a test drive.
