IOS 6 offers very little over existing phones/features

Truth be told,

IOS 6 offers little that is actually New to modern mobile phones.

Siri is the biggest thing going for Apple devices right now.

The features offered by "Eyes Free" and "Do Not Disturb" are already available (Smart Actions on Motorola Droids).

3D Maps... Google Maps has had that for quite a while now. And it also provides location based info on traffic & accidents.

Face Time will FINALLY be able to use cellular data networks and not just WiFi... about time.

While I'm sure the intergration of these features will be great, the actual functionality for many of them has existed on current phones for a while. And I'm not sure how someone already came to the conclusion that Apples mapping will be better than Go...

The difference is that it'll be well implemented and platform wide, which means the 5-billion-dollar app ecosystem can respond to it (which doesn't happen with Android.)

...and that is Apple's story. They take existing concepts, integrate them into an almost flawless user experience that the masses will enjoy. I applaud Apple for that as thanks to their leadership competition has given us great devices today.

I am a developer and prefer the flexibility offered by platforms like Android. However, I need to give credit where credit is due.
