iOS 6 Beta: First Look

iOS 6 appears to be a great update, with many new and useful features for iPhones and iPads--but the changes aren't so radical that you'll have to learn the OS all over again. Apple has made important changes to Music, iTunes, Maps, and Siri. It has added Facebook and Twitter integration, and a useful location-based feature called geofencing.

Settings: Bluetooth

The first thing I noticed was that the settings for Bluetooth were moved out of General, and are now located in the Settings home screen, right under Wi-Fi. This makes it a lot easier to turn Bluetooth on and off, as well as pair with troublesome BT devices. Although many would like to see at least the top four top options--Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Carrier--moved to the Notification Tray, it's just as easy now to get to BT options as with other operating systems.
