iOS 6 has been fully integrated with Facebook, allowing the user to share pictures and post status updates with much more ease than ever before . The app will function just like posting “tweets” on twitter

With the iOS 6 update, Google Maps has been replaced with Apple’s very own Maps app. It has a  feature called “flyover”, similar to Google Earth which enables the user  to explore cities in 3D view without realistic satellite imagery.
