Apple has been working with its sea of developers to update the App Store interface in iOS 6, a major up and coming version of the company’s mobile operating system.
The latest addition discovered
by iOS 6 GM (Golden Master) testers is a “Download Free” button that provides one-tap installation of free applications developed by Apple themselves. These include iBooks, iTunes U, Podcasts, Find My Friends, and Find My iPhone.
is the Apple-designed e-reading application for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. It offers a clean interface featuring a wooden library, as well as immediate access to the iBookstore where customers can instantly download new books, including educational material.
is Apple’s education-centric app which downloads textbooks and other learning material for higher-education students. It puts tons of free courses on your iDevice, and acts as a one-stop shop for purchasing extensive materials for in-depth studying of a particular subject.
really doesn’t need a description – it’s basically just a handy interface for all your favorite podcasts. Find My Friends
pinpoints your buddies on a map, and Find My iPhone
does exactly what its name implies, in case you lost it or had it stolen from you.
To be noted that these five titles are not the only free applications developed by Apple. However, the company may well roll out the entire set of free apps for the one-tap download screen as iOS 6 makes its public debut tomorrow.
That’s right. One day to go
and iOS 6 will be made available as a free software update to all iDevice owners worldwide. It supports iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, the new iPad, iPad 2 and iPod touch fourth-generation, Apple has confirmed. Some features will not be available on all devices. iPhone 3GS users, for example, will be getting next to none.
