As we get close to the WorldWide Developer Conference 2012, more details seem to be leaking out about iOS 6 and iCloud.
Apple is widely expected to give us a preview of their next generation mobile operation system at the Keynote event.
Wall Street Journal briefly reports that Apple planning to add photo-sharing feature and video syncing capabilities to its iCloud service, which will be available in iOS 6.
The new features, expected to be announced at Apple’s world-wide developer conference beginning June 11, will allow iCloud users to share sets of photos with other iCloud users and to comment on them, these people said. Currently, users can only store one set of photos in iCloud through a feature called Photo Stream, which is designed to sync those photos to other Apple devices, not share them.
Apple is also working on a new feature that will allow iCloud users to sync their personal videos via iCloud, these people said, as well as allow users to access “Notes” and “Reminders”—two of its apps for jotting down quick thoughts—through iCloud.com. Currently, those items have to be accessed via apps for those features.
iCloud’s beta site had already revealed Apple’s plan to add Notes and Reminder web app to iCloud.com with iOS 6 last week.
It will be interesting to see how Apple plans to implement the photo-sharing feature, and if it will create a social network around photo-sharing. We also wonder if that the real reason why Apple’s Senior Vice President Phil Schiller quit Instagram.
What do you think about the photo-sharing and video syncing feature? What are you hoping for from iOS 6? Let us know in the comments.
