Apple's new iOS 6 announcement came with a host of new features. One of the most intriguing ones is their new Maps functionality. As rumored previously, the new Maps functions in iOS 6 will include 3D maps and turn-by-turn navigation. However, that's not all! There are a few more juicy tidbits included as well, including full Siri integration. That's right. You will be able to ask Siri for directions and she will direct you where to go. The feature is voice-enabled through Siri, and includes location-based information for drivers with a real-time traffic service. This service will provide incident reports using anonymous location data from iOS users to keep information up to date. Impressive!
Probably the most stunning feature of this Maps service will be Flyover. This feature displays highly-detailed 3D models of famous cities around the world, and they will be accessed directly in the application. Way to take things to the next level literally Apple!
