As the principle goes, among three favorable options only two are possible at the same time. Rethink core functionalities, Offer major new user features, Keep developers happy: Pick two.
I like the refinements of iOS 6. I don’t care about some new features. I don’t like the changes to the App Store search so far, and, more importantly, I don’t think the new Maps – in its current state – is good for “regular users”.
There’s a tension between the tech press – we know that Maps will get better with more data and time – and the average user, who doesn’t (and shouldn’t) know about the bad blood between Apple and Google.
I try to address these concerns and questions in my iOS 6 coverage today.
