iOS 6 Launching Today – Fact Proved by Spy Shots

ios-6-banner-steve-strezaThanks to some eager-beavers loitering outside the WWDC 2012 venue, we have pictorial confirmation that iOS 6 is official.

Snap-happy Apple fans peeking into San Francisco’s Moscone Center have managed to grab photographic evidence of iOS 6 banners. Thus confirming that we’ll be seeing the next generation of iPhone and iPad software unveiled tonight.

Developer Steve Streza of article aggregation app Pocket (formerly Read It Later) kindly sent snaps of the banner to

Other banners spied in the Moscone Centre are emblazened with Mac Messages, Mac Notification Center, and for a Mac Game Center, suggesting we could see updates to these core apps.

WWDC kicks off at 6pm this evening UK time, that’s 11am in San Francisco, so expect Twitter and FaceBook being jammed with fruity updates 😉

Major changes in iOS 6 are expected to include a new look, new Facebook sharing features built-in, and features borrowed from desktop software Mountain Lion.

The biggest change to be whispered is to hit Apple’s Maps app. Plans for iOS to ditch Google Maps for an own-branded cartographic route-planner is said to feature true turn-by-turn navigation and flashy 3D effects.

What else do you want from iOS 6? Let me know as we count down the hours 🙂
