Apple Announces New Photo Stream Social Networking Options In iOS 6 [iPhone 5 Event]



This seems new: Apple just announced that in iOS 6, you’ll be able to share photos through Photo Stream with friends, and when you share, you can comment on the photos, have your friends comment on photos and even like photos, with all changes pushed to you by notification. It looks like Facebook integration into Photo Stream, but Apple’s not calling it that. Is this Apple getting into the photography social networking game?

Also, Apple’s right. Alex Heath is a slob. Someone get that poor hobo a clean shirt.

Speakers have five magnet transducers, which is up from three.

And the earpiece? Built in noise canceling of your own audio out. That’s actually super impressive.

These are the silent killer upgrades. Expect the iPhone 5 to be the best sounding smartphone in the world.
