New Enhancements In The iOS 6 Phone App [WWDC12]



Apple announced some nice enhancements to the iPhone’s Phone app in iOS 6 today. Instead of simply having to accept or decline a call, you can now reply with an iMessage or have the OS remind you to call back later. The Phone app can remind you in one hour, or use geofencing to remind you when you leave a certain area.

The iOS 6 Notification Center’s ‘Do Not Disturb” feature allows for even finer control of the Phone app. You can set your iPhone to only allow calls from favorite contacts, certain contact groups, or even a number that calls more than once in three minutes. That’s right, no more prank calls!
