Users of Apple devices have reported increased productivity with regard to the recent update of iOS.

The version, dubbed iOS6, has added more than a 100 improvements to the system, with items ranging from accessibility to performance. It has been a huge step forward for the Apple platform, incorporating many of the most expected changes to popular utilities.

Controversy

Not not just the improvements have marked headlines for the new mobile operating system. A large number of people have also complained about missing pieces such as the youtube App. This has forced users to change their watching behaviors, such as going to the youtube webpage instead of using the App.

Another point of contention has been the updated maps application. Apple is not using anymore the data from Google, which means that it will take some time for Apple to polish the geographic data currently available.

Speed

The biggest improvement for iOS6 has been speed. The web browser has received massive improvements, and it is now very fast on both iPhone4S and iPhone 4. iPhone 5 is shipping already with iOS6 pre-installed.

Many educational applications will welcome the use of extra space provided by the iPhone 5. These apps will be able to provide a better learning experience with more details and increased areas for additional information.

All in all, the iOS6 has already proved to be a positive step in the Apple ecosystem for mobile devices, and will have a great impact on educational Apps.

The Youtube success has generated a lot of press in the last months. Nowadays, Youtube is a force in several areas of online collaboration, going from marketing campaigns to even politics.
Apple also wants to take part of the Youtube scene. First, they decided to integrate Youtube with the AppleTV, in a new try to conquer the living room.
The latest news on the attempt of integration with Youtube has been released this morning. Apple is saying that they will integrate Youtube with the iPhone.
This shows at least two things
Apple is in great relationship with Google. And this looks great for both companies, since they have offers that complement each other (despite the small areas in which they have overlapping strategies)
The Youtube phenomenon can probably move to the mobile phone, where it can get even more viral. The iPhone can well be the platform that will allow even more widespread distribution of small videos created by the Youtube users.
So this seems great for everyone involved, and probably users and investors will take notice.
