iPad 3: iOS 6 Update And Release In 30 More Countries
iPad 3 has emerged in the market as one of the best tablets in terms of functionality and graphic appeal as well. The tablet offers Retina Display, supreme GPU and a quad core based processing at a modest price tag of $499. These features are a major reason for the fact that this tablet is selling like hotcakes globally. Despite of the global acclaim, no tablet is perfect. Likewise, there are some minor shortcomings in the iPad 3. They are minor in the sense that these shortcomings are in the software, so they can be rooted out with an update. The update can be in the form of iOS 6. Some interested news has been received pertaining to this update. A report was seen at AppleInsider that a developer was able to reach out to Apple through the bug report response. The main thing was that Apple responded back.
The problem submitted to Apple was pertaining to the addition of multiple users to iPad 3. Apple responded back by saying that they have identified this problem and are working on the “engineering process”. This response can be deemed encouraging in the sense that Apple is developing an update. From this, we can get a hint that there might be a new feature from Apple regarding iPad 3. This feature would be a part of iOS then.
News surfaced during earlier half of 2012, where Apple had been apparently developing multiple user support for iPad. The principle was that it would make use of the front facing camera and link it with facial recognition. This would help the user with tasks like customization of apps and various related settings. iPad 3 has a very good front camera, and this multiple user support might actually come to realization.
With little time left in the Worldwide Developer Conference, which is to be held in San Francisco, Apple might go for the launch of iOS 6 rather than iPhone 5. Furthermore, if Apple indeed has worked this support out, then this is an ideal platform for them to unveil it. This feature would also become a reason for iPad 3 becoming the universal tablet of choice for many people. Users can conveniently share the iPad at home or workplace. This support would add to the diversity of the latest tablet. Since, iPad 3 has all the necessary features, this support feature would be an icing on the cake. So, there is a possibility that Apple pleases its customers at the Worldwide Developer Conference this year and releases this update.
