-iOs 6 is packed with over 200 new features including a handful of new settings that can actually change the way you use your iPhone.
Let's get started with four of these new settings.
With "do not disturb" enabled not only will your iDevice be silenced but it'll also keep your screen from lighting up when you receive alerts.
And just so you know, the incoming call will be sent directly to voicemail.
To enable or disable "do not disturb" head to settings and toggle it here.
You can also schedule "do not disturb" mode by going to notifications, tap "do not disturb" and enter the times you want the feature to be enabled.
Below that, you'll see that you can allow calls from anyone marked as favorite and down here, you have the options to un-silence repeated calls and keys if someone might be calling you in an emergency.
This feature is very, very overdue.
You can now create different signatures for each e-mail account.
To set them up, go to settings then in mails, contacts and calendars.
At the bottom, tap signature and then select for account.
Now, I can create a unique signature for each of these accounts and everytime I compose a new e-mail, the appropriate signature will show up at the bottom.
So for work e-mail, I can use a signature with all my contact info and for personal accounts, I can use something
a little less formal.
If you're too busy to talk, there are 2 new ways to decline a call on iOS 6. When your phone rings, you'll see a new icon next to the slider.
Drag it up and you'll see the option to reply to the call with a message or you can set a time for your phone to remind you to call that person back.
If you choose to reply with a message, the person will be sent to voicemail and you can choose from 3 can responses.
But if none of those works for you, you can create your own custom message here.
Anytime you wanna add or remove can responses, go to settings, phone and reply with message.
The new privacy options in iOS 6 now make a lot more sense.
You can now control which system features apps can access from one central location.
To get started, go to settings then privacy.
When you tap any one of these categories, you can enable or disable access for any given app.
So if I tap photos, I can see that
Instagram is allowed to have access to my photo library.
To disable that, I can just toggle this button to off.
Those are just a few of the many new features in iOS 6. So for more tutorials on the new operating system, head on over to howto.cnet.com.
