Earlier this week Apple held its annual Worldwide Developer's Conference where they announced their latest mobile operating system iOS6.
New additions to iOS6 include an Apple maps application instead of Google maps.
Apple maps will have an interactive 3D mode and a flyover mode.
Apple state that their maps is "Designed by Apple from the ground up, Maps gives you turn-by-turn spoke directions, interactive 3D views, and the stunning Flyover feature.
All of which may just make this the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever."
Siri has some major updates and will now be even smarter and be able to know even more.
Apart from maps, one of the other major changes is that FaceTime will now work over a cellular network and not only on WiFi meaning that users can now have FaceTime video calls over their mobile phone cellular network.
iOS6 will be a free upgrade to users of the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS as well as the latest iPad and the iPad2 and the fourth generation of the iPod touch.
In addition to iOS6 Apple also announced updates to their MacBook range including a new MacBook Pro with a Retina display.
