Every year and with each new iteration of iOS Apple closes that gap. This year was no exception and Apple did give us a few things that we previously could only achieve via jailbreak like FaceTime over the network. But is what we got enough? Will iOS 6 leave just as much of a need to jailbreak?

I think so and here's why.

Apple quietly releases new iPad Smart Case

Apple quietly released a new iPad Smart Case, amongst the many other announcements at WWDC 2012.

When the Apple Store went back online shortly after the keynote, many people noticed that Apple had snuck in a new iPad accessory into the store, 'The iPad Smart Case."

The 'Smart Case' is compatible with both the iPad 2 and the new iPad, and covers both the front and back of the device, giving your device extra protection. It's made out polyurethane and works with all current 'Smart Covers', giving you the same functionality, in both 'typing' and 'watching' positions. You can customise your 'Smart Case' with Apple's free lazer engraving service.

Apple announces new Maps app, complete with turn-by-turn navigation, Siri integration, and 3D models

Apple announced their much-rumored in-house Maps application at WWDC today.

Maps includes a lot of great new features, including 3D buildings, turn-by-turn navigation, local search with some back-up from Siri.  Maps also includes live traffic information that's anonymously crowd-sourced from iPhone and iPad owners. The live traffic data will also update your estimated time of arrival as you progress on your journey. Your navigation view will also show on the lock screen which is really nice. Asking your iPhone "are we there yet?" will even work through Siri, but you'll likely be spending more time using Siri for local search, such as to find the nearest gas station.
