FaceTime over cellular enabled in iOS6, bringing unification to Apple ID and phone numbers

We're still taking in the list of features to be found in iOS 6 but one major feature announced at WWDC 2012 will surely please a lot of folks out there who use FaceTime.

Yes, absent for too long - FaceTime over cellular is coming enabled in iOS 6  - and that's not all.

In addition to FaceTime working over cellular networks, Apple will also be bringing unification of Apple ID and phone numbers.

In iOS 6, when it becomes available this fall, you will be able to answer calls anywhere you wish to do so; be it on your Mac, your iPhone or even your iPad.

You said it Justin! Why is D4RkNIKON even reading this? He should go comment on a Galaxy Nexus forum or something. Maybe they'd care what he thinks?

I was just thinking that lol!

Justin says:

I'm quite pleased to hear about unification of phone numbers and ID. It always felt a bit sloppy the way it's currently set up.

Brandon says:

Seriously the front facing camera is the most overrated feature in smart phones. Think how often you use Tango.

You understand thus significantly in relation to this subject, made me in my opinion consider it from a lot of various angles. Its like women and men don't seem to be interested except it's something to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs great. At all times care for it up!
