iOS 6: Higher hanging fruit

What will Apple bring to iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad with iOS 6? What will be the "tentpole" features to take Apple's mobile software into 2013? With WWDC 2012 coming in just over a week, and an iOS 6 beta widely expected to come with it, now's the perfect time to take a look and see what makes sense.

We've already seen some of what is likely coming in iOS 6, including a new version of the Maps app that replaces Google data with Apple data. It wouldn't surprise us in the least if it brings turn-by-turn navigation with it either, by way of Siri...

But what else could Apple bring with iOS 6?

Orbit Social Phonebook for iPhone Hands-on -- TiPb @ CES 2010

Orbit aims to do for your iPhone what Syngergy does for Palm's webOS -- aggregate all your contacts and their status -- but with an equal and opposite focus on notification management.

So, not only can you link together your friend's contact info along with their Facebook, Twitter, etc., you can group them into various "orbits" (and each contact can be in more than one "orbit"), create all manner of filters, and raise or lower the "volume" of notification you receive.

So, you can set the volume of your raging editor in chief to "high" and your in-laws to "low".

TiPb has discussed this before -- after the rush to Push Notification, we have devices pinging and poping at us all the time and that can become as useless as no notifications.

Orbit [Free -- iTunes link] has just gone live in the App Store, check it out. Video after the break!
