Here's a sneak look at iOS 6 on the new iPad and what are the cool features that it brings which will be of use to the tourists renting our TouristPads.

Maps

First, let's take a look at maps. You will notice on our TouristPads that the Transport tab now has the rebooted Maps app from Apple:

Apple Maps has replaced Google Maps as the native maps app in iOS, and I must say it looks prettier now. The icons indicating roads, train stations, restaurants, hotels, museums, to name a few, have a much better design compared to Google Maps'. There's a 3D mode where you can see the map in perspective, which should help you find your way around even better. Better than a physical map, this map actually shows you where you are all the time. Never get lost again. Now even better!

We have taken a screen shot of the new Maps App:

Facetime, over cellular

Facetime over cellular is also exclusively available on the new iPad (3rd generation). Tourists will be able to use their Facetime account to (video) call their loved ones on Apple's networks without the use of Wi-Fi, which means that you can now make calls anytime, anywhere back home using FaceTime. Note that with Skype preloaded, you can also make phone calls via Skype on 3G cellular anytime anywhere with your Skype account to any number in the world. Say byebye to roaming mobile costs when you use our iPad rental service for your stay in Singapore.

Personal Hotspot

Tourists who bring along their laptops and other smart devices are going to love their rental for this. Personal Hotspot is now enabled on our TouristPads, which would allow you to connect all your devices to the internet through the wireless hotspot on our new iPads. No more fretting about finding a wireless hotspot at your hotel, or on the go anywhere in Singapore. Comes with all our rentals!
