Guest posted a topic in All Things MaciTunes Store unavailable 10:36AM ET December 5, 2012 Anyone else experiencing this? I tried to get an update from the iTunes Store both through iTunes and through my iPhone 4S and it says to try later that the iTunes Store is unavailable. Weird. It happened twice as well just since the move to iTunes 11. This is not in Windows which is listed here. This is on Mac OS X 10.7.5 and iOS 6.0.1.

[http://www.apple.com/ios/ios6/ The biggest new feature, in my opinion (and I guess Apple's, because they lead with it), is Maps. In iOS6, Google Maps is out and in its place is a new in-house Map application. Maybe the most useful feature of Maps will be turn-by-turn directions, which feature live traffic (and re-routing based on traffic conditions) and (I believe) Siri control. Which is actually the next thing featured, Siri: Gone is the restriction to open apps, which I thought was weird. Just like iOS5 added Twitter support, iOS6 will add Facebook support: Photo Stream gets improvements: Maybe this is good, but I've never used Photo Stream, or really understood it. A new app was introduced, Passbook. Sounds kind of neat, but I believe there are apps that do this already. Not unlike Apple to take a good idea though. Facetime will be usable over cellular data. The phone is getting a few new features: The interface is like the current lock screen showing the camera icon. Slide up for more options. Mail and Safari get a few minor (IMO) upgrades, Find My iPhone gets a "Lost" mode, Find My Friends adds location-based alerts, and the stores (iTunes, App Store, iBookstore) all get facelifts. Seems a little underwhelming to me, but iOS is already in a pretty polished state and just needs a few tweaks here and there. I would have liked to seen some new features in Messages, and they could have stolen/borrowed/taken ideas from BiteSMS, which is a messaging app for jailbroken devices.
