Cool new iOS 6 features not discussed during Monday's keynote

The keynote on Monday covered 10 new features of iOS 6, but those are, of course, just a small fraction of the 200 new features that this update will offer. A blog post on Gizmodo has collected 10 (and counting) of the coolest new features that weren't mentioned on Monday, and the blog comments are highlighting even more. If you use the Clock app as an alarm, with iOS 6 you'll be able to select any song on your iPhone or iPad to serve as the alarm. In addition, the iPad has a new Clock app. Also of note are new App Store and iTunes Store apps that are more attractive and easier to navigate. And an important addition is a new item in settings that lets you conrol the privacy settings for all of the apps that have asked your permission to access location, contacts, calendars, reminders, and photos.
