Apple is slowly adding more stock applications onto the iPad with iOS 6, but we are still missing the actual “stocks” application. Well, atleast on the homescreen for the most part.
What I mean by this is that the stocks application is on the iPad, it just doesn’t have an icon. Ask Siri “Open the stocks app,” and surely she will do so. The only problem is the stocks application hasn’t been designed for the iPad, and you must view the app in either the smaller 1x mode, or 2x mode.
Just go ahead and test it out yourself. Its pictured above if you don’t have an iPad. But nonetheless this is odd. If I had to guess, Apple is working on formatting a few of the stock apps to work with the iPad before the official iOS 6 release.
