The major revision in Apple iOS has come up with some interesting features in the shape of iOS 5. There were some overdue features, which have been included in the magnificent version of Apple iOS 5. Apple has made some drastic changes to overcome the previous shortcomings of the iPhone operating system.
People are sick of notifications
In previous versions, Apple iOS users were pissed off by the different notifications in the course of playing some game or some other activity on their iPhone. Really, it was quite irritating to receive a notification or some SMS, especially when you were playing a game and suddenly, the notification occupied the screen.
Until and unless, you reply to the message, the notification will stick to your iPhone screen. It was quite interrupting for those people who love to play games on their iPhone. Similarly, in its old versions, it was quite annoying to deal with the alerts if your device was inactive.
Before you unlock the mobile screen, the notification will be vanished. In this version, a specified notification centre will serve you by combining missed calls, messages, and updates in a separate place.
At least, now you can play your games and do your work without interruption of notifications.
Now you can use it freely
The apple iOS 5 is a major breakthrough, as it can be used for Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Similarly, it can be paired with GSM and CDMA versions with greater ease. Multi touch system is ever speedy, as you were expecting from flawless Apple multi-touch technology. The iOS gives you really long battery life for web browsing and calls.
Newsstand, an interesting feature
Just like iBooks, the “Newsstand” app in iOS 5 will let you subscribe the magazines in a single place. This is a new concept and this way, you don’t need to grab them manually when they publish. Newsstand will do it automatically for you and the new issue of any magazine will be delivered to you automatically. The success of this interesting feature is dependent upon its use. Suppose, if you are not subscribing to some magazines, then it is quite useless for you.
Post photos with greater ease
Now, you don’t need to leave image gallery in your iPhone, if you want to share some photos on your Facebook or twitter account. It’s quite convenient to post your photo directly from the gallery. The days are over when you used to close the gallery and switch to the twitter app of your iPhone for photo posting. This latest version of iOS will help you add a location, or to sync Twitter with your existing contacts list in your mobile. In addition, you can also tweet directly from Safari, YouTube, and Maps.
Your data is more secure now
Now, you can set a unique password to lock your iPhone and stop illicit access to your iPhone. Another amazing feature of this operating system is that if you have lost your Apple iPhone or somebody has stolen it, you can locate it through Google map. Apple iOS 5 makes your information and data safe by requesting your permission for different locations and applications on the internet.
More options for Mail
If you want to enjoy the rich text formatting, then you should check out its new mail options. It’s quite easy to search for messages beneath the body, if you don’t want to go through the old fashioned ‘To’ and ‘From’ option. The new version of iOS has a better indent control, massage flagging and the ability to do fast address dragging in between CC/BCC lines.
iMessage, a must use app
Apple takes a shot at BlackBerry with this instant messaging app that will work across all iOS 5 devices. The iOS 5 is well-equipped operating system, as it can be competed with “BlackBerry” with its fastest texting service. Like the “BBM” feature in BlackBerry, you can also exchange text messages in bulk. If you want to share photos and videos with others, then you can do it with greater ease. Like this fringe benefit, you can do this instant bulk texting and photo sharing without counting on your monthly mobile packages.
You can also get group messaging through a sophisticated indicator to see if someone is typing to you. iMessage will work on 3G and Wi-Fi networks. You will also enjoy its “group messaging” feature, which will let u know if someone is texting you. You can also use it on Wi-Fi and 3G networks.
Find My Friends
You can find the location of your friend through “find my friends” app of Apple iOS 5. This app will help you find the location of your friend in real life. It means that you can find your friends whenever and wherever you want to. Keep it in mind that it’s only possible if your friend is willing to share some information about his location. So, what’s your plan about buying Apple iOS 5?
