Do you love Apple products? Are you an iPhone/iPod/iPad fanatic? Do you know what’s the latest iOS news doing the rounds?
Well, it’s time for me to give you a wake-up call or rather a shake-up call that iOS 5 has stepped into the big battleground of operating systems, and is now available for you guys. Huge multitudes of passionate iOS 5 freaks have already outpaced you in downloading and updated their devices to the recent entrant in operating systems war, iOS 5. But then some questions must have popped up in your mind by now—‘Why should I upgrade to iOS 5?’ ‘What’s so good about it?’ ‘What outstanding features does it have?’
It’s time to take a tour of some of its upgrade worthy features.
Notifications. This feature is undoubtedly the most prominent visual change that iPhone freaks had been craving for until now. Apple has, however, integrated this concept its own way. This new feature is especially more enticing since the apps can refine what and how to show you on the screen. I bet the users are going to love the notification access to a wide array of interesting widgets like weather and stock tickers.
Next amazing feature is iMessage. Though it’s not any new story on the board, the fascinating angle to it is that it functions across all iOS devices, over 100 million units sold until now. Aren’t these humongous numbers? Using this new feature, you can easily send across text messages to your friends or groups using any iOS device you possess, iPod or iPhone or iPad? Trust me, it’s going be a new and delightful communication experience for you altogether.
And now the bandwagon that almost each one of us has jumped on to. Yes, you guessed it right! It’s Twitter. The new iOS 5 has Twitter integrated into the system that has a big repository of features like camera roll, maps etc. Now if you wish to share a photograph with your friend, you need to prod that image and tap on to it to tweet the same. And, you’re DONE!
Let me touch the topic that would interest you to the hilt. We’re always looking out for opportunities to reconnect with our school/college days friends; friends we loved hanging out with and sharing our day-to-day experiences with. The exciting app released by Apple, Find My Friends, needs iOS to function, and lets you share your status and location updates with your buddies. Isn’t it cool?
Another captivating feature that deserves your attention is iCloud that lets you use an iOS device without any need of Mac, and maintain a repository or backup of photos, documents and other app settings.
Well, these are some of the ones that I’ve liked. Welcome your comments, insights and experiences of using the new features of iOS 5 once you try them out.
Until then keep eating Apple, a lovely gift from Sir Steve Jobs to all of us!
