Apple has always been regarded as one of the most loved brands worldwide. With the recent launch of the iOS5, Apple’s most extensive software upgrade for its mobile devices, admiration for the brand has definitely grown bigger, showing its legion of fans that even to this day, innovation is what drives its huge success.
As expected, users of iOS5, who now enjoy over 200 new features in their favorite Apple device, are all-praises about this latest masterpiece. Its most notable features include the iCloud, a free service that automatically keeps all your Apple devices updated with your documents, apps, calendars, mail, contacts and so much more. iOS5 comes with free 5GB of online storage for all users.
Another popular feature is iMessage, a new messaging service which allows iOS5 users to send unlimited messages, photos, videos to other iOS5 users via WiFi or 3G. iMessage is integrated into the Messages service and appears in blue while regular text messages appear in green. Sending a message, photo or video using iMessage does not get charged as SMS/MMS against your Prepaid load or Postpaid bill as long as you use it with your Mobile Internet plan or with WiFi. iMessage also features wireless syncing, where users can start a conversation on one device and continue it on another. They can also track their sent messages with delivery and read receipts.
With iOS5, users can also enjoy exciting changes in the phone’s camera interface. With two clicks of the home button, users can access the camera from the lock screen and start shooting. Users can pinch the screen to zoom, tap the screen to focus and now shoot photos with a click of the + volume button.
Riding with the social networking phenomenon, iOS5 also makes it easier for users to post Twitter updates with a single sign-on, allowing them to tweet a website URL from Safari or a video link directly from YouTube. And speaking of Safari, iOS5 users can also enjoy a better Safari browser with tabbed browsing, a Reading List to save articles for later reading on any iOS device, and the Reader, which removes ads and other clutter from articles, paving the way for a distraction-free reading experience.
An improved Notification Center is also one of the added features of iOS5. Whereas in iOS4 all mobile activities are paused to display a new notification, notifications are no longer in the way with iOS 5, as incoming messages and app notifications appear briefly at the top without interrupting activity on the phone, and all messages are kept organized within a convenient Notification Center. Furthermore, new notifications can be viewed and attended to directly from the Lock Screen, making for quick and easy access.
So are you all set to take your Apple experience to the next level with iOS5? Before you upgrade to the most powerful iOS ever, note that using some of these new features will entail a data connection. To fully enjoy iOS5, it is best to register to a Mobile Internet plan. This way, you can always stay connected worry-free even without WiFi.
