Apple’s iOS 5 Overview
Now with the iPhone 4s released, now is a great time to have an overview what you will
With the new update that rolled out for all iDevices ranging from iPhones to iPod Touches to iPads, it is a pretty big deal considering the market share that these devices have. But if you are in the dark of knowing what is so important about this update, we have the answer in this Post.
(Before I begin I would like to say that not all these features are available on certain generations of hardware, you have been notified.)
New Features Included
-New Personal Setup- When you get a new iDevice (Or reset your device) you also have a new personal setup when you first start it up where you can set it up right at the device instead of got o iTunes screen. A newly redesigned interface adds the inclusion of even restoring your old setup from a previous iDevice (But only from the same model, you cant open a iPod back up on a iPad, but you can do it for iPod to iPhone or vise-versa). Everything you did at iTunes is in a easy on phone/pad/touch system. I like it.
-iCloud- In case if you haven’t known about this new feature to iDevices, iCloud allows people to universally store their photos, documents, music across the internet and now your iDevice can share your files across the web.
-Over the Air Updates-Now you can get small time updates over the internet.
-New Camera App Features- (With new effects for times of fun!)
