Apple has recently released a beta version of iOS 5. ‘iOS 5’ will run on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad, iPad 2 and iPod Touch (3rd and 4th generation). The operating system that was first released in 2007, hopes to attract customers by introducing new features in the 5th edition. Apple claims that they have added 200 new features in the new operating system and are planning to release the full iOS 5 in fall of 2011. It is very unlikely that a person will use all the new features, but here is a list of top 3 features that you will use for sure.
Notifications such as messages, e-mails, reminders, friend requests, etc will now be displayed at the top of the screen and can be displayed by swiping down the notification area. The notification will also appear when the phone is locked and will require only swipe down process to view it. Whenever a new notification appears, it will appear on the top of the screen and will also disappear automatically such that the users are not interrupted in their current task.
Now you don’t need a computer to sync your iPad, iPhone or iTouch. You can directly connect to the internet through Wi-Fi and start using the gadget. This synchronization feature is an attempt to replace PCs and laptops to iPads. Honestly, this is actually quite possible as iPad does have all the necessary requirements those fulfilled by PCs and Laptops.
Now you can directly buy magazines from this new feature called Newsstand. E-books are extensively used in iPads and the Newsstand will definitely bring out some major daily sales.
