For most, iOS 5 has been a very welcome update, but there have been a few issues, which we will go into a little later. Those with an iPad have been excited to get this latest version of Apple’s iOS software. However, we need to warn you that if you update, then it actually removes a feature, multitouch. One has to wonder how they can do this?
We have to stress that this only applies to the original iPad, but the loss of four and five-finger gestures will no longer be available to you. My wife has the iPad 1, and I cannot ever remember seeing her use mulitouch – maybe the feature will not be missed that much after all? Although Phones Review does say that the iPad does feel a little less useful without it.
If you are not bothered about this feature then you should upgrade now, if you haven’t done so already. There is only the one con to do so, but there are many pros, such as being able to use iMessage, Notifications, Reminders, Twitter notification and many more. However, it is the iMessage feature that is the icing on the cake for my wife and most other original iPad owners.
Talking of that iOS 5 problem, it took myself four attempts to get it installed. It said that there was some sort of internal error, after having that message coming up after three tries, I then decided to restore the phone to default. Again it did not work, it was then that I came to the realization that OS X Lion needed to be updated to the latest version.
I do hope that is of help to you, as I’m sure that some of you had the same problem?
