Preparing for iPhone 5 and iOS 5 release

Hopefully next week we will see the launch of the next version of the iPhone, and it should also mean that the new operating system will also be made available. When iOS 5 is launched it will be made available for a variety of Apple’s mobile products, so today we are looking at preparing for the iPhone 5 and iOS 5 release.

iOS 5 will be released anytime soon and Jason Parker of Cnet has written an article about getting your device ready for the update. This will be the perfect time to erase all the rubbish that doesn’t get used anymore, like unused applications or music. You will then be able to easily reorganize all your home screens.

Once you do have iOS 5 you will no longer have to plug your device in to sync, but it will be worth doing for one more time before the update. It will be a good idea to make sure you have all the latest versions of the apps you do want to keep before iOS 5 hits, as this should ensure a smooth change over.

All the apps and media you use quite often organize into folders so it’s easier to find what you are looking for. The software will suggest names for the folders once apps are dropped in, but you could always use things like Work, Games, Music, and Utilities etc. The applications you use the most if they are not already there, move as many as you can to the main home screen.

Now would be a good time to decide what photos you want to stay on your PC and ones you would liked synced over to your iPhone, and then back up your device on last time then your good to go. It is thought that iOS 5 will be available a few days ahead of the new iPhone so it could be with us next week.

Are you looking forward to iOS 5?
