How happy are you with Apple’s iOS 4.3 software update for mobile devices? It’s fair to say that there wasn’t any groundbreaking features to get excited about although the home sharing feature was a nice addition. With this in mind – what would you like Apple to add for iOS 5?
It seems likely that Apple will skip iOS 4.4 and move straight up to iOS 5 for the next software update, which means that the update is expected to be a major one with significant improvements for users to look forward to.
We’ve found an excellent article over at TechRadar, which lists 12 areas in which Apple need to improve upon for the release of iOS 5, which we hope will happen at WWDC 2011 in June.
Ideas include better folder options, as you can agree that the folder icon at the moment in iOS 4.3 is actually pretty ugly and dull, we’re sure Apple can come up with a better way of organising apps but still having a stylish interface to view them in. Other possible option for iOS 5 is wireless syncing, which we agree would be a great feature to have. This would be particularly useful if you want to sync some fresh music tracks instantly, without having the need to hook up a cable all the time.
We’ve also mentioned a few weeks ago that a brand new lock screen could be a possibility for iOS 5. This lock screen may end up looking like a similar design which you currently see on Android devices, meaning that the four digit code could be replaced by a series of dots and patterns which you’ll need to link up.
