After last Monday, the new mobile operating system iOS 5 has been beta tested for one week. Apple’s iOS 5 has had a review on the upgrade compared to iOS 4.
iOS 5 has new features like Notification Centre, iMessage and lots more. In an article by Edgar Roth, from It’s All Tech, he explains the tests done on the installation of iOS 5 on a Verizon iPhone 4, and that they’ve been going great since the initial setup.
There is a vast improvement in comparison to iOS 4 and it seems like Apple have added missing components lacking in its predecessors. The new features are what some might think should’ve been available in the previous editions and maybe Apple was holding back.
It’s All Tech have let us know their views on iOS 5 after a 6 day test. The Notification Center has come a long way, with initial banners that appear at the top of the screen to notify you and a UI that has weather and stock widgets. Although there is still more room for on and off switches for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
The iMessage feature has not had the required usage to make a decisive opinion but seems to be like an improved version of the messenger service on the Blackberry. Newsstand is ideal for the magazine viewers, yet an option to hide would be useful for others.
The Reminders application is informative and ideal for Twitter and location based reminders. This option could use more integration especially with the Calendar application. The camera access from lock screen will prove to be handy also HDR photo are easily accessible, a few bugs are to be expected.
PC free setup seems to be a long awaited feature, Wireless synchronizing can be useful and the iCloud features of over the air updates are always going to be a welcome addition. You can now flag messages in iOS Mail app, which shows that Apple has seen that Mail needed an update. The overall performance is apparently similar to iOS 4.
Maybe you have had the chance to recently install iOS 5 beta and have praise or concerns. With future assessments, it looks like the iOS 5 has had a good going over already and the results sound good. For more details, visit benzinga.com. Are you looking forward to installing iOS 5?
