Apple unveils the iOS5
| by Karan Shah |
So Apple’s new iPhone has been launched and it boasts of a range of new features. Here’s a brief rundown on all of them that are part of the iOS5.
Notifications have been included as well
Newsstand will allow you to read on-the-go
For example, you can ask Siri about the weather "What is the weather like today?" Siri: "Here is the weather for today_____”
iMessage - similar to BBM for BlackBerry users is a part of iOS5
Siri can basically assist you in meetings, emails, directions, weather, stocks, looking up contacts, creating notes and so on. Lastly, it works on Wi-Fi and 3G. Siri will automatically reply to texts with your spoken messages and set calendar appointments. Scott created a reminder, "Remind me to call my wife when I leave work." Siri asks to confirm and makes the reminder. Siri already had an idea about his wife and therefore, set up a geofence around work. Finally, he wrapped up the iOS5 announcement by asking Siri "who are you?" To which he gets a reply, "I am your humble personal assistant."
The iOS 5 alongwith iCloud will be available from October 12. So, that pretty much wraps up everything for the iOS5. What do you think? Is Apple's latest offering more on the evolutionary side, or revolutionary side? Let us know in the comments section below.
