Apple iOS 5 review First look

    Apple iOS 5 review First lookIntroduction
    It's June again, time for Apple to make headlines. The WWDC is over and the iOS 5 and the iCloud are now official. It won't be before the fall though that the iOS 5 will officially launch.
    However, Apple has given us a taste of the iOS 5 by releasing a developer preview soon after the announcement. We went on to update an iPhone 4 with the beta release and we are ready to share our first impressions.
    Apple iOS 5 new features:
    Notifications - real time on-screen notifications, lockscreen notifications and pull-down Notification Center
    iMessage service in the Messaging app enabling instant messages to other iOS users
    Reminders - including location-aware options
    Customizable notification sounds - email, voicemail and calendar alerts
    Twitter integration

    iCloud service integration
    Enhanced Camera app - viewfinder grid, hardware shutter key
    Integrated photo editing - crop, auto enhance, rotate and red-eye fix
    Updated Safari - tabbed browsing (on iPad), private browsing mode, integrated Reader, Reading list and optimized performance
    Dictionary lookup throughout the interface
    Computer free operation - independent activation, OTA updates, iCloud backup and restore
    Wi-Fi synchronization with iTunes with automatic operation
    New features in the Mail app - Bold, Italic, Underline and Quote options, extended Search, mass Mark as Read/Unread and Flag setting, Add/Delete mailbox folders
    Updated Calendar and Game Center apps
    Newsstand app combining all of your magazine subscriptions

    iPod player now called Music, has new icon
    Separate Video app for iPhone
    AppStore purchase history (already available for iOS 4 too)
    New Storage management options (list and info of all installed apps)
    Multi-tasking gestures for iPad
    AirPlay mirroring for iPad
    New accessibility options involving the LED flash and custom vibrations
    Typically, there's still plenty of stuff missing and some of the things will probably never make it to the iOS. Here is a list of the things we continue to miss:
    Still missing:
    No Flash support in the web browser
    No quick toggles for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G
    No Facebook integration
    No proper widgets for the lockscreen
    App folders still are limited to 12 apps tops
    No DivX/XviD video support out of the box (though there're lots of players in the App Store)
    No USB Mass storage mode for uploading content to the device
    No haptics for the touchscreen
    No Bluetooth file transfers to other phones
    Contacts lack a swipe-to-delete or mass delete feature
    Well, the list is notably shorter than last year's. It's debatable though whether Apple listened to the users or just filled their time with low-priority features that have been on the list for quite some time. Either way, some of the new stuff is quite good so let's waste no more time on introductions. Follow us on the next page where we start to explore the iOS 5 at close range.
