Posted on: November 12, 2011

  • Apple unveiled its new iOS5 operating system for its smartphones and tablet PCs on Wednesday at its headquarters in the U.S.
  • New features, such as iCloud, a cloud-computing service that allows subscribers to store photos and music on a server for ubiquitous access, and iMessage, which enables users of Apple devices to send text messages to each other for free, are among the main selling points of the software.

  • iOS 5 is compatible with Apple’s smartphones, including the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, as well as the iPad and iPad 2. New models of the iPod Touch released after September, 2009 will also be able to run the operating system. Installing it merely requires connecting your device to a PC.
