iOS 5 review

iOS 5 review

Complete review of Apple's iOS 5 software update for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad

iOS 5 is perhaps Apple's most audacious update since iOS 2, which introduced nothing less than the App Store and MobileMe. The features are almost an embarrassment of riches, including unobtrusive Notifications, the carrier-consternating iMessage, Twitter integration, a location aware Reminders app, and an entirely new UI paradigm in the artificially intelligent Siri voice control system for iPhone 4S.

And for the first time what's happening on the outside is just as compelling -- iCloud. Apple called it "cutting the cord", severing the post-PC from the PC, and the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad from their subservience to Mac and Windows.

But is it truly transformation or just another bold yet ultimately evolutionary step forward? Let's find out.

iCloud.com goes live for everyone

Apple has flipped the giant switch in their giant data center and taken the beta tags off iCloud.com, the web front end for their new sync store/push system. Head on over, enter your Apple ID, and free Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Find my iPhone, and iWork documents in the cloud, can be yours.

Sure, people have been sneaking in and checking it out for a while now, but with the wrapper officially off, no doubt more will come in for the tour.

Why I'm not updating to iOS 5

Why I'm not updating to iOS 5

Tomorrow Apple releases iOS 5 to the public and while millions will rush to grab it and bring iTunes' servers to their knees, I for one will be taking a pass. At least for now. The reason is simple -- I'm not willing to give up my beloved Jailbreak.

I like being able to put more apps in the dock than Apple allows. I like being able to respond to texts without having to go back to the Messages app and change my settings with a swipe. I like being able to leave gaps on my home screen and I like seeing cool FX happen when I swipe from one screen to another.
