One of the iPhone 4 news that I’m sure many of us have found exciting is that an update to iOS 5 has been made available. If you go through the trouble of installing this software update on your iPhone, you will notice the addition of an impressive number of features to your iPhone 4. It’s true that you won’t get the now famous Siri virtual assistant, the faster processor and a higher resolution rear camera, but at least you will get to access the iMessage app and use an improved notification system along with other 200 new features (at least that’s the estimation Apple has made).
What’s also important to mention is that iOS 5 can be install on the iPhone 4 as well as on the iPhone 3GS, the two versions of iPad currently available on the market and the iPod Touch (third and fourth generation). That means you will be able to make sure you experience the same software quality on all your iOS devices. Many say that the experience will be better than what iOS 4 has to offer. That means you will most likely start feeling like you are the owner of a brand new phone.
About the notifications system I can tell you that you will no longer be annoyed by pop-up boxes that interrupt your current activity. That’s because all the news that your iPhone 4 has to deliver will be added to a section available at the screen’s top. The notification tray will gather all the system news that might be of interest for you and will make them available as soon as you swipe down. What can you ask more than one single location for all system notifications and easy access? You will also be impressed by the newly added iMessage app that has what it takes in order to compete with the popular BlackBerry Messenger that RIM makes available on all its smartphones. It’s a fast social networking app that won’t add costs to your monthly phone bills, because it’s designed to send messages over the usual data network.
If you install iOS 5 on the iPhone, you will also find it less complicated to use the 5-megapixel camera available. That’s because you can now launch the camera app by simply double-clicking the Home button. You can use the same action even if the iPhone is in standby. After the software’s launch you will notice new editing features and better management of the photos in display.
If you are interested in the update, you need to upgrade to iTunes 10.5 and then connect your iPhone 4 to your computer. The update button will take care of the rest of details.
