New features in iOS 5.1 for iPhone and iPad
New operating system iOS 5.1 released for the iPhone and iPad on 7th March. As I am being the iOS user and app developer for more than 2 years, I love the each and every updates released by apple for its device. The exciting thing about the apple is that it always bring awesome features with its software update. The cool thing I got to see is the camera icon just right to the ‘slide to unlock’ which can be open by up sliding the camera icon. This feature is to take photos and video without unlocking. With this iOS 5.1 update the whole system is amazyingly fast, as I have tested it with my iPhone 4, it’s much more faster then earlier iOS version. Many thanks for the update.
This iOS 5.1 update – address and fix the iPhone’s much-noted battery issues for iPhone 4s too.
