Apple iOS 5 Review

AnandTech
25 October 2011
  • Conclusion: In iOS 5, we see Apple taking what some competitors have done better and implementing them in its own way. The parallels between iMessage and BlackBerry Messenger are impossible to ignore, same with the new iOS notifications and Android’s pull-down notification shade.

Review: Apple iOS 5

Wired
11 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Apple’s newest mobile operating system, iOS 5, debuts Wednesday with an exhausting list of 200-plus new features. That’s enough new stuff to keep you busy nerding out for weeks. And despite that, the software’s focus is to cut the cord between your iOS device and your computer, so you can spend less...
  • Pros: iCloud is the bomb. Notifications Center is the best thing Apple’s ripped off from Android yet. iMessage will save you coin, and piss off your carrier all at once. Upgrade is seamless.
  • Cons: Most of the improvements are only a big deal to people with multiple Apple devices. Reminders needs to hook up with Calender. Photostream and iCloud-powered device backup only work over Wi-Fi.

Apple iOS 5 review

IT PRO
21 October 2011
  • Summary: Even if iOS 5 wasn't filled to the rafters with new and improved features, it's hard to argue against installing it since it's free of charge. For existing iOS owners it's not a question of whether to upgrade, but when to upgrade.

Apple iOS 5

Techzine
1 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Apple zet met de introductie van iOS 5 weer grote stappen. Steve Jobs heeft er nooit een geheim van gemaakt dat een goede uitvinder ook goed moet kunnen stelen en dat heeft het bedrijf dan ook gedaan.
  • Pros: Volledig nieuw notificatiecentrum en verbeterd lockscreen;, iMessage maakt gratis SMSen mogelijk;, Veel minder afhankelijk van PC;, iPad krijgt veel langgevraagde toevoegingen;, Siri kan revolutionair zijn..
  • Cons: ..maar ondersteunt Nederlands en iPhone 4 (nog) niet;, Aardig wat 'leenwerk';
