Apple iOS 5 Review

AnandTech

  • 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. iCloud brings cloud-based information and data storage to iOS, something that has always been one of the cornerstones of Android.

iOS 5 Review: Ambitious update rings in the changes

Macworld
12 October 2011
  • Summary: We've not yet met the iOS update that we wouldn't recommend, and iOS 5 is certainly the most far-reaching and feature-rich upgrade to date. That said, it's not without its bugs and strange behaviors. But it's clearly paving ground for a lot of key functionality in the future, and even a lack of polish shouldn't keep you from upgrading.
  • Pros: Finally makes iOS devices viable without computer, Notification system is vastly improved, Massive update plugs many feature holes
  • Cons: Reminders app missing logical features, Lack of dictation on older hardware disappointing, Twitter integration buggy in places

Apple iOS 5

Techzine
16 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. Door functies en ideeën van anderen te gebruiken weet Apple haar mobiele besturingssysteem weer een stuk completer te maken. De introductie van Siri is een grote stap voor blinde mensen, maar ook voor de normale gebruiker.
  • 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';
