Five awesome updates coming to your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
Apple unveiled their new iOS 5 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch yesterday and although the new OS won’t be available until fall, there are some pretty amazing additions that bring iOS on par with other mobile operating systems like Android and BlackBerry OS. Although there are over 200 new features, we select five of our favorite ones.
Considering the popularity of BBM in the region, this is probably the most awaited feature by iPhone fans and one that has BlackBerry users worried. Like the BlackBerry Messenger, iMessage will allow iPhone, iPad and even iPod touch users to send messages over WiFi or 3G. You will be able to send text, photos, videos, locations as well as contacts and like BBM, get delivery reports and read receipts. What is not supported yet is Group Chats.
