The New iPhone 5: Additions, Upgrades and New Features

Apple’s iPhone has revolutionized the mobile phone industry. No one can deny this. One may surmise that it has spawned more copy-cats than any other tech gadget in the last 20 or 30 years. The newest iteration of the famed smartphone, the iPhone 5, should arrive sometime in October, 2011. New features include the new iOS 5.0, Apple’s iCloud service, more powerful A5 processor and an improved camera. All of these enhancements should encourage Apple lovers and skeptics alike to flock to the device, especially if it’s paired with Verizon’s 4G network.

iOS 5.0: iPhone 5’s New Operating System

According to the company’s website, Apple’s newest portable device operating system features 200 new improvements. It features a powerful new alert system, which will push all sorts of alerts from social networks, text messages, friend requests and the like directly to the user. This has become a mainstay in most Android powered phones, so it’s a good thing that Apple has decided to join in with this feature. Actually, iOS 5.0 shows the notifications quickly and lets them disappear swiftly without being a big interruption to the user. To see more, a simple swipe over the message is all that’s needed.

iOS 5.0’s Newsstand Feature

The iPhone 5 will feature something that Android users has been wanting for a while: an attractive, built-in news and magazine delivery app. RSS feeds are all the rage for Internet-savvy consumers, and a sleek new way to organize and view it is what the iOS 5.0 Newsstand app brings. You can also easily purchase premium magazine and newspaper subscriptions as well, and the app displays them in a very aesthetically impressive way. When new issues are released by the publisher, the app updates itself automatically. When you look over your virtual bookshelf, new covers are on display for your perusal. A very impressive job here for Apple.

iCloud for iPhone 5

Apple’s iCloud service, which allows users to sync pictures, programs, documents and calendars with the iCloud servers, will be available on the iPhone 5. This can help users store even more data to be retrieved through their phones, and will also be an outlet for Apple to lease music to users through the service. Cloud storage is definitely a hot topic right now, so this development is certainly making sense to most users.

The A5 Processor and the iPhone 5 Camera

Featuring a dual-core CPU, the A5 processor will effectively double the iPhone 5’s power and ability to process tasks. One may worry about battery consumption with all of this increased power, but Apple has taken another idea from the open-source Android marketplace and added on-the-fly power control. This will allow the CPU to lower or increase its speed to suit a situation, so that the battery will not die quite as quickly.
