During the Apple iPad event today, CEO Tim Cook casually mentioned that iOS 5.1 will be available today. In addition to Siri support for Japanese, the OS has a few other new tricks, here's what to expect.
Attenshun iPhone, iPad and iPod users! The wait is over! The iOS 5 untethered jailbreak is now available for iPhone, iPad and iPod using Redsnow. You just need to follow the following steps and enjoy your non-authorised apps right away:
Siri is freaking cool, but unfortunately if you're not a hacker the chances of accessing Apple's Darpa-funded A.I. on anything but an iPhone 4S are nil. But a new IOS update makes some Siri hacking legal. Is Apple willing to free Siri?
Jailbreaking your iPhone is a glorious process that opens your phone to a brave new world of features and apps. But with iOS 5, the process has only worked with your phone tethered (or semi-tethered) to your computer. Until right now.
You know the saying "measure twice, cut once"? Looks like Apple's measuring twice and cutting twice to overcome the battery issues that still plague iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S; the company will reportedly push another update next week to fix the problem. Fingers crossed.
Apple just rolled out the update we've been waiting for. The one that fixes the incredible shrinking battery life. Just plug your iPhone into iTunes and start updating. Nowhere near your computer? The over the air update of iOS 5.0.1 is available now.
The iOS 5 Shortcut feature buried within the keyboard settings is useful if often overlooked, but oh wow is it a great way to prank your friends. Everything has changed. Passcode your phone before someone gets you.
If you are an obsessive user interface jerk like me, you may have noticed the slight design changes in iOS 5. They are almost invisible but they are there, from two-pixel position adjustments to transparency changes in the badges' shadows.
The iPhone 4S's Siri is sassy and she's everybody's new favorite toy, but it turns out she's leaving the door open for strangers to access of information on your phone even when it's locked. Siri! How could you?
Apple's latest iOS brings enhanced location services to your iPhone. So enhanced that some apps make it seem a little bit scary at just how well they're tracking you, even when the app isn't running — but it's a good thing! Right?
I like Newsstand but some people don't! And if you're like them, it's pretty annoying how you can't hide the Newsstand away in a Folder in iOS 5. But wait! You can. All you need is some super fast fingers. Here's how.
