Everybody is eagerly waiting for the iPhone 5 because of the powerful software as well as hardware that has been used in the phone. People can have a look at the new iPhone a few months from now. A new kind of software IOS 6 is been expected to be found in the new iPhone. But the software is also expected to come to the iPhone 4S as well as the new iPad by the company. The inclusion of the new software is going to be announced between the 5th and the 11h of June at the WWDC.
Apple needs some time to prepare for the new IOS 6 which is to be included in the new iPhone. A few months of testing are required before it is officially released in the market.
There have already been a lot of rumors regarding the release date of the new iPhone from apple. If everything goes according to plan then the iPhone is set to be released in the month of October. On the other hand the release date of the software IOS 6 is set for a few days before the release of iPhone 5. The new features and software introduced by apple is usually done in the WWDC. In the previous year apple introduced the camera application, newsstand, OT software updates and lots of other features in WWDC. Apple is going to make the IOS updates available for iPad as well as iPhone. But iPad 1 and the iPhone 3S might not get the update because they do not have the processor require for it.
There is a wish list on every consumer’s mind regarding the features of iPhone 5.
People want a few widgets in the iPhone 5. Widgets play a great role for the android phones which offers fast and better access to different kinds of information as well as controls and settings. But in case of the iPhone there are only 2 widgets found. This is why the wish of the consumer is to get more number of widgets to make things easy for them. It is always better to have the notification of the widgets on the home screen. But there must be certain limitations if apple wants to put some more widgets to the notification list. There must be some limits to the numbers the users can place in the notification center. This can prevent users from scrolling down and down to see more widgets which come along with the notifications.
Easy Access to the Notification Center
The next requirement of the user is regarding the access to the settings available in the notification center. The settings tool is much more important than the widgets as it can help turn the WiFi, 4G LTE and Bluetooth on and off. The setting tool must be present in the notification center. Other than this, the SB settings also need to become a part of IOS 6. Android always offers the settings tool in the notification center. The jail broken phones also offer this kind of facilities. Apple has a good record with the jailbreak phone updates and this is why it can be expected from apple.
The next feature that the consumers might expect is regarding the facebook integration. Apple worked on twitter integration in the previous IOS. Apple has made it quite simple to upload photos and share links in twitter but there is no such help in case of facebook. You need to open to application to do these things. This is the reason why people find it easier to upload photos on twitter than on facebook. This app is surely a welcome change.
Sharp Contact Application
The users also expect an improved contact application for the IOS 6. The contact apps should be able to add photos to the scrolling screen and there must be a grid layout for those contacts which are used more often. To get the images apple can connect to twitter or facebook so that images can be pulled down easily.
How to Clear Notifications
There must also be an easy way to clear notifications. The notification center has improved a lot from the previous times but still it requires some kind of improvement. There is a small X on the right side of the notification which sometimes makes it difficult to clear notifications with one hand. Instead of using the X it is a better option to swipe right and left to clear single notifications as well as all of them together. Apple uses the method of shaking to clear typing and the method of swiping to open the notifications. So the new feature is not going to be much difficult for the IOS 6.
Getting IM Support
The next feature required is the IM in the messages. The message feature usually help the users send text message, photos as well as video message over the phone. This is a common feature is the iPad, iPhone as well as Mac. These do not require extra fees. But IOS 6 can always support IM for messages. It can connect to google chat and AIM as well as other IM services. This can help more and more people connect with their friends and other people quite easily through chat.
More Apps in One Folder
Apple allows putting 12 applications inside a folder. The game or entertainment apps therefore might require a number of folders. This is a limitation which needs to be checked. The jail broken phones usually have multiple apps in one folder. But this feature does not bother people as much as the other features and this is the reason why apple might not give priority to this feature.
The siri application is also expected to be found in the IOS 6 for the iPhone 5. The siri application is usually found in beta but apple is trying to get it for the new phone. It is expected that this feature is going to offer better performance. But siri is a feature which many do not want because it takes lot of time to call and send text messages. Siri seriously requires an improvement in its performance. Siri can be used to open apps and play certain playlists.
Automated Sound Profiles
The other feature expected is the sound profiles which are aware of the locations. The phone must automatically change the ringers based on the location. Some people use hilarious ringtones and message tones. These tones are good when you are not at work. But at workplace you need to be serious and hence you need a good change in ringtone and other tones. Apple can always solve this problem by placing an auto changer application in the phone. Once the location gets changed the ringtone automatically changes. The phone should know when you are going to work and when you are coming out of it. This is how the ringers change according to the situation and the location.
More Apps on Screen
Running a number of apps on the screen at once is a feature which the users are looking up to for the iPhone 5. This feature is found in the iPad where a person can navigate between a numbers of windows and can open a number of applications at the same time. This application is something which can help lots of people work without tension.
Managing the Files
Adding a file manager to the new IOS can help lots of users. But it is a fact that apple might not add the file manager to the IOS. But if this was possible then the users could easily download the multimedia files and change them according to their requirement. Apple might not offer the full scale system for file access but a certain amount of control over the files which are being downloaded can be useful to the users and this would surely become a welcome change in the iPhone 5.
Getting the Right Gestures
It is also expected that some of the gestures of the iPhone can be revived and improved. In case of iPad a person can perform different kinds of gestures on the screen and they can even navigate with four fingers. This helps in a better control and the home button faces lesser wear and tear. But this facility is missing in case of the iPhone. The gesture is actually made difficult in the iPhone because of the size of the screen. In this case iPhone needs to provide a 4 inch screen to make things easy. This can help the users apply at least 3 finger gestures to perform multitasking on the screen.
