iOS 5 Countdown: Day 33- iTech Event

Hey guys, todays post will be about iOS 5 Beta 6, which is due to be released either on the 17 or 18 of August, BUT it may be delayed if bugs are found.

In the last update (beta 5), Apple introduced hearing aid mode to cater for users with hearing aids. Apple also introduced custom vibration modes for the iPhone. In beta 6, we would expect Apple to build on this and add some more of the features they have promised.

In terms of bug-fixing, beta-testers haven't complained much, but Notification center needs a bit of touching up.

Soon Apple is aiming to move away from the iDevice-->Computer link and make iDevices freer and release them from having to have a Computer to use an iPod/iPhone/iPad, and this will be reinforced with beta 6.


  1. What do you mean by IOS ?
    What does it stand for ?

  2. 'iOS' refers to the operating system on Apple's Mobile devices. It isn't much of an acronym, but the OS stands for 'operating system'
