I love how apple solutions are so elegant. The new iOS update is especially so.
It is obvious that the company has their focus on the user’s experience rather than just the fastest and best hardware. The validation of Apple’s plan is through the sheer number of products they have sold. When I think mobile phones, I think iPhone. When I think music players, I think iPods. There are plenty of other products out there but the experience has been so pleasant.
With the new software update to all mobile products (iPhones, iPods and iPads) Apple have really out done themselves. They have 200 new features but there are two or three which will I am really looking forward to.
1. Getting rid of wires.
- Backup data through WiFi
- Do not need a computer to set up products
- Transfer music, movies and photos
Wires clutter up your desk and can be lost.
- Allows free messaging between iDevices (aka WhatsApp)
- Group messaging as well
Makes the iPhone more exclusive. Much along the likes of their ad campaign: “If you don’t have an iPhone, you don’t have an iPhone.”
3. New notifications
- More details from lock and home screen
- Cleans up your screen
Encourages more use of iPhone and more apps to make use of this function.
I cannot wait for the release this Spring. While none of these features are new or world breaking, it is opening the eyes of many to the ability of modern technologies. The accessibility and ease of use of all iProducts will quicken the arrival of the future.
