Is there an iPhone on your wish list this year? Most of us love getting our hands on the latest version. That might be possible in the upcoming new year. But do your homework and make sure the latest version really is the best model.
According to a recent pcworld.com article, Apple released iOS 5.1 beta to developers. The next-generation iPhone model, marked as iPhone 5,1, is included on the list of products possibly ready to release for purchase soon.
Here’s the expected changes noted in the article:
“The iPhone 4S has the 4,1 identifier in Apple’s code, so the jump from 4,1 to 5,1 indicates major internal changes are on the table, and possibly on the outside too, including a 4-inch screen that manufacturers have reportedly started making already.
The iOS 5.1 is meant to bring several bug fixes to users. Most of them relate to creating iCloud accounts or migrating from MobileMe, as well as security improvements. Apple did not mention whether the update would address the ongoing battery issues that some users are experiencing, even after the iOS 5.0.1 update that was meant to fix them."
The article cautions that some of the devices referenced in iOS betas in the past were never released, so don’t get your heart set on a new iPhone just yet.
And what about that cell phone you’re using now. Is it still in like-new condition? Or does it need a little work – maybe a repair to fix a cracked screen? This is a great time to have your current phone repaired at The Cellphone Doctor.
