21-Sep-12 Talking Apple Talk!

In Blog, Personal on September 21, 2012 at 5:44 pm

So Wednesday was the launch of IOS 6 and today the launch of the iPhone 5. Lets hope the launch today of the new device was much more successful then the launch of the OS, as this was poor in terms of Apple’s standards!

Hmm. Another money spinner for Apple!

To upgrade to IOS 6, you needed at least a couple of GB free, which seemed bizarre considering the upgrade itself was just over 500mb!

This meant for me that I needed to delete all my music off my iPod, as this was the only way to easily free up this much data! Thankfully I can sync this back from my iTunes account, but this is still a pain!

After doing this, I upgraded both my iPad and iPod to find that Siri was only available for the 4gs, 3D maps was only available for the iPad, Tom Tom maps looks crude and that the only difference I can see is the addition of some settings and a major change to reminders! Hardly earth shattering!

Actually that’s not completely true, the alarm function now works when plugged in to a power source! Apple should be embarrassed by what they have delivered here, as I consider it a joke!

This week, my daughter took delivery of her new Samsung Galaxy SII. Although the older model galaxy, I can see why people are moving allegiance, as voice features are built in, the contract is cheaper and its a funky phone! Is the tide finally turning?
