iOS 5 tips and tricks videos

Which new features of iOS 5 do you think is the best? Which do you think didn’t get enough attention? Do you know of any that is not well known? I will try to feature some of the new features here, I am sure to miss some – so let me know which I missed out on.

Text expansion

This is potentially very nice to save time. We all have phrases that we write all the time, being able to make your own shortcut/abbreviation for them that will save you lots of time.

Custom alert tones and ring tones

With iOS 5 its finally possible to customize both ring tones and alert tones. Apple has included lots of fun alert tones and ring tones in iTunes, but you don’t have to shell out lots of money to use this new feature – you can create your own ringtones and alert tones.

Since alert tones can be ring tones, and vice versa. Its the same process to create an alert tone as it is for creating a ring tone.

Custom vibrations

You probably need to have your phone on silence once in a while, wouldn’t it be cool to know who calls before you take your phone up? With custom vibrations you can customize vibrations for important callers, so you don’t have to look at your phone to know if you need to excuse yourself to answer.

Where is the iPhone 5?

iPhone 5

The anticipated iPhone 5 has been expected to be released late summer 2011, today its the 20th of september and we still have not heard a word about any release date.

The rumors has been going that the iPhone 5 would be released in september, but that is not going to happen. New rumors now point to a release in the middle of october. For that to happen the announcement would have to happen very soon.

When do you think we will get to see the new iPhone 5? Or do you think the next update will be a speed update (such as the 3GS).
