What's New in iOS 5
iOS 5 might be the most popular version of Apple's mobile OS yet. When Apple released it as a digital download through iTunes on Oct. 12 the heavy demand almost crashed Apple's servers.
Available for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and all iPads, this update includes more than 200 enhancements for a reasonable price--it's free. This visual tour focuses on 11 major enhancements and four new apps introduced with iOS 5.
Cards is probably the least attractive of all the new apps Apple released with iOS 5. The way it melds digital and real-world services is unique--the cards you make are delivered by the post office. But it just doesn't have the same spit and polish as other Apple-branded apps.
