The official release of iOS 5 is now a fact. The software was made available to all users of iPad, iPhone and iPod touch on 12th October 2011. Now you can download it for free to update your Apple device. If you get a new product, the software will be integrated in it. Thanks to the new Calendar and Reminder features, your life will be much better organized.
The Calendar of iOS 5 is more functional than ever before. If you use an iPad you can get a year view of the calendar on the screen. If you are a user of iPhone or iPod touch, you will get your weekly calendar on display.
Creating events is super easy and quick. Scheduling is made easier and more productive. Now you can schedule events just by dragging the created note and dropping it. Given that you can have a weekly or yearly view of the calendar, you can readily get organized for days and even months ahead.
Another cool feature is that you can set the duration of the event as well. That way, you will get organized even better. You do not have to worry about missing an appointment just because the previous one took too long.
When you create an event, the new iOS 5 software, allows you to have an attachment that is pretty large. More importantly, you can view the attachment directly while using the Calendar app. You do not have to leave it.
In general, you can manage the calendars in any way you want. You can add information, rename them and delete them. Thanks to the iCloud technology, the calendars are automatically synced throughout all of your Apple devices using iOS 5 and your Mac and/or PC. This technology makes it possible for you to share the calendars with others as well.
You can readily create as many alerts with the new Reminders app as you wish. You can set these in to-do lists to get perfectly organized. The reminders can be extremely detailed and can contain due times and dates and locations. This means that you can get alerts by time and by location. Imagine getting an alert to call your boss as you enter the office building of your company.
The iCloud technology is integrated into the Reminders app so you get all of your reminders synced across the devices that you are using. That way, you can create an alert message on one device and check it out on another. This offers great convenience and certainty.
