The new iOS 5 represents an important step forward Apple has taken in terms of new features. The company has decided to integrate a wide array of improvements its operating system. Some of these features are not novelties since other rival operating systems have been offering them for some time now. But this is the first time Apple has made them available on its iOS.
The possibility to watch video content in the 1080p format is one of the new features brought by iOS 5. Some users have already managed to transfer 1080p films on their iPad 2 tablets and play the video content. Users who have tested the feature confirmed that films run seamlessly and added they noticed no lag. Of course, users need to convert films in the mp4 format accepted by Apple first, in order to transfer the video content on the iPad 2 via iTunes.
The iPad 2 is unable to smoothly run unconverted 1080p films using video players purchased from the AppStore. However, unconverted films do run better on the iPad 2 than on the iPad. Apple will definitely use the new processing power of the A5 chipset and let users watch films in the 1080p video format. If we are lucky and the company decides to use the same A5 chip in the iPhone 5, we may be able to watch 1080p video content on the iPhone as well.
With all these rumors and expectations, we could easily become disappointed by iPhone 5 launch. Somebody wants an 8MP camera, others want an increased size while a bunch only desires for an uber-fast kernel. The pressure on iPhone 5 launch grows bigger as the Android army now has an imposing general: Samsung Galaxy SII. Even if Apple didn’t intend to make a giant leap with their iPhone 5, now they are simply obliged to do so. Unless they want to step off the technology pedestal.
