Forget the iPhone 7, you don’t need a shiny new smartphone to make the most of Apple’s latest mobile delights. Many of them are software-based and have been added courtesy of iOS 10. Sure, if you’ve already splashed out on Apple’s latest handset you’ll get them out of the box, but if you’re sporting an ageing iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, it’s time to upgrade your existing device with the new ios 5 download
Not only does the iOS 5 download guarantee dozens of cool new features from a smarter Siri to a mass of new Messages options, unlike Apple’s latest smartphone offering, it won’t cost you a penny. Boom. Getting to grips with the latest patch doesn’t need to be a chore either. With these iOS 5 tips and tricks you’ll be a master in no time.
1. FIND PHOTOS USING FACES:
2. PLAY GAMES WITH FRIENDS DIRECTLY IN IMESSAGE:
Available from a separate sub-head in the App Store, these iMessage Apps and Games range from Chess and Connect 4 to the Candy Crush-styled Cobi Busters and the highly addictive Words With Friends. Once downloaded, hitting the App Store icon at the bottom of your iMessage window will let you launch a game, with your mate then prompted to downlad and play along. Warning, doing so may result in many lost hours.
3. SEND A WHATSAPP USING YOUR VOICE:
Now, instead of dictating your messages to the digital PA to be sent out as texts, Siri will let you read out your commands to messaging services that are still actually relevant. All you’ve got to do is make sure your version of WhatsApp is up to date then bust out the correct vocal commands: “Hey, Siri. Send a WhatsApp to Alice…”
4. FILL YOUR MESSAGES WITH HILARIOUS GIFS:
When you’re in the Messages app, tapping the new App Store icon will bring a pop-up of additional input options. Tapping ‘Images’ here will let you scour a comprehensive catalogue of stills and GIFs. Helping you find the perfect GIF without the leg work, there’s even a search box where you can drop keywords. Let the endless GIF back-and-forth commence.
5. SEE ONLY UNREAD EMAILS:
Now, when you open the Mail app, clicking the new icon in the bottom left corner – the one with three lines in a circle – will show only your unread email, filtering out the ones you’ve actually opened to give your a ready-made to-do list. Want to remain oblivious to the mound of unread emails? Simply tap the icon again and watch them once again disappear into the mix. Ah, bliss.
