Apple iOS 5.0.1 Beta Just Released


The Apple iOS 5.0.1 Beta has recently been introduced. It’s the updated version of the previous iOS platform which is said to remove all the flaws that the previous version had in it. The main purpose behind the update is to improve the battery draining issues that iPhone users were having, as recently reported by some users of the iPhone 4S.

This version is up for download now. Other than the battery issues this new version is said to eradicate, some other issues for example will also be taken cared of:

  • Synchronizing issues will be solved for iCloud
  • Voice recognition will be improved for SIRI
  • Security issues related to iPad2 will also be handled

This updated version will solve all the above issues that the previous version had. The SIRI feature had a problem recognizing commands for Australian users; thus, a new dictionary has been introduced in this updated version specially for Australian users.

The previous version also had some security issues which are now removed in the upgraded version. This security issue was found with iPad2 where anyone with a Smartcover can open the pass-code protected iPad and run the last application which was used but now it is said to be removed.

This Apple iOS 5.0.1 beta version has promised to remove the flaws but only time will tell whether it stands up to it’s ability.

Siri Like Application For Android – Iris App


Android has just launched a new app in competition to the Apple SIRI feature. The name of the Android application is iris app, reverse of SIRI. The developers at Android developed this app just after 8 hours of launch of the iPhone 4s. Android has always given a tough competition to Apple. This app is now available for everyone on the Android market.

At first no one thought that it could perform like SIRI but the iris app has really amazed it’s users with it’s features. This app is still in the alpha stage and will be updated regularly as SIRI gets updated too. Though it does not completely have all the features of the SIRI app, it’s still quite impressive. If you ask IRIS “WHO ARE YOU?,” it will answer ” I was created by Dextera, a young fledgling technology company based in India.”  Not only can it make phone calls and many other tasks that SIRI performs.
