Apple Ipad Os
The Apple iOS 4.3 entered the market just a few days before the long awaited iPad 2 coming at a purchase price somewhere between $499-829. It came with a series of changes that didn’t improve the overall performance much, but they were welcome nonetheless. For example the AirPlay, now allows you to stream media to the Apple TV from the iPad. Safari claims speed improvements, while receiving several upgrades software-side such as the Home Sharing feat and the possible ways to use orientation lock. Despite the fact that it still doesn’t offer flash support, the iOS 4.3 still remains champion. Its closest opponent, the HoneyComb OS running on the Motorola Xoom is far fro walking in iOS’s footprints.
To install the 4.3 iOS is extremely simple, you just plug and play. All you need to do is launch iTunes and let the tablet sync after you’ve downloaded the update. The entire process shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes over a wired network.
When looking at the interface, the iOS 4.3 is very similar to the 4.2 iOS. It has the same user friendliness and the elegant application grid. Android might have tried but they are still falling behind the iOS since it’s not even close as polished. The limited number of HoneyComb OS applications takes their toll hard on the customer when compared to more than 65000 apps provided by Apple App Store.
A more subtle modification was made in response to user requests regarind the backlash that appeared when the rotation lock switch was muted back in iOS 4.2. Now you have an embedded series of preferences within the Settings department which makes it a really nice correction to the bug.
The Search department also had some modifications done to it. Clicking the Home button launches the Spotlight bar that allows you to find apps or other files that are transferred on your iPad. By simply typing “Wikipedia” in the Spotlight bar will launch the Safari browser and redirect you to the Wikipedia or Google browser. You can even add filters for your Spotlight to search. It can be set to find Applications, Music, Videos, Notes and other feats. The only restriction is that you cannot modify the default search engine which is Google.
Yet the most anticipated feat of the 4.3 iOS is the multitasking capability. This will make the iPad feel more like a computer, being able to run multiple apps at the same time without having memory fills and the necessity to close dow some apps.
