The latest rumors say that iPhone 5 will be released this fall, in September, maybe October. The rumors multiplied after the appearance of the latest iOS’ beta versions last week. The 3rd beta version of iOS 5 has been revealed, so it becomes a fact that we are closer to the 5th iPhone generation.
Apple is again revolutionizing with the new iOS 5, with one of its new feature – “Assistive touch”. It seems that iPhones, iPads and iPods will no longer need any button with this improvement.

The report cites a ‘proven source’ that claims that AT&T’s retail arm has been communicating with its legions of employees,
“Assistive touch” is actually a menu that helps the user jump off the button pressing and, with just one finger tap, you can:
– rotate the screen
– lock the screen
– adjust volume
– go back to home menu
– open the multitasking bar
– simulate the shake of the device
– do custom movements and save them into different gestures for further fast utilization
– arrange the icons wherever you want on the screen.
A latest detail has to be mentioned – the brand new and free iCloud, which will come along with the new iOS5. It will have a storage capacity of 5GB (or more, if bought) and it will load / sync / share on other devices wirelessly: photos, music, documents, contacts, agenda – it goes PC-free! You will be also able to do back-ups and restores, media streaming or just use it for storage.
