iOS 5 features: iPad
1. Apple iOS 5: PC Free
OS 5 users can activate and set up their iOS device right out of the box and get software updates over the air with no computer required, and iOS software updates are delivered over the air and installed with just a tap.
2. Apple iOS 5: Built-in Twitter integration
A feature strongly tipped prior to its official announcement, iOS 5 will now let you sign in once and then tweet directly from all your Twitter-enabled apps, including Photos, Camera, Safari, YouTube and Maps with a single tap.
3. Apple iOS 5: Newsstand
A new way to purchase and organise your newspaper and magazine subscriptions. A new section of the App Store features just subscription titles, and allows users to quickly find the most popular newspapers and magazines in the world. If subscribed to, new issues appear in the Newsstand and are updated automatically in the background so you always have the latest issue and the most recent cover art.
4. Apple iOS 5: Wi-Fi Sync
A feature which some have suggested may have been inspired by an app rejected by Apple last year, now lets you sync you iPad, iPhone, or iPad to a Mac or PC through a shared Wi-Fi connection. Backing up new content, Wi-Fi Sync means you can access all your media where ever you want them.
