Apple® iOS® 5 MobileMe event

There has been news that Apple is going to hold an event to release the much awaited iOS 5 and an updated MobileMe. A German Web site claims that according to their reliable source, the iOS 5, the new mobile operating system and the new-look MobileMe will be unveiled at an event in early April. It is also being expected that MobileMe will become free syncing service. Presently MobileMe is offered as free trial for sixty days and after that Apple charges a small fee.

There has not been any news about the release of iOS 5 or iPhone 5 from Apple’s side. But people are expecting that the new mobile operating system will come with more advanced features so that it can give a tough fight to new Windows Phone 7. Now Windows Phone 7 has already been released and has got some very strong partners like Nokia with them. (Nokia has announced that it will be using Windows Phone 7 as their primary OS for smartphones.) So it can be easily understood that why people are waiting desperately to see what Apple’s iOS 5 is going to offer. As such Apple has announced for the launch of iPad 2 recently.

The website claimed through their partner website, that they have the knowledge of the event. They said that the event will be organised at the Apple campus in Cupertino, California during the 14th or 15th week of the year.

If you analyze this news, it cannot be alleged as rumor but it can be seen as an educated guess. If we recall, last year Apple announced and showed a preview of iOS 4 on April 8. It is very likely that Apple will try to keep its development schedule fairly stable. There are many products like iOS, iPhones, and iPads to be launched this year and therefore an early April preview of iOS 5 can be expected.

A lot has already been said about the features of the new and most advanced mobile operating system. And we are also desperate to know about some of the extraordinary features of iPhone 5 which will have iOS 5 as operating system. There was also a news that iPhone 5 is expected to be launched sometime this summer.

During the announcement of iPad 2, there wasn’t any news related to MobileMe, so it is also being expected by the people that a new version will be included with iOS launch. Now if we try to recall, Apple recently started offering Find My iPhone function of MobileMe at no cost for its iOS devices. So this fact is making many analysts to predict that Apple is not going to charge anything for syncing service.

Apple® iLife ’11

iLife ’11 is the latest version of consumer media suite from Apple. It is not just about one thing, it is rather a great combination of various applications. But this time only three of those much loved apps were updated for the latest 2011 version. The three included in the latest version are – iMovie, GarageBand and iPhoto. For the first time since the launch of App Store, these three applications would be made available as independent programs. Their cost would be $14.99. Exclusively for Mac, this package is absolutely free. Although the users of a similar suite from Microsoft, namely Windows Live Essentials, are enjoying such luxuries that run on Windows PCs for free. If you are not satisfied with three applications in Apple iLife ’11, you need to shell out some more dollars from your pocket and you will get iWeb site design software and iDVD by paying a price of $49. But in this what won’t be included is the online component, MobileMe, for which you have to shell out $99 every year.

In all recently purchased Mac systems, iLife ’11 suite is already installed.

The full-screen view and integration with Facebook gallery makes the gadget all the more lovable. That’s not all, you are now also able to sync the photo galleries with MobileMe galleries. iPhoto is capable of doing much more than just photo editing and organizing.

iMovie ’11 boasted of a combined timeline-storyboard editing view right from the time it was launched. And the ’11 version is a much better form of that original application. A brilliant feature is the Hollywood-style trailer creation. Now you can just drag the clips into a template clubbed to a soundtrack. Not only this, the application also lets you share it with ease on YouTube, Facebook, or MobileMe.

GarageBand ’11 is not just like the professional options life Ableton Live or Pro Tools. It doesn’t cost as high as other high-end apps. With a new feature added, namely Flex Time, it lets you improve the quality of the performances by either stretching or compressing waveforms to make a better combination with your tune. All the guitar lovers have a lot to look forward to with new virtual amps and stomp boxes that would give them more acoustic possibilities and effects.

With Apple iLife ’11, you will have a gadget full of fresh, fully-loaded content that will not only give you much more flexibility but also make your gadget all the more lovable.

All for one…but not for all?

Unfortunately, this beta will not be available for everyone. Apple said that the beta would only work with Mac OS X 10.6.4 installed. The reason for this is unknown, but may have to do with Apple wanting all its customers to upgrade to the newest edition of their Snow Leopard release. You will not be able to synchronize this application with Entourage. If you are a windows user, keep in mind that you cannot synchronize it with Microsoft Outlook yet. These two features are expected to be available in the near future.
