The blogosphere and news media have been abuzz recently with news that Apple may not meet its traditional product release dates for the iPhone 5 and the accompanying iOS 5, which is their mobile operating system. Several theories are abound as to why Apple may be switching up their usually structured release schedule ranging from supply problems in Japan to time constraints of their supposedly feature ladened updates to a shift in product release strategy. As a consumer waiting anxiously for the new iPhone I can tell you that being given a date range of somewhere between April and October (the last time frame to adequately take advantage of the holiday shopping season) is maddening.
The delays aside, the wait will probably be well worth it but that doesn’t mean I can’t keep from dreaming of its features. AppleInsider, a leading Apple news blog, has been reporting that iOS 5 will most likely feature a free cloud storage and sharing service and more integrated voice commands, among other as of yet unknown features.
I think the wait will be worth it, for sure, but we want to know what you think: Will the extended wait for the new iPhone releases be worth it or will the Android OS maintain its current edge?
