Apple to offer Over-The-Air Updates with IOS 5

Apple Gurus 9TO5Mac have reported that Apple will start using Over-The-Air (OTA) updates just like Android with the release of IOS 5. According to there sources Apple is working alongside Verizon and possibly other carriers to push the idea possibly for the release of IOS 5 that will be unveiled next month at WWDC 2011. This would be awesome as it would save us connecting to Itunes and downloading huge files for 1mb updates every other month. Here’s what 9TO5Mac have to say:

Multiple sources say the new feature will debut in iOS 5, meaning iOS 5 will not come over-the-air but following point updates to it will. Just like tethering in iOS 3, Apple has the technology but cannot just unleash it everywhere. Apple and Verizon Wireless are said to have been in talks over these wireless software updates since early this year. Sources could not comment on whether or not Apple is negotiating similar deals with AT&T or international iPhone carriers.

This would fall in line with the Apple TV which already receives OTA updates but how would we back our content up still through Itunes or possibly via there cloud? Anyway let us no what you think we think it’s long overdue.

BeginnersTech was an idea I had one Sunday when I was bored. It is now not only a website but a successful YouTube channel that takes me all over the world. Don’t ever let anyone discourage you. Chase those dreams.
