Think you know everything about iOS 5? Before you answer that question, you should know that there are a few hidden features you might not know about. The Camera app has a feature that allows you to take panoramic shots just by shifting your iDevice left or right.

Making mistakes is something we all do. I mean, we’re only human afterall. There’s been quite a few times I’ve been browsing the web and accidentally closed a tab in Firefox.

The floodgates are open today as the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 5, becomes available for iDevice owners. Users will be glad to see new features in iOS 5 like iMessage, Notification Center, Twitter integration, and more, but it seems Apple has left out one feature iPad users have been looking forward to since April: multi-touch gestures.
Indeed, multi-touch gestures will not be present in iOS 5 for first-generation iPad users, but lucky iPad 2 users will be getting the feature. Of course, we aren’t very happy about this, but we’ve figured out an easy way to enable multi-touch gestures on your first-generation iPad. Continue reading →
