The most expected event of March occurred at San Francisco, launching the latest version of the iPad and can be purchased for $499 coming with an outstanding Retina Display and A5X processor with quad-core graphics. Because it’s the new iPad’s time to be first in line, the iPad 2 has dropped the price at $399, also coming with a few updates, such as movie support for iCloud.
So, iOS 5.1 will embrace the iPhone, iPod and iPad with its new updates, also providing voice dictation support for Siri. Siri has been chuckling over success from October on the iPhone 4S and now it’s available on the latest version of the iPad. Indeed, it’s not full-featured as on the iPhone but it offers voice dictation support, coming along with languages such as the existing ones (American English, British, Australian English, French and German) and Japanese thanks to the new update. To conclude, the Siri feature on iPad will allow users to experience social networking, namely create tweets and Facebook status updates, write emails, send texts, navigate on the Internet and make notes with the tone of your voice.
When it comes to battery life, TechCrunch states:
iOS 5.1 is also supposed to hold the promise of enhanced battery life, but iPhone 4S users have been holding their breath on that one for awhile now, so that remains to be seen.
