iPhone 5 AirSync, this is one of the features that has been available in Microsoft’s Zune which has been promised by Steve Job’s for quite a while, the AirSync feature has not surfaced yet. However speculation is mounting that it will be found on the iPhone 5 and iPad 2 with iOS 5.
So what is iPhone 5 AirSync and how will it improve your iPhone experience?
iPhone 5 AirSync will allow the syncing of Files, Music, Movies, Apps, Games, Email/Calendar with a user’s PC or Mac (via iTunes) over the air.
Imagine being on the road and being able to sync the latest files from the office, or when at home syncing or even live streaming off your media server.
There are applications that presently provide parts of the functionality however these features are not full featured that is these applications only Live/AirSync a specific feature. For instace take a look at AirVideo, GoodReader or Dropbox they each have to be installed separately and in some cases require their own server software installed on your PC or MAC. If an AirSync solution was added to iOS 5 (iPhone 5, future iOS update for iPad 2) this functionality would be integrated into iTunes without the need to purchase or install additional products.
Why does the team here at Apple Newz believe this feature is coming to the iPhone 5?
• Firstly Steve Jobs indicated this feature would be included very soon
• An application was recently rejected by the AppStore that would have provided this functionality
• Other devices already have this feature, so it’s something Apple need to do ASAP to avoid losing market share
Some industry analysts are predicting this feature will be available in iOS 4.3 however we believe this is a major update the likes of which is suited to product refresh such as the iPhone 5/iOS 5, it is also the type of feature that would both encourage more users to purchase a new iPhone as well as existing iPhone users to upgrade to an iPhone 5, which is why we are betting on an iPhone 5
