Will My Old Apple Device Run iOS 7?

Apples new mobile operating system iOS 7 will be available this fall as a free update for Apple mobile devices. Of course, not all older Apple devices will be able to use iOS 7, but most of the newer ones will. Here is a list of the iOS 7 compatible devices. You will see that I’ve listed model numbers after the versions. If you don’t know what version of a product you have, just grab a magnifying glass and look at the back of the device for the model number.

  • iPhone 4, 4S, 5 or later. (A1349, A1332, A1387, A1428 and A1429).
  • iPad 2, iPad Retina or later, and all iPad Mini devices (A1395, A1396, A1397, A1416, A1430, A1403, A1458, A1459, A1432, A1454, A1455, and A1460).
  • iPod Touch 5th generation devices (A1421)

 

My Monkey – Griffin KaZoo iPhone Case

It’s whimsical. It’s cute. It’s usable. It’s protective. This is my everyday iPhone 5 cover. It is by far one of the best cases that I’ve used. I started using it because my iPhone looked  just like my husband’s Razr phone and we kept getting them mixed up. With the monkey, there is no confusion. There is no way he will pick up my phone by mistake.

I love the way the monkey makes me smile. It also makes others smile, as well, especially when I am taking pictures with my iPhone.

The case is made from a thick silicone material and all the controls are covered — one of his ears is the volume control. Dropping the phone is not much of a worry when the monkey is on. The only caveat is that the rubberized material makes it difficult to slide it into a pocket.

If that doesn’t bother you, get yourself a KaZoo and it is sure to make you smile! You can also get a blue elephant and similar cases for the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch.

Apple’s iOS 5 Goes Live – How to Update

If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that you would like to upgrade to IOS 5, you can do it now. Apple made the upgrade available about 1 pm (eastern) today.

Upgrading is easy. You can make it even easier by doing two preliminary preparations:

1. Download iTunes 10.5. This version just became available last night, so you probably don’t have it yet. To get it, start  iTunes, click on the About menu option, and click on Check for Updates. Then follow the on-screen directions to complete the update.

2. Update all of your applications.

Once that is done, you can proceed to the iOS 5 update:

1. Plug your iPhone (3GS or 4), iPad (original or iPad 2), or iPod touch (3rd or 4th generation) into your computer with the USB cord.

2. If iTunes doesn’t open automatically, launch it by clicking on the iTunes icon.

3. On the left side of the iTunes windows, find your device, for example, “Sandy’s iPad,” and click it.

4. Click on the button that says “Update.” Then follow the on-screen directions.

iOS 5 — Apple’s New OS — Update your iPad & iPhone Now

Along with Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 4S, came another very important announcement — iOS 5. This is Apple’s newest operating system. Although it will come preinstalled on the new iPhones when they are released on Oct. 14th, it will be available for other Apple devices tomorrow.

If you have an iPhone, iPad, our iPod touch, you won’t want to miss out on this. It promises to be a fantastic upgrade. And it is FREE!

iOS 5 will work on the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4. It will also work with 3rd and 4th generation iPod touches and both versions of the iPad.

Install it by hooking up your device to iTunes and checking for an update. Once installed you should see a new Notification area, Twitter integration, a new Reminder feature, and improvements to navigation, surfing, messaging, and picture taking.

Apple didn’t say exactly what time the update will be available, but I am going to try to be the first in line!

If you don’t want to be first in line, I understand. Check back here in a day or two for my take on how hard or easy the download was and how worthwhile iOS 5 really is before you download it.
