iOS 5 Reminders Issue

One of the most useful elements of Apple's new iOS 5 is the Reminder app. However, within minutes of getting my 3GS updated and logging into iCloud I realised my Reminders app was useless. This isn't a judgment on the app it's because I couldn't create an item let alone actually be reminded of anything. Only the Completed list displayed and there was no little +.

If anyone else finds themselves in this position the fix is rather easy but strange. Navigate to iCloud under settings. If Reminder sync is off turn it on. Let it Sync up then head back to the Reminders app and everything should be ready to go. Strange bug but certainly a bug.

Steve Jobs Has Died

Goodbye Steve and thank you for all the memories

Predictions For Tomorrows iPhone Announcement

We are a only hours away from the launch of the new iPhone and iOS5. We already know most of the iOS features but what about the new iPhone? Well I'm predicting that we will see two iPhones tomorrow. The iPhone 4S will be a minor upgrade of the iPhone 4 with a a global chip, lower cost and most importantly a repaired antenna. The iPhone 5 will be the higher cost model with a design similar to the iPad 2, larger screen achieved by removing bezels, NFC, dual core processor and 1Gb of RAM. Tim Cooks final announcement will be the voice recognition and control system built into the iPhone 5.

I think we may also see Steve Jobs tomorrow for a very short time towards the end of the presentation. This will be a symbolic public handover and something of a goodbye to the Apple faithful.
