VI.   References 17.  Page | 1 Introduction iOS (previously iPhone OS) is a mobile operating system developed and distributed by Apple Inc. Originally unveiled in 2007 for the iPhone, it has been extended to support other Apple devices such as the iPod Touch (September 2007), iPad (January 2010), iPad Mini (November 2012) and second-generation Apple TV (September 2010). Unlike Microsoft's Windows Phone and Google's Android, Apple does not license iOS for installation on non-Apple hardware. As of October 2013, Apple's App Store contained more than 1 million iOS applications, 500,000 of which were optimised for iPad. These apps have collectively been downloaded more than 60 billion times. It had a 21% share of the smartphone mobile operating system units shipped in the fourth quarter of 2012, behind Google's Android. At the half of 2012, there were 410 million devices activated. According to the special media event held by Apple on September 12, 2012, 400 million devices had been sold by June 2012. The user interface of iOS is based on the concept of direct manipulation, using multi-touch gestures. Interface control elements consist of sliders, switches, and buttons. Interaction with the OS includes gestures such as swipe, tap, pinch, and reverse pinch, all of which have specific definitions within the context of the iOS operating system and its multi-touch interface. Internal accelerometers are used by some applications to respond to shaking the device (one common result is the undo command) or rotating it in three dimensions (one common result is switching from portrait to landscape mode).

Image ©Apple Inc.  Page | 2 History of iOS The operating system was unveiled with the iPhone at the Macworld Conference & Expo, January 9, 2007, and released in June of that year. At first, Apple marketing literature did not specify a separate name for the operating system, stating simply that the iPhone runs OS X . Initially, third-party applications were not supported. Steve Jobs' reasoning was that developers could build web applications that would behave like native apps on the iPhone . On October 17, 2007, Apple announced that a native Software Development Kit (SDK) was under development and that they planned to put it in developers' hands in February . On March 6, 2008, Apple released the first beta, along with a new name for the operating system: iPhone OS . Apple had released the iPod Touch, which had most of the non-phone capabilities of the iPhone. Apple also sold more than one million iPhones during the 2007 holiday season. On January 27, 2010, Apple announced the iPad, featuring a larger screen than the iPhone and iPod Touch, and designed for web browsing, media consumption, and reading iBooks. In June 2010, Apple rebranded iPho ne OS as iOS”.   iOS 4.0 Homescreen: Image ©  Page | 3 Version History iPhoneOS 1.0  –  1.1.5 :- First version, released in 2007 with iPhone iPhoneOS 2.0  –  2.2.1 :- Released in 2008, new additions include  –  AppStore, VPN support, etc. iOS 3.0  –  3.1.3:- Renamed to iOS, launched along the first iPad in 2009. iOS 4.0  –  4.3.5:- Added new features like FaceTime, voice support, multitasking, etc. Launched with iPhone4, iPad2 & Apple TV in 2010. iOS 5.0  –  5.1:- Brought Apple’s voice assistant Siri, notifications center, NewsStand app & iCloud integration.

Look & Feel The home screen (rendered by and also known as SpringBoard ) displays application icons and a dock at the bottom of the screen where users can pin their most frequently used apps. The home screen appears whenever the user unlocks the device or presses the Home button (a physical button on the device) whilst in another app. The screen's background can be customized with other customizations available through jailbreaking. The screen has a status bar across the top to display data, such as time, battery level, and signal strength. The rest of the screen is devoted to the current application. When a passcode is set and a user switches on the device, the passcode must be entered at the Lock Screen before access to the Home Screen is granted. Before iOS 5, notifications were delivered in blue dialog box. This system of notification management was greatly criticised. In the iOS 5 update, the notifications feature was completely redesigned. Notifications collate in a window which can be dragged down from the top of the screen. If a user touches a received notification, the application that sent the notification will be opened. Notifications are now delivered in small banners that appear over the status bar. The old method of delivering notifications is still available from Notification Settings if the user wishes to enable it for some or all applications. When an app sends a notification whilst closed, a red badge will appear on its icon. This badge tells the
