“ iOS 5, the system currently powering Apple’s mobile devices, offers an easy-to-understand smartphone operating system to new users, a powerful platform for app developers, and a relatively un-fragmented experience across multiple devices. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about iOS is how similar the OS as it exists today is to the OS as it existed 2007, yet the number and breadth of features that Apple has baked in since then is mind boggling. Far from suffering from the “feature creep” that typically bogs down operating systems over time, iOS has managed to stay relatively snappy and is more internally consistent than anything else available today. And iOS 6 — launching on devices this fall — looks to evolve the story even further.”

After looking at this, it’s really easy to appreciate the strides Apple has taken to shift us away from the Simbian-esque operating systems of old, revolutionizing our interaction with mobile devices forever.
