What is iOs?


Apple’s mobile devices run on the operating system known as iOS. It allows you to interact with your iphone, ipad and other gadgets.

Your phone’s lock screen and home screen is the iOS despite being filled with your favourite apps and other handy shortcuts. The operating system also controls the settings menu, where the device’s hardware settings can be adjusted to suit you, from choosing WiFi connection to brightening or dimming your screen.

Most importantly, the system allows you to download and run apps of your choice from the App Store. While you are enjoying your favourite apps, iOS is doing the leg work in managing your phone or tablet’s memory and the smooth running of features.
