IPhone 4S unboxing 17-10-11

The welcome screen on the iPhone 4S.


Welcome screen for iOS 7

PC Free

Setting Up New Device

PC Free was introduced in iOS 5. Rather then forcing the user to set up a iOS device by connecting it to a computer and syncing with iTunes, it allows you to enter an iCloud login and restore from a backup or set it up as a new device without iTunes, because the syncing is done over iCloud.


  • New Welcome screen when you start using the device for the 1st time
  • iTunes/USB no longer required to activate devices
  • Ability to synch wirelessly to iTunes
  • Ability to update software directly on the device without needing to tether it to iTunes.


  • iPhone (3GS and later)
  • iPod Touch (3rd generation and later)
  • iPad (all generations)
