If you remember, some time ago when iOS 5 was revealed by Apple in the form of beta software for testing by developers before the final release we mentioned the fact that Apple has blocked the iOS 5 multi-touch gestures in original iPad 1 because this was always an experimental feature. We also mentioned a quick fix to enable the multi-tasking gestures on the iPad 1 if you are jailbroken on iPad 1 with the iOS 5. Now there are some reports that the same is also true for the final version of the iOS 5, and multi-tasking gestures are disabled on the iPad 1. Note that this not applies to the iPad 2 where they are still accessible on all its glory in iOS 5. For now, we are not sure that the method we mentioned some time ago still works for the final version of the iOS 5 that has been released recently. Can anybody confirm this?
For those that don’t know, Multi-touch gestures include the 4 or 5 finger gestures to return to the Home screen, swiping between the running apps or revealing the taskbar – all by using the 4 or 5 five finger gestures. In other words, they can be super convenient and most iPad users will agree with this. So if they are enabled you don’t need to use the Home button much on the iPad! We are really disappointed by this move from Apple in the same way as we were with their decision to disable the impressive Siri on the iPhone 4!
