  1. Здравствуйте.
    Хотел бы узнать по поводу новой iOS 5.
    Можно ли будет отключить не которые функции как Tweeter?
    Если смотреть по видео то устройству под управлением новой системы постоянно нужно подключение к интернету.
    Если это так, то можно как то без постоянного интернета обходиться?
    Заранее спасибо.

    Видел меню, как вместо Твиттера поставить что-то другое, отменить вообще не видел, но, думаю, можно будет.
