As expected, Apple finally revealed the lasted version of iOS yesterday at the 2011 Worldwide Developers Conference. iOS 5 is expected to release this fall with 200 new features, including a brand new notification system, free messaging between iDevices, Twitter integration, a built-in to-do list and more.
In addition, iOS 5 will come with iCloud integrations, allowing users to store contacts, mails, calendars, photos and music in the cloud and syncing between devices.
Notification CenterIn iOS 5, Apple has decided to rebuild their notification system, which will be similar to the one on Android OS. The notification center holds new emails, text messages, friend requests, all in one place. To access it, you have to swipe down from the top of any screen.
iMessageA cool new feature for iOS 5 is a new service called iMessage, which lets users send unlimited text messages, photos, videos, locations and contacts via WiFi and 3G between iDevices. iMessage is built into the Messages app and it also allows users to on one iOS device and pick up where you left off on another.
Twitter IntegrationThe new iOS includes built-in Twitter integration, allowing users to sign in once and then tweet directly from all Twitter-enabled apps found on the device, including Photos, Safari and YouTube.
The new iOS 5 will be available starting this fall on the iPhone 3GS and 4, iPod Touch 3 and 4 and iPad and iPad 2.
