iOS 5 to get Twitter integration, OTA updates, and a new notification system, according to latest rumors
posted by Nick T. / Jun 06, 2011, 8:33 AM
Twitter notification, which looks pretty similar to the messages that you get when the wireless hotspot function is active. Even though we are not exactly Photoshop experts, the leaked image appears to be unaltered and this may very well be the way notifications and status updates are going to work in iOS 5.
The second image that we are dealing with is a screen grab from iTunes and hints that wireless software updates may come with iOS 5 in one form or another. Apparently, somebody was digging for app updates when they came across a page in iTunes that mentioned an Automatic Download function, which does not exist in iOS at this time. It appears that having the alleged iOS 5 function enabled will let you get software updates automatically, but some also suggest that it might be capable of updating your device's firmware as well. Even though the revealing line of text has been taken out by Apple already, others have also managed to snap a screenshot while it was still there, so it isn't very likely for the clue to be faked.
All rumors will be debunked shortly after WWDC takes off so stay tuned for our coverage. The event is scheduled to begin today at 10:00 AM PDT.

By the time you switch, Android will have innovated new must-have features that will take about a year for Apple to copy again. So in the end you will always be behind the curve with Apple.

True, apple has some good apps. However, most of the good ones are not free. But Android has apps that iOS would never support. Such as free mp3 downloading apps and zedge ringtones, wallpapers, notification sounds, etc. These apps would run the itunes store out of business. Plus, Android has the Amazon marketplace where you can get a paid app for free daily. A few days ago they had Plants vs. Zombies for free. Beat that Apple!

In other words, Apple is busily copying Android because they can't innovate on their own. . . just like how they copied Xerox and stole many other small companies ideas & IP. . . . and claim they invented it and their faithful will push that lunacy on the web forever. So. . . same old story.

in other words.. Apple is copying Android.. but yet, steve jobs is going to get on stage, and say since they have it.. they automatically invented it, and its "magical" because its on iphone. lol Google needs to find a reason to sue them to give them a taste of their own hippocritical medicine.

This will be a great day of trolling for you. You realized android uses a lot of things iPhone came out with first as well right? Pinch to zoom, webkit browser, app springboard as far as layout, app/market store. These are all things Apple was using before android phones were even available.
