iOS 5 revamps iOS notifications

It looks as if the Apple Gods have answered some of our notification gripes. iOS 5 will bring with it revamped notifications. It looks as if there's a reason Apple hired Peter Hajas as it looks a heck of a lot like MobileNotifier. I've had revamped notifications in my jailbreak to stock want list for a long while.

WWDC 2011 by the numbers: 25 million iPads, 450K apps, 90K iPad apps, $2.5 billion to devs,

We're covering WWDC 2011 live! And along with WWDC always comes facts and figures. Here's an interesting one - Apple has sold over 25 million iPads in the past 14 months. This figure includes the original iPad and the iPad 2.

Developers have created over 90,000 applications just for iPad since its initial launch. And with it came over $2.5B in money paid out to developers. Yes, we said that right, billions.

This obviously includes all iOS platforms (iPad, iPhone, iPod). For many light users, the iPad has succeeded in replacing their personal computer.

Apple announces iOS 5: 1500 new API for developers, 200 new features for users - Beta today, release this fall

Apple senior VP of iOS, Scott Forstall, just announced iOS 5 and it comes with 1500 new API for developers and 200 new features for users -- including notifications, lock screen info, Newstand, Twitter, and more!

  • Notifications: Looks a lot like LockInfo, aggregates all notifications and you swipe down from the top to get them. They're non-obtrusive. Fade in to alert, then fade out and you can get back to them any time.

  • Lock Screen info: Looks like MobileNotifier (which is probably why they had to hire Haas). Swipe to go to voice mail, SMS to go to conversation view, etc.

Secret Banners at WWDC, One More Thing?

With just minutes to go before the keynote at WWDC, reports are showing that there are 2 massive banners covered with black cloths.

There are 3 confirmed banners on display at WWDC, displaying the much-anticipated iCloud logo, iOS5 and OSX Lion, but what are under these black cloths?

Could this be a 'one more thing' at the end of the presentation? iPhone 4S? iPhone 5? Something More?

Don't forget to join our live meta-blog, where we'll find out exactly what is under those sheets.

iOS 5 to have BBM style message integration, better notifications, widgets, and more?

iOS 5 to have BBM style message integration, better notifications, widgets, and more?

It's that time of year again and WWDC 2011 is upon us. We have our iOS want list up and if This Is My Next actually does have a credible source, we may be able to check off quite a few things.

Here's a list of changes from their source:

  • Messaging - The word is that Apple is readying its own MMS / SMS protocol which will be a native part of the phone. We’re not entirely clear on how this would work, but apparently it will be able to automatically identify iOS users and route the message accordingly.

Is this a screen shot of an iPhone running iOS 5?

Is this a screen shot of an iPhone running iOS 5?

TechCrunch has got its hands on a picture that may well be from an iPhone running iOS 5. The picture shows a notification bar at the top of the screen, under the time. The notification bar shows two new twitter mentions. Now this could very well be a fake; based on previous information that Twitter may be baked into iOS 5. We don’t know and neither does TechCrunch at this stage.
