iOS 5: software updates will now be delivered OTA (over-the-air)

iOS 5: software updates will now be delivered OTA (over-the-air)

It looks as though Apple has decided to take all future software updates wireless and Apple will now stream all iOS updates over the air (OTA). This could be a great thing for folks who don't want to depend on a computer to have to update their devices and even better if iCloud ends up bringing iTunes to you wirelessly.

Apple is "cutting the cord," according to Forstall. New menus and a new Welcome screen will also be implemented into iOS 5 as well.

Are you excited about Apple cutting the cord on software updates or a little wary? How do you think this will effect the future of jailbreak?

Safari gets tabbed browsing, Safari Reader and Reading List in iOS 5

Safari gets tabbed browsing, Safari Reader and Reading List in iOS 5

Safari is getting a huge update with iOS 5, which will include a new Reading List for later reading of interesting articles, tabbed browsing (finally!) and Safari Reader for a distraction-free view of the webpage or article you're reading.

Reading List is a huge addition, letting users save an interesting article for later, much akin to Read It Later or Instapaper. Just tap the Reading List button and you're presented with all the articles you've recently saved.

Tabbed browsing is just how you'd expect it to be in Safari, with a look and feel the same as Safari on Mac OS X. This is a much-welcomed addition.

iOS 5 to include 'Newsstand' for magazines and newspaper

iOS 5 to include 'Newsstand' for magazines and newspaper

Scott Forstall just announced on stage at WWDC a new iOS 5 feature called Newsstand, which integrates newspapers and digital magazines onto the iOS homescreen.

The app resides on the springboard but behaves much like iOS folders. Tap the app and you're presented with a thumbnail view of each magazine or newspaper you're subscribed to directly from the homescreen. All downloaded subscriptions are stored on the device for offline viewing. Newspapers look just like paper newspapers, and magazines look and behave like a real magazine.

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.
