Vote now for iOS feature of the year [2011 TiPb Awards]

TiPb Awards: iOS feature of the year

iOS 5 is one of the biggest software updates Apple has ever released for their mobile operating system, with changes almost too many to enumerate (we've tried!).

Siri is the first step in taking the digital assistant out of sci-fi and into reality. iMessage bypasses the exorbitant carrier text charges and brings iOS users, all over the world, one step closer to BBM-like instant messaging. Notification Center finally brings iOS alerts out of the dark ages. Newsstand put most of our newspapers and magazines all in one place. PC-free along with Wi-Fi sync cuts the cord to iTunes and takes us to the iCloud, where all our data gets stored and pushed and backed up. Reminders brings task management to iOS. The camera app is now fast to access and faster to take shots with.

While there will always be features we wish for next time, from message previews to fast text response to themes to a whole lot more, this year, these are your choices.

Vote up top and tell us why you voted they way you did in the comments! These are your awards, so get to it!

iOS 5 has earthquake warnings for Japan

According to a 9to5Mac tipster, iOS 5 in Japan will include notifications from Japan's earthquake early warning system. It ties into iOS 5's Notification Center, and can be enabled and disabled just like any Notification Center section in Settings. Because it stays connected to Japan's nationwide online monitoring network, it will most likely lower battery life slightly, but given the importance of the system, that's likely a tradeoff anyone enabling it will be more than willing to make.

No word yet on whether any other earthquake-prone, or natural disaster-prone areas with early warning systems of their own will be able to likewise tie into Notification Center, though App Store apps can fill that gap where and as needed.
