When can you get iOS 5 on your device? This fall!

So when exactly will you get iOS 5 on your device? That's easy -- it'll be available this coming fall with a developer seed arriving today. And what devices will be capable of running iOS? That's another easy one as well. It'll support all the same devices as last time. For those of you who might not remember what they were last time:

  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPad
  • iPad 2
  • iPod touch (3rd and 4th gen)

No surprises there, everything is as was expected for iOS 5 releases. Now all we have to do is wait it out until fall rolls around.

Dear Android and BlackBerry users, what would iOS 5 need to win you over?

Apple will be announcing iOS 5 on Monday and if the rumors are to be believed it will do pretty much everything from notifications to make you a tasty vanilla latte (okay, not really.) But it does beg the question -- if you're an Android or BlackBerry user, or a Windows Phone, webOS, or fan of any other platform, what would Apple have to do to win you over to iPhone and iPad?

Apple hires MobileNotifier developer Peter Hajas

It looks like Apple has recently hired Peter Hajas, lead developer behind the popular iOS jailbreak tweak MobileNotifier, as an "iOS Apps & Frameworks" employee.

Hajas announced his departure from development on MobileNotifier in a blog post ending with a reference to Steve Jobs' closing remarks at his 2005 Stanford commencement speech saying "stay hungry and stay foolish". This tipped off iPhone Download Blog who speculated he may be heading to Apple, and sure enough he's been confirmed as an intern at their Cupertino headquarters.

Imagining iOS 5 [Updated]

Back on March 1, I tried to imagine what we'd see in iOS 5. Unlike preview years, however, there was no iOS 5 event in the spring. Instead, Apple will now be previewing iOS 5 in June, at WWDC 2011. As in this monday. So I'm revisiting my list, updating it with the latest news and rumors, and wondering what Apple could do that'll be big enough to make us forget the lack of a new iPhone introduction this time around.

So what will iOS 5 bring? We'll give you our want list, after the break.

Daily Tip: How to ditch the Facebook for iPhone app (and still get notifications)

Not a fan of the official Facebook for iPhone app, desperate for an alternative, but still need to get notifications? Join the club. I've never been a fan. Their cryptic "bug fix" updates never seem to improve anything and notifications are always so finicky. More often than not, I open my Facebook app to find several notifications that were never pushed to my iPhone. On top of that, the timeline can be choppy or jump randomly. And the whole "liking comments" just seems to decide on its own whether or not it's going to work that specific day.

If you feel the same way, hit the jump for some workarounds and alternative solutions to using the Facebook for iPhone application.
