iPad 2 will ship with... which version of iOS?

Apple is widely expected to introduce iPad 2 sometime in the next few months and, if they follow the same yearly cycle they have for iPhone and iPod touch, ship it in April 2011 running iOS... what exactly? iOS 4.2 still? A new iOS 4.3? Last year iPad was unveiled running iOS 3.2 (then called iPhone OS 3.2). iPhone was running iOS 3.1, and iOS 3.2 looked similar yet at the same time as fresh and new as iPad itself. The same only bigger and in some ways, better. Background wallpaper and home screen rotation alone were enough to make it look new, as were sidebars in landscape and popovers in portrait mode.

Then iPhone got iOS 4 in June, not only closing the gap but with multitasking, folders, threaded email, and other new features, surpassing the iPad, which stayed trapped on iOS 3.2 until November, when iOS 4.2 finally unified the product line. If Apple sticks to pattern iOS 5 will be previewed around the same time as iPad 2 but won't launch until iPhone 5 does in June, 2011. So it seems like there are a three major options:

TiPb TV 11: What do we want for iPhone and iPad in 2011?

2010 is over, 2011 is upon us, and there's just a few things we want from Apple and Steve Jobs when it comes to iPhone and iPad next year. Hardware, software, features, services, as wonderful as our current devices are, there's still room for improvement and that's topic for this episode of our video show, TiPb TV!

Whether it's reducing the iPad bezel, adding one (or more!) cameras, or improving the memory, Rene and I expect a lot for iPad 2. Likewise I'm tired of the glass back on my iPhone already and want something sleeker, slimmer, and yes -- way more futuristic for iPhone 5. We also want, a Files app for iOS 5, and several things they could straight out steal from Jailbreak like BiteSMS, theming, and LockInfo.

Demanding enough? Hit the video above and watch along for more, then tell us what you want in the comments!

Dear Santa Jobs, all we want for iPhone 5 and iPad 2 is...?

If Steve Jobs were Santa and you were sitting down to write out your Christmas wish list for iPhone 5, iPad 2, and iOS 5, what would you ask for? Last year we got multitasking but the lack of notifications made us think we're still more naughty than nice. What about 2011?

If you heard a clatter and snuck down to Apple, and lo and behold you caught Santa Jobs with a bag full of features, and you had the chance to ask him for anything for iPad 2 or iPhone 5, what would it be?

Give us your list, TiPb community, and we'll check it twice!

iOS 5 wants: Game sync via Game Center

I'm playing Infinity Blade on my iPhone 4 but if I switch to my iPad I have to start the game over, fresh, as if I'd never played before -- it makes me hope Game Center in iOS 5 will sync my game state between devices so I can just pick up any of them and keep playing from where I was. Not just for Infinity Blade but for Angry Birds and Angry Birds HD and tons of other games. All of them, actually.

iOS 5 wants: App Store trials, upgrades, and subscriptions

While Apple's iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPad has improved in countless ways since its introduction in 2008 -- including the recent reversal of the cross-compiler ban and the publication of the app review guidelines -- several major problems persist for both develops and users, especially the lack of trial apps, paid upgrades, and subscriptions. While the mobile app ecosystem is the new frontier and arguments can be made about how closely guarded it needs to be, Apple is about to bring the App Store concept "Back to the Mac". That's an environment where developers and users are not only accustomed to, but expect features like trials and upgrades.

So while we're all still waiting on iOS 4.2, I'm going to leap ahead a little and start thinking about what I want in iOS 5. There's lots to cover, notifications, glance-able data, profiles, NFC, etc. Right now, I'm going to focus on the App Store, and whether Apple takes the opportunity to bring some of the Mac back to the iPhone and iPad.
