One of the most influential technological pageants of 2011 – Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2011 has opened yesterday. CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs made a keynote address introduced the main theme of this feast: Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud. Apple always makes the whole world to guess what it will do next. Now we finally get to know what new features iOS 5 really brings.

  • Toast Notifications

  • The first big change is Toast notification to bring more beautiful interface and better user experience. Apple has replaced the annoying pop up notice windows with a new app called “Notification Center”, located at the top of the screen as well as lock screen.

  • Twitter Integration

  • Apple has finally leaned down to cooperate with other companies to integrate Twitter into iOS 5. But compare to Windows Phone which has already integrated with Facebook, Twitter and LinKedin, we have to say Apple needs to do more work.

  • iMessage

  • Apple has unveiled this secretly kept iMessage yesterday which is quite awesome for users for it supports text, image, video, address list and more contents direct reading and real-time sending.

One thing in particular is iOS 5, the next operating system that will power iPhone 3GS and 4, iPod touch 3G and 4G, and iPad 1 and 2. Till now we didn’t receive any news about the announcement of any hardware like the hot rumored iPhone 4GS, so this WWDC 2011 is doomed to be incomplete with only software.
