Is This a Leaked Photo of iOS 5?

Posted by · 31863 views · Translate

TechCrunch has posted a photo that shows Twitter notifications integrated into the iOS status bar. The site is unsure if it's an authentic image; however, their sources say it's the "right idea".

Again, no clue if it’s actually real or not, but the idea might be right. Notifications that come down from the top bar could be how Apple ends up doing things in iOS 5. After all, this would mimic already existing functionality — when tethering, a blue strip appears along the top; when on the phone, it’s a green strip. Might notifications (or at least Twitter notifications) produce a gray strip?

Take a look at the photo below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Where do some of you get your information? A simple trip to you nearest AT&T, Verizon or T-Mobile store will show you crappy plastic Android phones that at full price cost just as much as an iPhone. Let\'s not forget that Google had to get rid of about 50 apps that were virus infested because of their \"open\" little ecosystem they USED to have. Android is no longer COMPLETELY \"open\" the apps get filtered just like the App Store does now. Apart from the few features Androids OS has tell me how it\'s a better and more stable OS than iOS. @Coose Apple invented the \"App Store\" for their own smart phone and was the first to do it, how can you say it was crap? I mean compared to what? Sprints old application store? What is this being based on? The \"App Store\" is a long ways ahead of Android and Windows application stores so why even bring up the old app store when Apples competitors have had years to make their stores up to par but are still light years behind. I\'ve used my brothers samsung captivate and htc hd7 and neither are anywhere near my iPhone 4. yea, there may be features here and there like a dedicated camera button but I don\'t want my phone with extra crap like that because this is a smart phone not a actual camera. So I\'ll live through the fact there\'ll be no physical \'button\' for the camera. Everything OS feature-wise that Android and Windows phones can do iPhones can do jailbroken and more. I don\'t even know how Android keeps coming up because WP7 is way better than Android by miles, I still would never ditch my iPhone for one but it\'s def a very strong second; I would recommend it to people but not Android. iOS is capable of doing waaaay too much for me to switch.

It\'s almost certainly fake. Look at the screenshots given in wwdc. The new notifications system doesn\'t look like that.

lol, a minor tweak is what iOS5 is gonna be about?!?! Apple seems to be losing steam here. They need to be more innovative than this to keep on top. I suppose the brain washed group that swears by Apple no matter what the argument is will always buy in to their products. I twitter that important to people? I would thing there are more valuable things iOS could be doing, like fixing and improving general user experience. Maybe Apple should copy some of the Android os as that seems to be miles ahead in functionality. I kinda regret upgrading to the iPhone4 now that I\'m seeing the Androids are getting better everyday.I\'m really starting to get tired of Apple software/OS. they have great hardware though (only if you like to never be able to update a part or do your own repairs that is). I know some Apple drone will jump all over me and I\'ll never come back to read it. Let me say this to the ones thinking about replying :: Do you honestly think that your comment is non-biased? Do you also believe that you are not brain washed in to the Apple Cult? That\'s how cults work, you don\'t know how bad it is or how deep you are until it\'s too late.

You are really a moron. Apple have the best user interface and I would never go for android. There is nothing that android have more than apple software ! Apple is the leader and thats it .

See what I mean. Have you ever tried the newest Android? Not sure how long you\'ve used Apple, but their phones were terrible until about 2-3 years ago, the app store was BRUTAL and the OSx is terrible. I\'m not saying there\'s something better out there right now, but I bet there will be soon. Get the Apple dick out of your mouth and think before you speak
