What's New in iOS 5: Key Features

Apple senior vice president Scott Forstall unveiled the first look at the iOS 5 at the Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday. Forstall covered 10 of the 200 promised new features for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, all iPads, and iPod Touch.

Deep Twitter Integration

iOS 5 will now feature single sign-on support for Twitter, allowing owners to use the social media network without leaving an application. Third-party Twitter clients will be able to access your login details, and you'll able to tweet directly from YouTube, Safari, and Maps.

Notifications

According to Macworld, Forstall's announcement that iOS 5 includes a notifications upgrade "brought an uproarious cheer from the developers in attendance." The Notifications Center is a centralized point for all your notifications, and like Android devices can be accessed with a single swipe of your finger. Doing so will show you missed calls, voicemails, text messages and push notifications in one centralized location, instead of the old system of pop-up menus.
