    Scott Forstall has just taken the WWDC 2011 stage and details about the changes and improvements in iOS 5 are flowing thick and fast.

    We've now put together the full list of highlights from the WWDC presentation, which you'll find after the break. iOS 5 will be made available this fall, with compatibility promised for the iPhone 4 and 3GS, iPad 1 and 2, and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation. [/p]

    I guess this is an more of a social networking update for iOS

    Ipod Touch 3 and 3GS is a huge surprise (I said in a previous thread that they might drop them).

    I just hope they have optimized their os to use the GPU mainly (the same in all current idevice SGX535 apart from Ipad2), I don't want an iphone 3G on IOS4 fiasco again.

    Otherwise, new features are awesome especially twitter integration.

    Wow, sounds like all the features that I have on my jailbroken iPhone are now becoming standard.

    Took them long enough.

    I see. Good to know that it will work on the 3GS and 3rd gen iPod touch [​IMG]!
    Of course iOS 5 will support the newer iPhone [​IMG]!

    This is pretty logical finally, so far every Idevice had two major IOS upgrade:
    -1st gen got IOS2 and 3 (Last one was 3.1.3)
    -2nd got IOS3 and 4 (last one 4.2.1)
    -3rd will now have IOS4 and 5.

    And finally a little bet:
    Final firmware for the iPod touch 3 and 3GS will be IOS 5.3.X.

    Looks good, but I hope they'll add even more stuff, since there's quite a bit of time 'till fall.

    Let's see what I already have from this list...

    Overhaul of Notifications - Yup. In fact, I believe that the guy that made MobileNotifier (the notification tool that I'm using) is working for Apple now.
    Twitter Integration - I don't have this tweak, but it's on the Cydia Store. Somewhere.
    Safari Reader - Just a dummed down version of Ad-Blocker and TextReader, I guess.
    Reminders - LockInfo and MobileNotifier, again.
    Physical Camera Button - Activator for the Cydia Store does this too, along with SnapTap on the Cydia Store.
    Split Keyboard - Keyboard Tweaks. Cydia.
    Computer Free Syncing - Wi-Fi Sync. 'Nuff said.
    iMessage - Glorified biteSMS? On the... you know the drill.
    iCloud - Huh. The only thing that Cydia doesn't have... I think.

    Now the only thing that makes me want to JB my iphone is sbsettings.

    If Apple had added a gesture to be able to toggle on and off functions (3G/bluetooth/gps) and turn off/lock the phone without pressing any buttons, I'll quit jailbreak.

    (And also something to change user agent because it's annoying that some site offer only their hyper limited mobile version when your iphone is 1000% capable of browsing smoothly the full desktop version.)

    I'm quite pissed that I as a 2G user just have access to 4.2.1 and not 4.3 [​IMG]

    Really? I think that Winterboard and LockInfo are also great reasons to stay JB'd.

    Are there not browsers in the official App Store that change the user agent? I'm sure they aren't as good as Safari in most cases, but I think they exist...

    And SBSettings seems to be one of the few things Apple hasn't added officially yet. Maybe next update. All iOS updates are basically more polished versions (well, in some cases more polished. in others pretty similar) or jailbreak tweaks.

    Well, it is pretty old....

    Anyway, I am excited for this.

    But not that I have to wait until August to use it. And not happy that it officially comes in Fall, since I kinda want to use it now. Anyway, *waits for Apple dev center to go online*

    You want to use it now? Well the majority of the update is stuff that was already possible via jailbreak. So you can get most of the features now, albeit perhaps very slightly less polished/integrated.

    what they didnt say and would be the most interesting thing is jailbreak on iOS5. Are apple gonna up the security measures. true its gonna be hacked but let the online checks (DRM) put a stop to app store purchases or installing new apps.
    whatever i said, i feel everything is counterable.

    for iCloud, i think dropbox comes quite close to it
