Apple has added more than 200 features to its next major mobile software release, iOS 5, which has entered beta testing and is slated for general release in the fall of 2011. The company has introduced new applications, such as a notification centre, and spruced up mainstays such as the Safari web browser and Email.
Ever since iPhone users saw what Android was capable of when it comes to notification management, they've been wanting an upgrade. IOS 5 brings a central location to all of your iPhone's notifications for the first time. To access the notification centre, you swipe down from the top of the screen. The notifications that do show up are completely customisable by the user. New notifications appear briefly at the top of your screen, without interrupting what you're doing.
