Apple has started preparing Moscone West Conference Center, SF for its WWDC conference, when Jobs is expected to launch the new iOS 5 and iCloud on June 6. Apple will set the new mobile software bar for Android? :D
Here are the rumors flying around:
Along with iOS 5.0 and iCloud, Apple will also released Mac OS Lion that it previewed last year.
Mobile Notifier for (jail broken) iOS
What to expect at WWDC?

Apple isn’t setting the new bar for mobile software. In fact, I’m appalled at that fact that Apple is a copy cat. What happen to Apple being innovative? Apple added the wallpaper concept with the last iOS update, so now with iOS 5 they decide to finally add widgets and notifications? They mind as well throw in the desktop concept and iOS and Android will just be the same!
I’m sure all the fanboys are ecstatic about the new features with iOS 5, but it’s old news for us Android folks.
1. Music Beta: Google has released music beta by invitation only. Music beta allows for you to upload all your music to the cloud and listen to it with any device; laptop, tablet or phone. Whenever a new play list is created it automatically syncs it to your devices. Also, there’s even an offline mode to allow for you to listen to recent music that’s been played on your device in the absence of internet.
2. Free Music Beta: Right now, this service is offered free of charge.
3. Twitter and Facebook Integration: Wow, we’re now in 2011 and after all the iOS releases Apple is just now introducing this? Us Android folks have been taking pictures, hitting the menu button and sharing to our hearts content!
4. Notifications: AppleGirl, I’m not thrilled about this, Apple pretty much ripped of Android’s notification system! We’ve had this feature since day one :) I can’t wait to see the final product, if it’s like the jail broken version it isn’t as nicely integrated as the Android notification drawer.
5. Hardware & OS issues: This is an issue for Android users as well so I leave this one alone :)
6. Automatic app update: Again, nothing new over here, automatic Market updates has been available since the last Market app update.
7. Voice Recognition: Hmm, has speech recognition never been big on the iPhone because it doesn’t work well ;)? I’ve been using the speech to text feature for quite some time now and I have to say it’s awesome! Again nothing new over on this side!
If those are all the new features of iOS 5, it sure looks like Android is setting the bar! All you fanboys, just jump on the Android bandwagon already. You’ll be much happier on this side of the fence :)
