New iOS 5 Image Surfaces – Twitter Integration, Revamped Notifications

Screenshot of an iPhone running on latest build of iOS 5 has been leaked in the wild. According to MG Siegler the screenshot is supposedly a leaked version of upcoming iOS 5 showing deep twitter integration with revamped notifications. You can clearly see:

  • Top line indicating new-style Twitter notifications.
  • The Camera app icon is totally different, and looks a little odd being all-black.

Could it be? Is this it? iOS 5?! I honestly have absolutely no clue. But it certainly seems like it at least could have the right idea.

Before you go yelling “fake” on the obvious things, a couple notes. First of all, yes, 11:54 PM is in the future – in the United States. But if the Weather app is to be believed, this is clearly a European version of iOS (note the 23 degree Celsius in the icon instead of 72 degree Fahrenheit as you would see in the U.S.). Second, the Camera app icon is totally different, and looks a little odd being all-black, but who knows, maybe it’s changing. The icons are in the “correct” default order. Finally, if the talk of deep Twitter integration into iOS 5 is to be believed (we heard a bit, others have heard a bit more), it’s entirely possible that these new-style Twitter notifications could be working in iOS 5 right out of the box.

In the Utilities folder next to the iTunes Store, another app right below Calculator can be noticed. If the image is legitimate, iOS 5 could come with the old iOS 4 default wallpaper with a revamped camera icon.

Whether this is legit, we don’t know, but I’m pretty sure this could be easily spoofed by anyone. But if the track record has been pretty good and the information pretty solid I think these guys deserve at least the benefit of the doubt no? Hopefully we’ll get to know the real picture when Steve Jobs will kick off WWDC 2011 with an official keynote. BTW, did you saw exclusive ideo of iOS 5 running on iPad? Via [Techrunch]
