Five awesome updates coming to your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Apple unveiled their new iOS 5 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch yesterday and although the new OS won’t be available until fall, there are some pretty amazing additions that bring iOS on par with other mobile operating systems like Android and BlackBerry OS. Although there are over 200 new features, we select five of our favorite ones.

1) iMessage

Considering the popularity of BBM in the region, this is probably the most awaited feature by iPhone fans and one that has BlackBerry users worried. Like the BlackBerry Messenger, iMessage will allow iPhone, iPad and even iPod touch users to send messages over WiFi or 3G. You will be able to send text, photos, videos, locations as well as contacts and like BBM, get delivery reports and read receipts. What is not supported yet is Group Chats.

    I hope the tabs are also available for iPhone. Microsoft has done pretty neat job to bring tab browsing in future updates of WP7.

    So they’re gonna blend the Peter Hajas’s Mobile Notifier with their own, If I were Peter Hajas I’d have sold the idea to Apple rather then getting myself hired in Apple…. A Slow income. Still I love Apple and the new features are going to be awesome.
