As the keynote of Apple’s WWDC 2011 goes on, after a demo of the new Mac OS X Lion, its now time for the new mobile OS version, iOS 5. Good and interesting features have been added to the new version and it will be made available this fall as OTA updates to the iPhone 4 and 3GS, iPad 1 and 2, and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation.

During the demo of the new iOS version 5, the flowing features have been briefed:
