See that image? Tech Crunch published this supposed photo which allegedly depicts a rumored new iOS 5 notification system. Tech Crunch heard it’s the “right idea”. Even though it’s probably a fake, we nevertheless love it. Displaying notifications in a subtle transparent layer right below the top iOS status bar does make sense. That’s where, for example, you might be notified of your Twitter mentions. Tapping the notification would presumably either reveal the notification screen with more information or launch the corresponding app. Twitter, as you know, is said to be built right inside the bowels of iOS 5, possibly alongside Facebook and/or other popular social networks. Also cool: A new camera icon.
