    I tried an earlier beta and was annoyed you couldn't be alerted you have an email without having the email displayed on the screen. You can have message alerts appear on the lockscreen with just the sender and no message info... shame you can't do this with emails or has that been changed?

    In iOS5 betas you can turn off previews, so non of the message contents show up. Lots of new options in General -> Notifications.

    Notification center is irrelevant IMO, i someone has bypassed your passcode, hy could just open the mail app itself if they wanted.

    Is notification center polished? Or does it feel sloppy?

    Sweet! :D

    What about the option to view the photo roll from the lock screen (via the camera), without unlocking? I'm not too keen on people being able to pick my phone up off my desk or if lost and being able to view my pictures without unlocking.

    How could they bypass my passcode without knowing it? I'm talking casual people here, not some hacker.

    What he's saying is that if someone has access to the Notification Center there is no point in disabling previews since he has access to Mail too.

    That is not completely true though, since we are also talking about the notifications, not only the Center itself.

    There is no such option. It's even demoed in the keynote, camera app from lockscreen shows blank camera roll.

    Then only shows pictures taken during that lockscreen photo session.

    Several options.

    In General -> Nofitications -> Mail.app

    Notification Center ON/OFF
    Show 1/5/10 Unread items

    Alert Style: none/banner/old-school ios4 alert

    Badge App Icon ON/OFF - I think this toggle use of graphical app icon in banners and notifications?

    Show Preview ON/OFF - Kills the preview text for both notifications and lock screen, but not notification center (see above for that)

    View in Lockscreen ON/OFF

    Fully customizable.

    Ah I see. Sorry I should have said I was talking about the lockscreen, not the pull down.

    That makes sense. That's all my worries gone then. I can't wait for GM.
