    Do you think there will be new unannounced features in iOS5 final or have we wait for 5.x?

    There might be some you don't know about but to put a new feature in and not let developers know about the API in advance is kind of dumb.

    What's the point of beta's if you add extra features in after?

    Well, developers did find a hidden "mic" button on the iOS keyboard layout for messaging, suggesting that voice control is in there somewhere, but other than that I don't see any major features being added now.

    Usually if they add new features in during the beta, it's when the release the GM seed at an event. The new features usually have something to do with new hardware. Otherwise, current features can be slightly tweaked and are too trivial to mention.

    So devs can get their apps up and running on it.

    Can you give an example in the past of such a feature?

    FaceTime wasn't in any of the iOS 4 betas.

    I'm pretty sure nuance speech will be added. The only question is if it will be in iOS 5 or just in the iPhone 5, making it one of things that will make you want to upgrade. Also I was hopping for a better Maps app but I don't think that will happen.

    As others have mentioned Apple has added features that have nothing to do with devs needing access (ie. FaceTime). Speech-to-text is easily one of these if it's hooked into the keyboard, as it seems to be, which all apps already support.

    This is must have. Will pull me back to Apple from Android if they finally include Widgets.
