    Well I couldn't find an organized thread for listing out all the new features that are available in iOS 5. I dug through the OS and found over 100 new changes. I'm trying to find out all the small and big changes in iOS 5.

    There is a feature list here with some of them listed. It would be nice to create a full list, organized.

    First, that is a nice list

    Second, I don't think apple has included all 200 or so new features into the first beta of iOS 5.

    Great list! can't wait for the update!

    I personally don't think the developers will be pee'd off due to the release of the notification & camera app! healthy bit of competition me thinks, it just makes the developers step up their game and incorporate the same codes in their apps!

    And i for one will find it hard to stop using my 2Do and Camera + apps :D

    Apple should let users choose what camera app to open when the lockscreen button is pressed, it would be a plus for developers like taptaptap and Camera+

    No. 36
    New Facetime option in Settings window. You can also set your facetime caller ID to be your email or your phone number

    Does that mean i no longer have to wait for activation for facetime on my simcard. And no SMS sending business? And if im in a foreign country with no sim on the iphone, i can still make facetime calls using WiFi?

    It looks like the option is just for Caller ID. I'm not sure if it would work without a SIM. But technically its possible that apple could allow activations using the email address rather than the mobile number, just like in iPod. May be anyone here could figure out this from the screenshot above?

    Maybe you could please try removing ur simcard, and then go to the facetime option , and see if you can switch facetime ON with your apple ID.
    I would appreciate that :)

    Great list and clean layout, although I'd have included screenshots right under the feature listed, not on the bottom.

    Hopefully!

    Hope they don't make it the selling point for next iPhone.

    So here's my take one all these list put there about the features the are counting every little thing the new feature is doing... So what I, getting at is there are way less feature in the beta than what people are counting. In the keynote the covered everything that notifiction center did as one feature same goes for imessage yet every one is counting everything they both do as a new feature when In fact the are just what the feature does...

    I'm sure you are correct, after all it's only just been announced and even though they've been working on it awhile, it takes time for an upgrade of this nature.

    half the "features"

    Half of these "features" are bug fixes. The ability to mark multiple emails read is not a feature in my mind. Its 2011 not 2000. I feel like im ranting but its horrible how they try to repackage normal abilities of phones and act like theyre revolutionary.

    I agree.
    But with the iPhone is not if it has what every other phone does but how it's implemented and ease of use.
