A screenshot of a new iOS 5 notification bar has emerged ahead of Steve Jobs’ WWDC Keynote address today. It certainly looks real. What do you think?
Cult of Mac notes that the notification bar keeps in line with Apple’s current iOS user interface guidelines “associated with tethering, Skype and voice recording.” The screenshot also alludes to the rumored deep Twitter integration and a new camera app icon.
MG Siegler of TechCrunch further notes the credibility of screenshot:
Before you go yelling “fake” on the obvious things, a couple notes. First of all, yes, 11:54 PM is in the future (as of his post) — in the United States. But if the Weather app is to be believed, this is clearly a European version of iOS (note the 23 degrees Celsius in the icon instead of 72 degree Fahrenheit as you would see in the U.S.).
Either someone has good Photoshop skills, or this is the new notification bar in iOS 5. Jobs will let us know at 10 am Pacific today.
