From September 2011, iOS 5 will be the standard operating system for Apple wireless devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch). Aesthetically it resembles the previous incarnations of iOS, but has some notable upgrades. Notifications no longer interrupt user activities and remain listed in a constantly-refreshing notifications window, with individual notifications appearing at the top of the screen, regardless of which app you're currently running. iMessage is a major upgrade, as it allows inter-Apple device messaging, for free, over 3G or WiFi connections (similar to RIM's BlackBerry Messenger). Newsstand is a new app that stores and updates all your magazine/newspaper subscriptions and organizes them on a bookshelf in the same way books are displayed currently in iBooks. "Reminders" is a new app that consolidates a to-do list with a calendar, and also synchronizes with iCal, Outlook, and iCloud.

Certain standard iOS apps feature upgrades as well, such as "reading list" bookmark update and tabbed browsing for safari, easier photo editing for iPhoto, and being able to take pictures from the lock screen using the camera. Another key feature is that all wireless iOS 5 devices are capable of updating themselves without a separate computer. Also, devices on a WiFi network are capable of syncing wirelessly with a home computer, either for updates or transfers.
