iOS 5 Twitter Integration and iPhone 5 at Apple’s WWDC 2011?

Posted on Jun 5 2011 - 5:41pm by Robert

Apple will take the wraps off iOS 5 tomorrow at their hotly anticipated keynote at WWDC 2011. Over the last week, rumours and snippets of information have been circulating around what iOS 5 could bring to the iPhone, and whether the iPhone 5 could be unveiled at the same event. If the latter does happen, then we could witness an Apple iPhone 5 with deeply integrated Twitter functionality.

The eagle-eyed team at Mac Rumors spotted a Tweet from Robert Scoble, a man known for his insider knowledge of all things Apple. It read ““Next week will be a huge week for those of us who have lived on Twitter for last few years. Apple is building Twitter in deeply into iOS5.”

This has prompted tech lovers to question the term ‘deeply’, apparently iOS 5 won’t just come with  ‘send to Twitter’ buttons as seen on competing devices but will instead utilize a new set of tool built deeply into the framework of iOS. Despite this huge claim, many have predicted that a new ‘send to Twitter’ button would be a powerful addition on its own as iPhone owners could send photos directly to the micro blogging service after taking them or even from their camera roll.

Techcrunch also suggests that send to Facebook and Flickr buttons could also be included in tomorrows unveiling of iOS 5. With so much leaking over the past week it’s hard to know what surprises will come at tomorrows event, many have suggested that the outing of Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud via press release could mean hardware surprises could be unveiled tomorrow. We could still see the iPhone 5 or new MacBook air in the hands of Steve Jobs tomorrow.

Would you like a deeper integration of Twitter or Facebook on iOS devices, and would you like to see the Apple iPhone 5  tomorrow?
