With iOS 5 on track for a Summer preview and a Fall launch, Apple has already begun internally testing the iOS update with third party apps. The developer FutureTap tweeted on Wednesday that it noticed a crash log from its app with information revealing that the OS version in question was iOS 5.0.
Interestingly enough, the MKUserLocationBreadCrumb API deals with mapping and location functionality.
Oh what, oh what could Apple be up to.
While we don’t know much about iOS 5 quite yet, it’s been heavily rumored that the next iOS update will be significant, with a huge focus on location-based features including check-in functionality. And whadya know, 3 Foursquare executives tweeted last week that they were visiting Apple’s Cupertino campus. Clearly, something is afoot.
Another feature rumored to play a central role in iOS 5 is advanced voice activation technology, which may take some cues from Siri, a company Apple purchased in 2010.
