Here Is What Notifications Look Like In iOS 5 [Screenshot]



We just got a screenshot of the notifications bar in iOS 5.

It could be fake of course, but it looks pretty good to us. And it fits with what former Engadget editor-in-chief Joshua Topolsky is hearing.

Check it out full size:

Former Engadget EIC Topolsky says notification pop-ups are going away in favor of a drop down located at the top of the screen (similar to MobileNotifier).

According to a tip given to Topolsky, messages appear and then slide back up in an “unobtrusive manner, similar to webOS.”

There have been some leaked screenshots floating around the web for the last 24 hours, but those are not the real deal. The actual window looks more like a white, gradient Growl notification.

Kinda like this screenshot. What do you think? Real or not?
