One small but notable additional feature that we've been made aware of is the addition of upcoming calendar events on the Notification Center.

Apple's Notification Center is a centralized view of all your push notifications and widgets. A simple swipe from the top of the screen brings the notification center into view. See this video for the Notification Center in action in both portrait and landscape mode.

In the latest beta, Apple has also included calendar events for the upcoming 24 hours in the view, so you can see easily see your calendar appointments at a glance. There are no settings yet to adjust how far in advance you can see your events. Apple has announced it will be releasing iOS 5 to the public this fall.

Nice looking UI and Very Realistic

I like it. The added realism of 1 AT&T bar makes me know this is legit!

I don't get why people always complain about this. How often are you really turning WiFi on and off that it becomes an inconvenience to press the screen three or so times?

Since battery is becoming the biggest issue of smartphones, turning off WiFi gives me more time. Besides the battery issue, every wifi spot bothers me with a popup message.

That linen texture sucks. Why did they think that was a good idea?

Just turn off "Ask to Join Networks" under Settings -> Wi-Fi Networks.

Everybody deserves a WiFi toggle on/off on notifications menu, even though it's not a notification. "Screen Unlocking -> Settings -> Wifi -> On/Off" SUCKS and takes much time. Please, Apple, solve this.
