iPhone lovers out there – including me – are expecting to see the new face of the iOS, the iOS 5. The latter is expected to revamp the notification system. You probably know what I’m talking about if you’re an iPhone, iPod Touch (not iTouch) and/iPad user. Indeed the notification system is so-so, and further needs a lot of improvement – in function and aesthetics.

I, personally, would want to see a Homescreen too – like that of Android’s – where I can place widgets and a lot of cool stuff. I’m already tired of jailbreaking my iPhone everytime a new firmware pops in.

Here are some concept software improvements for the iOS courtesy of Jan Michael Kart:

Mac users, however, are expecting to see to see a lot of new updates on Mac OS X Lion. Lion was announced last year and left us with lots of improvements from the Snow Leopard.

Another product that is expected to be unveiled is iCloud. It is rumored to compete with Dropbox and lets you access your iTunes music, video and other data files in the cloud. Awesome, right?
