Notification Center

As the name suggests, it is a way to manage app notifications without constantly bothering the users. It just builds up on the existing notification system. This enables the existing local and push notifications to work. Push notifications are now built into the Xcode thus easier to implement.

Newsstand

The iOS 5 provides the Newsstand Kit wherein you have your favourite issues stacked to read. It facilitates users to manage their auto-renewable subscriptions (In-App purchase) easily. It also renders it possible to provision apps for In-App Purchase within Xcode.

Automatic Reference Counting (ARC)

The ARC for Objective-C makes when enabled with Apple LLVm compiler, it makes the memory management jobs a lot smoother. This compiler reduces crashes and memory leaks among other functions so as to make the running of apps faster than ever before and accounts for their brilliant performance.

Moreover, when your app is a Twitter client, it can use the Twitter APIs for single sign on service. It is also possible to migrate existing accounts to iOS.

Storyboards

The Storyboard feature is built into the design tools of the Xcode that helps you layout the workforce of your app. It is created for apps requiring navigation and tab bars to switch between views as it manages the view controllers. The user can specify various transitions that are used without coding them.

AirPlay

Already introduced in the iOS 4, AirPlay wirelessly streams various multimedia to Apple TV. With the iOS 5, it is possible to mirror everything on the iPad 2 device to an HDTV via the Apple TV and that too - automatically. Not only that, but with additional APIs, your app can display separate contents on both - HDTV and iPad 2 screens.
Apps built with the AV Foundation are enabled in iOS 5 to stream audio and video content through AirPlay (which also supports encrypted streams that are delivered via HTTP Live Streaming)

Core Image

Core Image allows the users to experiment with amazing photo effects in the camera and image editing apps. It paves the way to enhance not only photos but videos as well through built-in filters like - color effects, distortions and transitions and includes vital features such as - red eye correction, auto enhance and facial recognition.

The GLKit provides a high-level framework combinig the best approaches in various rendering and texture techniques. The OpenGL ES extensions that are designed specifically for afvanced game developers are included within the iOS 5 SDK. The OpenGL ES debugger in Xcode helps in tracking down various issues specific to the OpenGL ES in the code.
