Preview of "magic" iOS 5 grips YouTube users: viral video spotlight
Monday 06 June 2011
The internet is buzzing with rumors and speculations as to what Apple will announce at its famous annual Worldwide Developers Conference, June 6-10. However before the event a video exaggerating the "magical" qualities of iOS 5, the operating system expected to be launched by Apple, has been gripping YouTube users.
The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) has traditionally been used by Apple as a forum for software announcements and hardware releases; this year's event begins at 10am PST and runs from June 6-10.
Apple has already confirmed that it will be unveiling iOS 5, the latest version of the operating system used by Apple devices.
However, despite the high expectations surrounding iOS 5, a video allegedly showing a preview of the system might be taking the software's abilities too far.
Exclusive Preview on iOS 5," the video features illusionist Simon Pierro and was uploaded by YouTube user iOSmagic on June 4.
Having been featured on technology blogs such as Mashable and The Urban Shotgun, the video has, as of 2pm GMT June 6, attracted 541,000 views.
During the video Simon Pierro, holding an iPad, appears to pull photos out of the screen, play virtual tennis with real balls and style a weather forecaster's hair; he also uses the iPad to "stream" milk.
