iOS 5: Complete LIst of 200+ New Features

At the June 6 WWDC, Apple gave us 20 new features for iOS 5. But there were over 200 new features promised. I know I couldn’t come close to naming them. This article on TechZoom started listing them on June 8th. Now they have a list of 248 features plus 16 updates although not all of the updates apply to iOS 5.

Of course, we know of most of the first 20 or so features:
Notification Center, Lock screen notifications, iMessage, Newsstand, Reminders, Twitter intergrations, AirPlay Mirroring, iCloud.

Others might not be so well known, for example:

#18 Swipe Left to open camera roll,
#24 Organize photos within Camera Roll

#42 Improved mail search
