Word is out that Apple’s iPhone 5 will bring system-level integration with Twitter, allowing iFans to tweet more easily than ever before.
The good people at TechCrunch have been reportedly told by ‘multiple sources’ that essential Twitter features will be built into the next major iteration of iOS.
According to the sources, “Apple’s new iOS 5 will come with an option to share images to Twitter baked into the OS.
“This would be similar to the way you can currently share videos on YouTube with one click in iOS.
“Obviously, a user would have to enable this feature by logging in with their Twitter credentials in iOS. There would then be a “Send to Twitter” option for pictures stored on your device."
News of the developments come hot on the heels of growing speculation that Twitter is on the brink of announcing its own image hosting service.
With iOS integration, it may be possible to tweet images as easily as they can be currently shared on Facebook.
Apple is due to unveil iOS 5 next week at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), where it has also confirmed it will lift the lid on a new service called iCloud.
Meanwhile, rumours continue to pile up over exactly when the Cupertino giant will announce the fifth-generation iPhone, which is now being talked up for an August landing.
