Sources close to CultofMac has informed them that Apple is buying a small company to revamp the much criticized notification system of iOS.

iOS 5

Apple is working on a new notification system for iOS and will be buying a small company to build its technology into the operating system, according to one of our sources.

It is no secret that Android’s, WP7’s and webOS’ notification system offers far better experience than iOS’ current notification system, which is intrusive at best.

Apple’s pop-up notification system for new text messages, voicemails and the like has often been criticized as one of the weakest parts of the iOS. Notifications are intrusive, modal and often cryptic. It’s a mess.

Hopefully, we will see a complete revamp of notification system when Apple rolls out iOS 5 with iPhone 5 this summer.
