Here is a short list of the things that I think will be present in iOS 5. The correct featureset will be announced at the 2011 WWDC.
- Improved notification infrastructure, i.e., like the jumping dock present in Mac OS.
- Storage of contacts/documents/mail/calender events/books/purchased songs and videos on the cloud with no intervention and no limit
- Improved support for exchange and corporate infrastructure
- Group messaging
- Dynamic homescreen tiles
- Universal search
- New animations for common actions
- Support for at least 10 more languages (I would say 20 new languages)
- Improved iTunes/iPod experience
- Improved lock screen
- Font/kerning updates
- Improved accessibility
- Maps improvement
