iMessage in iOS 5 allows text messaging, but does not currently connect to third-party chat services like AIM. iChat software built into Mac OS X does connect to services like AIM, Jabber and others, like Yahoo Messenger. Developer John Heaton found some code in the latest version of iOS that hints iChat functionality could finally be coming to the iOS mobile operating system.

There already has been rumors before that Apple was testing a iChat like service on iOS and these codes will confirm that Apple atleast tested the service. Apple did not announce anything yet, but we will keep you informed if anything new pops up.
