Moving to IOS 5 (Questions & Answers)
« on: October 11, 2011, 10:53:32 am »
So how many of us are upgrading to IOS 5 tomorrow?

I bought a new iPod Touch so I could run it. Well, that and the multitasking that my 2nd gen iPod Touch couldn't do (although I suspect that may have been a marketing decision, not a hardware capability problem).

    I will update my iPad 2 for sure.  Lots of neat tweaks and additions in iOS 5, with wireless syncing and update being the most important/handy one IMO.

    Wireless syncing may be the number one reason I will immediately upgrade.

    I ordered 2 ipod touches and an ipad last week.  I got a call yesterday from Apple explaining how sorry they were that my ipods were mistakenly shipped without the new software and explained how to update.  I was very surprised to receive them today (tracking info said they would be here Thurs) so I am looking forward to updating them tomorrow.

    Me! I'm downloading Lion now, then I'll download and install the latest iTunes (10.5, I think?), and THEN I'll download and install iOS5 onto one iPhone 4, one iPad, and three iTouches. Hubby can take care of his own installs. I'm guessing my new iPhone 4S will come with iOS5 already installed, right?

    Can I update my iPhone 3G to iOS5? I know some of the features wouldn't work, but is it a good idea to do that at all? Once the new phone arrives on Friday, the iPhone 3G will essentially be used as an iTouch only, anyway.

    just got my itunes updated, and waiting on the ios to go live here.  I didn't know today was the day, just figured I would go check and was surprised to see that itunes was up.  then hopped over here to see if any of you had news.  Glad to see I'm hitting on the right hitting on the right day!  I don't know how well my 3gs is gonna run IOS5, but I'm gonna give it a whirl anyway.  I want the volume camera button!

    Yeah, I imagine they'll get slammed once it goes up.  I'll either wait until tomorrow or just set it to download and install tonight when I go to bed as I figure the download will be super slow today/tonight.

    Same thing happened to me. I'm just going to wait a while, the servers are swamped. Apparently, the updater has to talk to a server before finishing, even though the update file has been downloaded.

    This happens every time, especially with major updates. Even before I was jailbroken, I learned not to bother updating for a few days, both due to the server-side issues with Apple and then due to any glitches--those usually turn up in the first couple of days.

    My iPad only took about 20 minutes or so. My iPhone took multiple tries because of delays verifying the device. It's working now though.

    I got the update downloaded with no issues, earlier today.  Thought that was cool.  But now, so far, two errors in restoring.  Told me the restore server couldn't be contacted or is temporarily unavailable.  So, yep... darn it!  gonna have to wait. 

    Has anyone updated a 3gs yet?   Wondering how the IOS runs on it.
