Apple Has Just Released iOS 5

Published

Good news iPhone and iPad users, Apple has just released iOS 5! With over 200 new features, it like getting a completely new iPhone.

As usual, the upgrade is pretty massive (774.4 MB), so it’ll take awhile to download. I’ve got 44 minutes left until it finishes downloading. 🙁

iOS 5 could be the most significant update to the iDevice line since the rollout of iOS 3 back in 2009. We’re talking significantly revamped notifications, Twitter integration, wireless sync, iCloud, home screen improvements, and much more!

The folks at Everything iCafe have put together a comprehensive guide to using the new iOS 5 features, so be sure to check that out.

As an iPhone 4 owner, I don’t really see the need to upgrade to the 4S. I’ve never had any issues with speed, so while the new processor would be nice it’s not a huge deal. I’m banking on an iPhone 5 to come out hopefully in June 2012, with some more significant changes.

Fingers crossed!

    Fuuuuuuudge! After 90 minutes, I finally was able to download iOS 5.

    Of course, when it tries to install it on my phone, I get an Error 3200. Message boards say that too many people are hitting Apple’s servers, and that’s why that message is coming up. 🙁

    Since I woke up pretty early this morning (6am), I decided to give the iOS 5 update another shot. This time it went through without a problem.

    It did take awhile, probably 40 minutes start to finish, a lot of that time spent backing up and restoring my phone’s data.

    iOS 5 definitely lives up to the hype, and I haven’t even had a chance to play with all of the new features.

    iCloud and wireless syncing are awesome, and I noticed that more data is being sent over Bluetooth Audio, as my car now picks up the track info (something it didn’t do before).
