Apple iOS 5

Postby jtoh » Sat Oct 15, 2011 1:44 pm

Anyone downloaded and installed the Apple iOS 5 already? How is it? Is it difficult to install?

I had done so for my iPad

Installation did not went so smoothly for me. Initially itunes, complained of not enough diskspace for backup, subsequently, update still failed. It only worked after I did a "factory default", then restore from backup.

it was smooth sailing for me on the iPhone 4

some apps are "stuck" in the cloud .... you got to instal them again but data are retained

also, when you restore, you have the option to restore it to before back up (with all your settings except pass code which has to reset), or choose to restore as a new phone .....

new apps bundled in the iOS5 include 'reminders' and 'video'.

the reminder app is good

I haven't installed mine yet. I'm wondering if it'll make my 3GS even slower.

Should avoid until more feedback from people who tried.

that is because the way the iOS5 operate

all the apps you have are now in iCloud after the upgrade to iOS5, so you have to bring it down, that is how i interpret it, after i done mine without any hiccup

Just use itunes to update it lor..

It will make a backup of the iDevice, then clear everything, install the new iOS, then restore the Apps/Data back to the iDevice Automatically w/o user intervention..

Somehow, after updating to iSO5, I got difficult Syncing the photo album.. always got missing albums.. need to try a few times to get the album correctly populate the iPad Device..

But the Sync over WiFi function seems quite convenient.. No need messy wires anymore..

Don't have any problems so far, though DH was complaining the iPad's a bit slower.
