iOS 5...

So it's taken over 2.5 hours to download and install, but we're finally there. Instant impression - is it just me, or does it look a little shinier? Smile

Time to have a play...

RE: iOS 5...

Hi,

I also thought it was 'shinier'.

Can't move the newstand to another folder though :o(

Have synced via wi-fi but itunes keeps starting itself on the PC - possibly because I have enabled wifi sync? 

Wonder what will happen with 2nd iPhone and iPad 2??? 

Edit: iPad is now downloading the iOS5 update. Would have thought one download would have been sufficient for all idevices?

Cheers,

Cofnchtr.

RE: iOS 5...

Lucky chaps...I'm on my 5th try after receiving "internal errors" which appear to be down to Apple's servers not able to register the software....Grrh...I've been at this since 6pm.  Last attempt until the morning so fingers crossed!

So far so good. 15 minutes (couldn't start until 22:00 due to work connection) and 247MB dowloaded. Only another 500MB or so to go Sad

There is a lot of variation in functionality between the models (there is a different install for iPad and iPad2 for instance).  They have seperate installers to keep the build as lean and fast as possible.

I have 50 meg BB at home, and still its taken just over 2 hours with 40 odd mins left.  For some reason I need to install a Mac OS update (iCloud maybe?).  Anyway, hope its worth it.

RE: iOS 5...

Now on 8th attempt to load on iOS5 to my iPad2 - still getting internal error after goes through a painfully slow back up.  This is definitely my last go today.  All rather disappointing.  I also can't get Apple TV to update...it just fails Sad

Hi,

Thanks for the info. Would have preferred one 800mb download to 2 @ 700 though. Can't have it all I suppose!! At least I don't have a BB...

Cheers,

Cofnchtr.

RE: iOS 5...

iphone updated after one hour download then 30minutes of faffing about with apps and music.  Ipad on 3rd attempt - seems to be taking for ever on app restore.  Apple tv failed once.  Lion and iphoto took 2 and a half hours.  iKnow iSad

RE: iOS 5...

Fave features so far are little scroll flick down to see Notifications, plus the Reminders app looks good.

Yes, very poor that.

I don't seem to have this option on my Summary tab. Just to be clear, do you have something which looks like this in iTunes?

i.e. a tick box which says "Sync with this iPhone over Wi-fi"?

You lucky suckers, my iTunes is not showing the update to 10.5 yet, so no chance of getting iOS5 yet, I'll try again in the morning. I need sometime with it before deciding if the 4S is a worthy investment or not!

RE: iOS 5...

Got it here on my iPad.

Been at it since about 6:15pm. A couple of errors and an age 'backing up' and restoring, finally finished at about 10pm.

Liking the tabbed browsing and erm... Well that's all I've really played with so far.

Not supprising its all taken this long when you think about it, they have released Lion 10.7.2, os upgrades for all of their gadgets, new itunes 10.5, new versions of iWork, added text tone store to itunes and opened up iCloud.  They must be stress testing that new data centre in carolina, cos I bet its getting hammered right now! :beer:

RE: iOS 5...

Possibly just theres too much demand on the server Dan?

 

All the OSX gubbins is now downloaded and I have setup iCloud (very simple), and I have 20 mins left for iTunes to get the iOS 5 software.  Looks like that'll be me going to bed then...

RE: iOS 5...

Brilliant!

Been tooling around for 30 minutes with everything to ensure it all works and everything (settings etc.) is still intact. It is. (Even the last answer on the calculator - that I had forgotton to clear - was still there.)

Seemless update. Everything is faster.  Syncing it takes about a second rather than the 20 seconds it took before.

It's on a full charge so i'm going to see if battery life is the same over the next 24 hours.

Relieved - after some of the moans here - that it all looks good so far. (I really didn't want to have to get a 4S if I could help it.)

I've updated iTunes on three computers today (and the monthly Windows updates on two of them) and now this update too.

The router is finally cooling off Smile
