Nope, that's odd. I took a backup of Mac yesterday morning before all these updates and it had 40.79 GB free at that point. I now have 39.7 GB free, so looks like just over 1 GB has been used for me.

Probably 770MB for every repeat attempt.

Have you powered off/powered on since the upgrade? Might be worth trying if not.

RE: iOS 5...

Worth noting that the download may 'only' be @770MB, but that's a compressed file - which extracts itself once you download it. Not saying it'll be taking multiple GB mind you, but more than initial download size, it seems....

So now, have just found out location based reminders don't work on the 3GS either.

Beginning to feel like Lando Calrissian...

Ah yes, i didnt think about the fact that it will have created multiple back ups each time so,   770mb (after file uncompressed) x10 probably does get somewhere near the lost memory.   I'll have a look at the "back up" file when i get home and hope that does the trick.  thanks very much for the hints!

RE: iOS 5...

Further clarification from Infoworld:

iOS 5 provides automatic wireless syncing and backup to your choice of your computer's iTunes or your iCloud account. You can manually sync to both, and your iTunes purchases can sync to all devices tied to your Apple ID over the Internet, rather than through iTunes. iTunes Wi-Fi syncing requires iTunes 10.5 on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard, or Mac OS X 10.7.2 Lion. iCloud requires Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Mac OS X 10.7.2 Lion.

Probably sensible - though there are a lot of great features. There's the big ones like Notification Centre and iCloud, but one little hidden gem is Shortcuts (under General > Keyboard) which lets you set up small typing macros. A pre-defined example is "omw" which is automatically changed to "On my way!" when you type it within an app. You can add your own, so makes typing things you say a lot much easier.

RE: iOS 5...

Love the hat JD Smile Things seem to be running a bit more smoothly today, a couple of the guys in the office upgraded this afternoon without any hitches. Daren't think what the strain on Apple's servers was like last night!  :O Took me several hours to update, as you can read in my blog.

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"?

 

Hi,

Yes I have an option like that. When I tick it, itunes restarts itself despite a manual shut down, haven't had time to play today yet but going to investigate more.

Cheers,

Cofnchtr.

I can only access the camera from the locked screen when i double press the home button. I can no longer access it when the phone is unlocked. Anybody else have this problem?

Nope, Camera app works normally for me when I use it from both. What happens when you try?
