iOS 5: Anybody?

I understand it's been a rough day in Appleland with their servers being slammed and folks having a hard time downloading and installing the updates.

I ended up doing the download-only option on my iPad 2 in the office, because iTunes warned me to use the computer I usually sync with (which is home) lest my data get wiped. So I will try again later, though I don't know where the download went (the iPad or the iMac). Hopefully I don't have to suck down 722 megs again...

I didn't have any problems with the slew of desktop-only updates (10.7.2, etc.)

What was your experience?

Wise decision, I'm sure!

Oh, and I hear iPad 1 users are actually losing functionality-!

Like what functionality? I have an iPad 1 and updated earlier today. I assume the "5" in iOS 5 refers to the number of attempts it takes to update

Loss of some gestures, supposedly. There are several threads on Apple's support forum. My daughter has the older iPad and I have the newer, but I think we'll wait until the weekend...

BTW, here are instructions for bypassing iTunes to possibly avoid some installation trouble:

Re: iOS 5: Anybody?

Whew! I had already upgraded to iTunes 10.5 earlier today and had to re-install (as I have had to do each time for the last two upgrades, I think) but the upgrade for my iPod Touch to iOS5 seems to have gone smoothly! It is running iOS5, has restored the apps, music, video and photos, upgraded the camera so I can use the volume button to snap photos, has the new apps - guess I'll have to learn how to use the new goodies!

Re: iOS 5: Anybody?

I just did a quick and completely painless upgrade to iOS 5 on an iPad 2!

In the office I had downloaded the installers manually from here (we have 3 different iDevices):

Instructions to install are here:

http://techie-buzz.com/mobile-news/h...smanually.html

I had to do the Restore option as Upgrade was not accepted, but no problem. I had previously synced the iPad to the iMac and after the wipe, iTunes just restored everything. Lock and home screen images came back, wireless was remembered, apps were still in the folders I set up!

iOS 5 gives you the option to backup to either iCloud or the Mac. On the iPad 2 you can used multi-finger gestures to switch apps (swiping, pinching, etc.) which removes the need to mash the Home button all the time. Plus all the other new features.

Glad I did my research and didn't try to update live during the week!

Re: iOS 5: Anybody?

I upgraded my iPad2 and phone last night without any issues. I downloaded the newest version of iTunes to my computer first then proceeded to upgrade the devices. No issues and both were done in one take.
