Started the download for IOS 5 about an hour ago. iTunes says it's going to be another 30 minutes. I guess I'm not the only one who wants it.

Gizmodo has a great review of some of the new features:

To save some time, make sure you download iTunes 10.5 first, it's required and you will be prompted to do so when you start your upgrade.

Still waiting for the file to download. You may want to wait until tonight to upgrade...

My kid got up at 5:30 am to download this - strictly to have access to the BBM technology. Of course the download wasn't available at 5:30 this morning :).

It's a lo-o-ng download. Then, if you want photo streaming on the iCloud, there's a new release of iPhoto to buy ($15) and another somewhat long download (782M).

Warning, if it matters: if you want to use iCloud, and if you use Gmail, you can't sync Contacts with both iCloud (i.e. local address book) and Gmail. Pick.

There are lots of complaints about the iOS upgrade.

Updating To iOS 5 Has Been A Massive Headache [businessinsider.com]

Ever since iOS 5 was made available to the public around 1 PM ET or so, we've been attempting to update in vain.

The download goes through, but an error message keeps popping up when people try to install iOS 5. It says the update can't be completed and that the iPhone/iPad can't be restored.

Not only has no one in our office been able to complete the upgrade, but we're hearing from friends around the city and country that they're having similar trouble.

frontpage, This happened to me as well. I had to wait to late last night to get the update to download. Apparently Apple's servers were overloaded with requests.

Also, make sure to update all of your apps, as many have been altered to work with the new IOS and will not initially show up on your phone!

It works fine now and IOS 5 is awesome.

I love iOS5. It revitalised my good ol' 3GS to the point where it feels like a new phone altogether :)

Problems plague Apple iCloud, iOS launch

Apple Inc rolled out its new iCloud service and latest mobile software to a chorus of user complaints this week, after glitches led to email access problems and long delays in installation.



But the iCloud problems are especially embarrassing for Apple, as the company introduced the new online service with much fanfare in June at its annual developer forum.

As a non Apple user i wonder if you have a choice when to download the upgrade, if yes than you never been an MMORPG player, because than you would know, never play on batch day... ;-)

@viggen If I read you correctly, you're right about *when* - as for "long" download, I found that by going the next day for mi esposa's laptop, it went blazingly fast. Must have been competition for Apple's servers. My bad.

Apple's iCloud launch woes evoke MobileMe's '08 debacle

Computerworld - The launch of Apple's new iCloud service has been reminiscent of the fiasco three years ago when the company debuted MobileMe, according to users' complaints that describe a sweeping range of problems.


One of the fastest-growing complaints, however, is about iCloud's failure to deliver emails, or let users log onto their .me or .mac accounts.
