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.
My iPhone is also bricked. Plugged into iTunes (fully updated) and downloaded iOS 5. Began installing and errored out. Lost everything. iPhone now stuck in Recovery Mode and won't update to iOS 5.
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.
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.
