Lol Kooky. Good luck RB, good luck. It will probably take a few hours, so post the results in the next 6 hours, as I gotta wake up at 6:15. Ugh. Early Northeast morning. I JUST WANT SOME DARN SUN! lol.

Well, I hope it is cool!

No i'm not actually back yet, still got 2.5 months to go. I'm just running the Australian itunes store and anyway the update doesn't work because it recognises that i'm not in the correct region:(

We don't expect any compatibility issues with iOS 5, though we're going to keep a close eye on this tomorrow.

iOS 5 is out today. Make sure you guys run a complete back up before installing the new iOS. Also make sure to keep a copy of older version (iOS 4.3.5) just in case you need to downgrade back. I don't anticipate any problem with this latest version but just in case.

Good luck!

I have upgraded my iPad 2, it seems to be working without any problems (yet). Is the below type of notification a new one? Just noticed it today..when closing it flips over blending into the layout.

Surprisingly, I was able to use my phone as it did this. New apps just kept popping onto my phone, rather than it doing it all and then allowing you access afterwards.

OH GOD! This went severely wrong! It said it couldn't restore it, now it is restoring, but iTunes doesn't recognize my iPod! I am resstoring it now, I REALLY HOPE iTunes didn't delete all of my iPod data!

I am so doomed!

iMessage is sweet. I like that it's blue. I always wanted to be able to change the bubble colours, but this is close enough I suppose!

Which device did you update? and does it make your device slow?

I updated my iPad. Had a slight glitch with backup. Got error code 3200. Removed all backups I had on my computer. I had one for my daughter and 2 for myself. After I deleted it created a new backup and everything worked fine. Games played the same.

A bit.. iphone 3gs. Overall it's pretty good! It'll take some time for them to work issues out.


I don't see any need to get this update.

Well, there are "200 new features" but if you don't feel you need them, then that's up to you! I personally find it pretty awesome so far.

I upgraded to ios 5 for my iPad 2. There are lags on the TL games i play: FS, bs, rs. Watering/tipping neighbors is painful--about a minute each neighbor. Also, there are significant delays for things to appear- there is alittle gray circle thing that appears in place of all my trees in FS and the icons to select recipes to cook, for example.

Overall, it was a nice upgrade that makes regular tasks even easier. I had a bunch of app updates in the last few days so many of my apps work well. I have a handful of apps that will need bug fixes to work correctly. I do like the iCloud, mail, and safari tab upgrades, in particular.

Luck! Btw the error 3200 means that the connection timed out. Just redo it if it happens!

I also had an error and it turned out that I had around 8 window updates that I had not done, so my operating system was outdated so the update would not go through. Once I updated the laptop, and restarted I got it done.
