iOS 5 now available for iPhones, iPads


The next version of iOS is now available. In the early hours of the morning, somewhere around 4am, Apple hit the release button on the highly anticipated iOS5. With a brand new notification system, over the air updates and many other tweaks and refinements, it all sounds like software goodness.

Products compatible with this software update:
    •    iPhone 4S
    •    iPhone 4
    •    iPhone 3GS
    •    iPad 2
    •    iPad
    •    iPod touch (4th generation)
    •    iPod touch (3rd generation)

To get the latest iOS on your device, connect your device to iTunes and click ‘Check for Update’. You should receive an alert saying iOS version 5.0 is now available. Choose the download and update option, cross your fingers and the update should be on your phone.

It seems the update may not be rolling out as smoothly as Apple would hope, Computerworld reports that Apple forums were flooded with complaints about the update failing. From the twitter crowd, it seems a number were able to successfully complete the upgrade without issue.

Have you upgraded ? Had any issues ?
