It's not an OTA update, but you have to restore through iTunes. See link.

I just upgraded using these links on my iPad 1, works great.

I'll wait for a jailbreak...

EDIT: I'll wait for an untethered jailbreak, they already have tethered ones that work with iOS GM.

I'll wait too, it seems this is a full system restore that will wipe the device, then you have to restore your data.

I was able to back up my device and restore in 15 minutes. Done.

You guys will really enjoy it. Addresses A LOT of concerns we have brought up on the forums. Been beta testing it for a month or so now and it's 10-fold over iOS4. :thumbsup:

Hopefully it won't turn the phone into a slow POS.

I really like ios and think it is more stable and polished than Android but this is pretty funny

Hmmm after I backup my ipod, iTune 10.4.1 worked fine but after installed iTune 10.5 beta 7 it failed to launched. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled iTune beta but it still failed to launched so I reinstalled iTune 10.4.1 and it launched fine.

Wonder why the latest beta didnt worked on mine while some of you managed to get it launched?

If here no workaround then guess I have to wait until 12 October for official release.

Yeah, a restore will get you 100% back to how your phone was before. If you set up and new phone you'll lose stuff.

I found iOS5 has my iPhone 4 running better than ever. It's not like the 3G going from iOS3 to iOS4.

LOL

I guess it wouldn't bother me so much if they didn't claim to invent things. Of course, it's nothing new. Other companies lift stuff all the time and tout them as something new that they invented. :lol:

I finally managed to installed iTune 10.5 beta 7 after logged in as Administrator and upgraded my itouch 4G to iOS 5 but after a day with 1 min usage 5 times in 1 day caused 12% drop in battery to 88% after full charge, not very impressive. Android has superior battery managment than iOS.

Apple never fixed the battery drain issue in iOS 5 so they all cared are added few features like pull down notifications, messages, reminders and newsstand. Only thing I noticed Books was removed, newsstand probably replaced it.

still think it all stems from the instant on wifi introduced in ios4. it may my 2g touch die fast, got the 4g when it came out but still drains fast, but my god scrabble is a battery sucker

iOS 3.1.3 had the best battery management, last 2 weeks on my old ipod touch 3G. Same thing went with iOS 4.0 on my currrent ipod touch 4G but I noticed the battery drained faster when upgraded to iOS 4.2 and Apple never fixed the issues since 4.2. I think the possible cause is Apple changed something with multitasking in iOS 4.2.

I was going ask about that. How does it run on an iPhone 4? It's interesting that the 4S only have 512MB, just like the 4. I guess they squeezed it in.

When I got my 4 it was fast, but it seems the last couple of version made it sluggish at times, mainly when swiping though the screens or launching apps. The apps themselves run fine. I read somewhere it has to do with the way iOS takes a screenshot of everything so it can animate it during transitions.

I found my slowdowns were more to do with the Facebook app, which they just re wrote, my phone is very fast now. Also I don't run a jb anymore. jbing will always slow the phone a small amount.

Apple usually pushes iOS releases out between 9-10am Pacific, OSX updates 1-3pm Pacific.

I'm gonna let you guinea pigs do the update first. Worried that it's going to slow the phone down. I have read IOS 4 turned some of the Iphone3s into turds.
