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.

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.

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