iOS 5.0 now available for download

Start your downloaders, iOS5 is on iTunes now!

707MB on my iPad2, haven;t gotten to the iPad1 or my iPhone4's yet.

Thankfully, this is the last tethered, full size update for iOS. Everything will be OTA delta updates from here.

Also, OS X 10.7.2 with iCloud support was released at the same time. Another 400MB+ download.

I won't get to it all before I have to head back to the airport...

Guys, be careful to check that your "must have" apps support iOS 5 before you upgrade. I know that at least one of mine (Stanza) doesn't yet.

NeilN, excellent advice.

The app updates are also coming fast and furious. Pages and iMovie in the past ten minutes alone...

Gotta go, just finished the download!

Yeah, I'm kind of pissed right now.

After three time-outs, the ipad download finally completed but the update processes fails

Trial and error on my part.

3 errors to back up and so I just said 'no' to backing up and voila process complete.

I did delete my music and photos just to be sure there wasn't a glitch re-organizing the files.

Looking good so far.

My Ipod touch (4th gen) will not complete the update to iOS 5 as I get "error 3200"... I think I know why this keeps occurring: Right at the end of the update process, iTunes has to connect to an Apple server to verify the update, and it just can't do that because their servers are swamped.

Guess I was early enough in line to complete the process on my IPad2. Even after the device update is loaded, expect another registration process to ICloud. It took about 90 minutes to complete everything but the music app is empty so I will have another resync when I get home.
