    iOS5 - Update Issues

    I know I'm probably stating the obvious but if you have issues this evening updating to iOS5 then be aware that the Apple servers are sloooooow. It's taken me 6 attempts to update my iPhone4 this evening. It's finally done it but several timeouts, server errors (3004 and (0xE800065). The Apple website is useless at explaining them.

    The internet is awash with people moaning about it.

    So be aware - it will take time but it will get done.

    Best wishes,

    GJE

    I've seen the moans too and the two iPhone owners in my house have decided to leave it a few days.

    I'm seeing several complaints about the newest version of iTunes not working too... guess we'll leave the whole lot to settle down!

    I did mine at 7pm last night, it took 2 attempts to download and one the second attempt it took just over 2 hours to download. The actual upgrade went ok without any problems.

    Its just what happens when millions of users hammer Apple's servers. Finite amount of bandwidth.

    Mines done, took about 30 mins to download and the same to update - from what I've seen so far, there isn't a massive amount of difference - the introduction of iCloud and the new notification area seem the major things to me (although I have yet to go through all the new features)

    I must just be jammy. Took about 10 mins to download and then about half hour to install. Left it over night to get all the apps back on & music went on quick this morning. Only thing I'm narked at is if I want iCloud to sync everything I have to upgrade to Lion. & I'll be losing iDisk.

    I'm leaving mine until the weekend. I'm on the GM anyway so not that worried. I was frustrated with the repeated attempts to convert my MobileMe account to iCloud but got there eventually.

    GM = PR so no need to update, the only thing you need to do is update itunes version.

    I did an upgrade from the previous build on the iPad2, so will DFU that and might do the iPhone at the same time because I can.

    Still waiting to here when the iTunes Music Matching can be tested outside of US ...

    I'm still using my iDisk until next June, but will slowly move away to other tools.
