    iOS 5 Released Today (Wednesday) - Get Your Devices Ready

    For those owning iPhones or iPads, Wednesday is the big day when the new version of the OS is released. Make sure to get yourself ready by doing the following:

    [B]Launch iTunes and download the latest updates.

    Sync your devices and download the latest updates.

    Download and install all App updates.

    Back-up all your devices.[/B]

    You'll need to do this before you can pull down the new iOS, so better to get it out of the way before the world descends upon apple.com and the servers are slammed.

    Back to the OS update itself, it's chock-full of great features (download the last Apple Keynote to see them, Steve Jobs last preso) just a few of which are:

    [B]Free iCloud Services

    Wi-fi Synching of all devices

    New Notifications schema

    New Camera app

    New Mail features

    Tabbed Safari browsing

    Built-in offline reader

    iMessage free text for any iOS device

    No PC or Mac needed for sync or media[/B]

    I have to say, the update does look pretty interesting. I'm confused about iCloud, though. What happens to MobileMe (I'm a subscriber)? Does it get completely replaced by iCloud? What happens to all of the things I have stored on MobileMe?

    It's all good. MobileMe no longer exists, but your current content/userid ports over to iCloud thusly:

    1. You keep your .me address, no change there.

    2. Your Mail, no change, and get 5GB of free storage.

    3. Your Calendar now has wireless sync across all devices. Calendar sharing so that you and a gf can make/delete appointments in the same place.

    4. Your Contacts now have wireless sync across all devices.

    5. You gain Docs in the Cloud (all docs sync) for free.

    6. You gain Apps, Books, and Backup in the Cloud for free.

    7. And best of all....you get Photo Stream which takes any photo you snap on your iPhone and sync's it instantly to your iPad, Mac, or Apple TV. For your last 1,000 photos. All free.

    Hmmm... #7 might be worrisome. I have some photos on my phone that don't need to be shared across all devices.

    If PoliDirt happens to be correct, the self taken thread could take a weird turn.

    However.. no comment.
