iOS 5 Released!

iOS 5 had the world waiting anxiously for it's prophesied release yesterday, and when it was released to the public, man did it have a positive reaction! Apple's servers were at maximum capacity from the moment it hit the web and millions of cries of joy erupted across the globe; iOS 5 was here.

But what makes iOS 5 any different from Apple's earlier updates? Apart from the usual UI changes, the introduction of a FREE cloud service (iCloud, which was released yesterday) that can:
  • Save almost complete backups of your iDevice on Apple's secure servers
  • Share files seamlessly to and from your Devices
iOS 5 also means that your iDevice is no longer bound to your computer for syncs and updates, you can now do these wirelessly, and for iOS updates, well, they can be done straight from your device!

So what are you waiting for? If you haven't already updated, just connect your device to your computer, open iTunes and click on the update prompt!
