While Apple disappointed by not giving the world and iPHone 5, or iPad 3 for that matter, it has done the next best thing with iOS 5. Slicker, packed with innovative features and, of course, free. There are plenty of other changes, but they’re more fun if you discover them yourself. By the time you read this the download issues will hopefully be resolved, so check it out and get ready to love your Apple devices all over again....Go To Full Review

As a result, iOS 5 will be apprecitated by those who have it and those coming into the iOS family, but probably won't make Android or Windows Mobile 7 users jealous. ...Go To Full Review

If you're hungry for new insights into iOS 5, though, there was little in Forstall's presentation that wasn't discussed back in June (see below), save for the October 12 release date....Go To Full Review

As with previous iOS updates, iOS 5 is totally free. As such, it’s hard to argue against installing it, especially as developers begin to take advantage of more and more of the under-the-hood features it offers....Go To Full Review
