Re: apple ios 10.5

Gave me a few problems, took many many hours to put my music back on, I had to interupt 1/2 way through because I needed my phone. Unfortunately it thought the backup hadn't completed and started all again (I could have canceled the backup restore, but I found that out later). Eventually I synched it with a few small playlists, then left the main one overnight.

It also reset all my apps, restored a whole load I didn't use. I lost a couple of pictures that were on the phone, overall, iOS updates seemed to have been handled better in the past.

Re: apple ios 10.5

So with the new OS we have...
Being forced to use iCloud on iOS5 because many things depend on it, KeyChain and Mail syncing has been removed in iCloud and MobileMe no longer works. Not impressed to no longer have VLC working, I guess they really don't like free stuff. But wait, what was Jobs' justification for not using Flash again?

By almost any definition, Flash is a closed system."
Riiiiight.

Good point about the reasoning behind not using Flash

I never used MobileMe though, so wasn't too bothered, and I only ticked the mimum for the synching of the iCloud, I mean apart from backing up my contacts I have no other use for it as I'm boycotting all other apple products (trying at least ).

But overall I'm impressed with a big improvement in the OS I think, it's the little things in the end that make the big things great! Just being able to edit my recent calls so the wife doesn't get suspcious is a win for me! Other things like the notification pop ups being removed and replaced by a subtle slide down box at the top is great!

I think the slide down bar is great too. I just think it's unfortunate that it's a huge Android rip off

It's still there on my phone because, tadaa, I always wait for others to update first, as this reduces my frustration a bit - waiting for the kinks to be sorted out. But this was the observation of a few friends of mine.

Re: Apple IOS v5

Oh great, it removed my Spotify and with that a few hundred synced songs. Oh well.

Other than that, not a very exiting upgrade. I was expecting a more business like lock screen with weather, stocks, upcoming meetings and stuff.

Re: Apple IOS v5

I upgraded to iOS5 yesterday and have noticed a significantly higher battery drain. Not sure if the two are linked, is anyone else getting that?

Location based reminders are not available on 3GS. Thieving money grabbing apple gypsies.

Re: Apple IOS v5

Now that was easy, all the apps are there as well, that never happened before. Normally I wish I had not updated, this time it's all fine

To be fair, the 3GS has a poor gps chip in comparison with the 4.

You had to pay for an update for your 26 month old phone? Ask for a refund everyone else got it for free...

I read that the reason you don't have location based updates is because the GPS chip in the newer iPhones is a lot better at monitoring your location without killing your battery
