I haven't updated my iPhone, iPad and iPod touch yet but plan to later on in the day.

Have any of you Apple users downloaded the new iOS yet? If so, what are your thoughts/comments on it?

I tried to, but was unable to. Research online indicates half are having similar problems due to Apple servers being overloaded. So I guess I will have to wait.

Let me know when you are able to, and I'll try it again then.

Good luck. I can only imagine it will get worse once everybody gets home from work and starts trying it.

Yeah, it is enough for me to give it another try now too, before giving up until tomorrow.

Okay, I managed to get it updated, albeit a few hairy moments when it failed a few times and my phone was bricked in between, fearing I would have to make a trip to the Apple store just to get my phone working again. Nonetheless, all looks good now. It sets you up with iCloud right away, which is nice, as I was looking forward to that more than anything. Notification Center looks interesting too.

Awesome! You lucky! Yeah, I was interested in the Notification Center. Do you like it?
Mine keeps timing out. Oh well. I'm gonna keep trying for a little while.

How far have you gotten in the process. Did it download, then time out?

Still playing around with Notification Center, as there are a lot of settings, as to how it will show up on your screen to what you can include in the alerts. Pretty cool I guess. I'll be playing around with iCloud soon, though, as that involves a lot, from setting up a new me.com email account to syncing all your docs and musics online. I also like how app data will finally be saved across multiple devices.

It downloaded part way, and then timed out. I'm trying again.

That's great! The more options the better. I'm confused as to how iCloud works though. Maybe you can let me know after you get it all set up.
Yeah, syncing app data between devices will be very convenient!

Bummer. I at least got through the lengthy download process before the failures started. Are you doing it through WiFi or a direct connection?

Here's something cool I just discovered about iCloud. It has a new feature called Find My Phone, where, if lost (I've misplaced it at work a couple of times, I admit ), it can be located via a map and even remotely locked. You set that up right away, but I didn't know what it entailed until just now.

That's a great feature! I think everyone has set their phone down and forgot where they put it at one time or another. Luckily I'm usually at home when I do that.

I'm using a WiFi connection. Would it be better if it was a direct one? How long did the download process take for you?

I used a WiFi connection, but when I was trouble shooting my issues, I read a suggestion to use an ethernet connection directly to your modem. I was about to do that before I finally completed the process successfully.

One thing I did do was to disable my firewall, per another suggestion.

The download portion took 30 minutes. Luckily once it did, I didn't have to redownload on later tries.
