iOS 5 Update – A Survey of the Reactions! Cast your Vote!

Following up our earlier post, “O Where Art Thou iOS 5“, where we tracked funny and interesting tweets by people who were eagerly waiting for hours for the update to happen. Now that iOS 5 is officially out, below we have 3 polls to track reactions to the new operating system from download experience to how they find the new OS.

Download Experience

Those who attempted downloading in the first few hours of the release did get updates quite slowly but speeds have picked up since then. There were also issues of not being able to install the OS because of “internal server errors”, “3200” errors and possibly some others but it seemed to be temporary and on second/third attempts it usually worked. It was an inconvenience though.

Overall Satisfaction

As a result of the heavy load on Apple servers, there were quite a few failed installations but on repeated attempts they did get successful.

iOS 5 Update – The “O Where Art Thou” Reactions!

At the time of this writing, the iOS 5 has not launched as yet but it’s been fun following the various reactions over Twitter of people waiting keenly in anticipation for the new update. The launch time is rumoured to be either midnight PDT ( that didn’t happen 🙁 ) or 10 am PDT (The update’s available now! It became available shortly past 10 am PDT).  Will also do a follow up post about reactions post the update, that should also be interesting! (UPDATE: Follow up post is ready – Survey of Reactions to the new iOS 5)

Here are some of the better ones that I found, if you have any suggest them in the comments section below:

So these were some of the ones I found interesting enough to highlight. It’s wonderful to see so much interest and passion about the Apple brand and credit has to be given to the visionary Steve Jobs to have done everything he did to generate this level of excitment and enthusiasm about all his creations.

Find below a twitter stream keeping track of more mentions regarding iOS 5, you might catch a few more interesting ones there.
