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:


Every time a person clicks “Check for Update” in iTunes, the ghost of Steve Jobs delays by one second. Retweet this!

Got my popcorn ready for the big wave of disappointment when everyone realizes #iOS5 isn’t coming out at midnight. Retweet this!

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.
