iOS 5 Release Date: Now!
Update: iOS 5 is out now! You can download iOS 5 here or through iTunes.
Update 10/4/2011: Apple has announced that iOS 5 release date is October 12 as a free download, alongside iCloud.
iOS 5 is jam packed with new and awesome features, so when can you get your hands on it? Developers will get beta builds today, but the iOS 5 public release date is set for Fall of 2011. From the looks of it, it’s well worth the wait.
The next natural question is, what hardware is iOS 5 going to be compatible with?
- iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4
- iPad and iPad 2
- iPod Touch 3rd and 4th gen
Missing from the list is Apple TV2, but I suspect that will change in the near future. The other missing piece is the price, but considering a price wasn’t stated, I suspect it will be a free update.
Also, don’t miss Apple’s official Intro to iOS 5 video, it’s a good look at what to expect:
