OTA doesn't seem to be working on my iPad 2.... It is still on v. 5.0 as of this post (I am typing the post on my iPad 2).

I'm glad idevice users can finally update OTA. It took a long um..... 4 years I think to get this nice feature. I wish my ipod 80gb could update like this. Hell I wish apple would allow u to sync to more then 1 computer without erasing all my music.

Hmmm...at least iOS actually gets updates. Last time I checked most manufacturers stops supporting their Android phones in less than a year...

Let's see how many people can take a joke...

Jeff, that wasn\'t a joke...it was a shot. But isn\'t multi gesture for the iPad supposed to be in this version. Been eyeing that feature for about a year now and I\'m getting antsy. Pretty cool feature so it\'s worth the wait, but com\'on!

OTA iOS 5.0.1 downloaded into my iPod4.....all went smoothly.

OTA .....very fast and easy.....good feature of Apple products.

If Apple is generous enough to update every available technology, eg SIri, to all adaptable sets..... Apple will be unbeatable.

Yeah, it is. It baffles me why Android OEMs havent figured out how to make a camera that can compare with the iPhone's camera. They're decent cameras but why not go that extra mile?

I will admit the My Touch camera surprised me, and I'm glad to see the Amaze is about equal. But I would like to see these kinds of improvements across the bord as far as 8MP shooters are concerned.

Just tried to get the update in the UK OTA to be told i need a wi-fi connection!! Being wi-fi the update is over the internet and nowhere near a real OTA download using your carrier as so many other phone companies do

Pop up came up on my phone yesterday and it let me download and update without asking to plug into a power supply...
Have to say that I am noticing the battery lasting much longer so far!
