Here’s an interesting tidbit about iOS 5 - it may roll out in just a couple of days, on September 22nd.
A posting on Apple Developer boards says that Apple is about to reset iCloud Backup data that very Thursday, suggesting that iOS 5 is close to going “golden master,” which is the Apple way to refer to a release candidate version.
Here’s what the post reads:
Up until now, only devs could access iCloud and if you’re a developer it seems like a good idea to back up your data as soon as possible.
Of course pin-pointing the exact release date of the platform is a fun guessing game, but no one can say for sure when the company will release the fifth iterations of iOS, expected to come with the next-gen iPhone. The latter - most sources agree on - is about to land late-September/mid-October, which is just around the corner now. Are you still holding up on a phone purchase in anticipation for the iPhone 5?
