The iOS 5 has been released to iOS developers for months and I really love the update. Apple has just announced in the Let's Talk iPhone event that the iOS 5 will be available to general users on Oct 12.

As usual, the update is free for download and you can update it via iTunes. The iOS 5 will support the following devices including:

  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPad
  • iPad 2
  • iPod touch (3rd/4th Generation)

According to Apple, the iOS 5 includes over 200 enhancements. The new notification centre, camera shortcut, Wi-Fi sync, Twitter integration are some of the important features to come with the update. To more about iOS 5, you can check out some of our earlier posts:

As a final note for jailbreaker or those who depend on ultrasn0w unlock, please hold off the upgrade even iTunes prompts you on Oct 12.
