Apple publicly launches iOS 5

A few minutes ago Apple publicly launched iOS 5 . Remember that in order to use it, you will need to download version 10.5 of iTunes

The launch has been as planned: Wednesday 12th October (around 19:00 Spanish peninsular time, as we are used to by Apple). To update the device, we only have to connect it to our computer, and select it within iTunes. In case you don’t receive the alert of new firmware version available, you just have to click on the update button .
