Looks like everyone is getting the error (lots on Twitter too)

If you upgraded successfully, did you have the newest iTunes version and most current iOS4 version?

Good thing I didn't upgrade! The only wire I have won't work, so I didn't upgrade last night.

I'm a dope, because I would have done it and I'm one of the people that tells everyone to wait to d/l new software until the bugs are worked out, LOL.

Upgraded just fine with iTunes 10.5.

Edit: and latest iOS4 software.

I wonder if those that got errors didn't upgrade to iTunes 10.5? You should get a pop up when you start iTunes that there's a new version available. I only did it because I hadn't used iTunes in a while and wanted to see if there was an update. However I think I would have anyway because I've learned from past experience that sometimes not updating can cause problems.

My update on my iP4 was fine, it's my iPad killing me. But I suppose they're hammered at the moment.

iPhone update worked (but took maybe 2.5 hours to update and restore everything), but the iPad failed. After 15-20+ attempts, the upgrade finally worked, and my iPad is currently restoring apps (which will be followed by restoring music & videos -- this will probably take another 3+ hours, but at least the difficult firmware upgrade is done).

Apple's servers are currently horribly overloaded, and the upgrade process requires that they be contacted (in addition to downloading the upgrade). If iTunes has trouble talking to Apple's servers, the upgrade is going to fail. There's nothing that you can really do about this, except wait and retry.

I was getting a restore error or internal error, or something like that. I downloaded the new Mac update 10.7.2 and installed it. Tried to install the ios5 update again and it failed again with the same internal error message. Then I just went to back to the basics, i turned off my iPad, turned it back on, made sure it was unlocked (in the home screen) and then clicked update. It backed up pretty quickly and then it did its thing. try doing all of those steps. I am not sure which one did the trick.

Guys, does all your App's settings/configuration/saved data remain after you upgrade to iOS 5?

Anyone having time out issues? There's no error or anything, just says timed out. Anyone know of possible causes?

It's probably the usual Apple server timeout.

After a couple tries, I ended up restoring and than updating to os5 and that seemed to do the trick.

My iPhone 4 upgraded without any issues, from iOS 4.3.5. Will do the iPad 2 in the morning.

Updated my iPhone 4 during work quickly with no problems. Trying to update my iPad 2 now and it's extremely slow. I've also tried to move my MobileMe account to iCloud all day but it keeps giving me an error message.

No worries... I can wait.

iPhone 4 and 3rd gen iPod touch updated no problems from jailbroken what I think was 4.3.3.

Didn't want to make a new thread, but what is the default iOS 5 layout ( on home screen) supposed to look like?
