    I decided it would probably be a good idea to start posting features we are missing based on the Full IOS5 update. Feel free to post here on what you have discovered isn't supported for your hardware.

    1st Gen iPad:
    ---------------------------------
    -Not able to purchase ringtones from iTunes store
    -No Location aware reminders
    -Multitouch Gestures, Including some that were supported in IOS4
    -No Siri

    iPad 2

    1 - Locations not working in Reminders.
    2 - Safari Reader missing
    3 - SIRI (which I guess it is iPhone 4s only)

    It's working also on mine now.
    For some reason - trying to reset everything to make the Locations in Reminders I realized that reader pops up now,

    Safari Reader is working for me also.
    Is there a way to change the reading page back to a regular page?

    On the Mac, you just clicked off of it, I don't see that function here.

    And will there be any speech to text functionality on the non 4S devices?

    I understand they want Siri for that but basic dictation should work on other devices.

    Keep the "best italian restaurant" jazz for the 4S, but let me dictate my text in my car.

    Can the gestures be switched on in Xcode for the fat pad, or not?

    Come on... that's crazy. I use them all the time. Make it a totally different experience. Anyone know if they are going to come back?

    Why would you buy a ringtone on an iPad?

    Maybe you need a 3G version for the GPS reminders???

    Suppose, but it was in an earlier beta, and at the end of the day i can usually get a pretty accurate location via wifi, thought it might suffice for this!

    That's ridiculous. It works fine on my iPad.

    In fact, I'm pretty friggin unhappy about that. Anyone have an email address to write to that actually gets listened to?

    In fact, part 2, it says nothing about multitouch being just ipad2 on the ios5 info pages on the apple website. It says "multitouch for iPad", so is it enabled for iPad1 or not?

    Perhaps you meant "multitasking gestures?"

    Huh? I'm talking about the pinch to home screen, 4 finger swipe for multitasking bar, and all that jazz.

    What are multitasking gestures then?

    I have an iPhone 4 but there is no Safari Reader in the browser? Is there an option to enable it as should be the same for both iPad and iPhone.

    Safari Reader is not a default thing. The website needs to be recognised as an article for the Reader icon to appear.

    You won't see it on this forum but if you head over to somewhere like dpreview and look at their camera reviews you will see the Reader icon appear in the address bar.

    It's definitely there on both the iPhone and iPad, it's up to the website as to whether you see it or not on their site.

    They added the ability to change the default ringtones for mail, twitter, imessage, etc.

    I realised this could be the answer a few hours after posting. I do have an apple tv2, but dont think theres an ios 5 GM for that? Guess il have to wait until next week to test it out.
