    In line with Apple's announced schedule calling for a release today, iOS 5 is now available to download for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch users. Users can obtain the update by connecting their devices to iTunes and clicking the "Check for Update" button. It may take a few minutes for the update to propagate to all users, however.

    iOS 5 brings more than 200 new features, including Notification Center, iMessage, Newsstand, Reminders, and systemwide Twitter integration.

    iOS 5 is compatible with the iPad 2, original iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and third- and fourth-generation iPod touch. It will also ship on the iPhone 4S, which launches on Friday. An iOS 5-based version of the Apple TV software, labeled software version 4.4, is also available.

    1. Please can someone confirm if Gestures are iPad2 only?

    2. If iTunes sync works with shared wifi from MacBook or iMac [AdHoc]?

    Thanks

    Downloading now... :)

    Took a few presses in iTunes to get it to start the update process however, at first it kept seeing 4.3.5 as up to date.

    So keep trying peeps.

    Sweet! Now all I need is for Apple to let me pre-order my iPhone 4S over here in the Netherlands and I'm a happy camper.
