    When you plug your iPod into iTunes, it'll notify you that there is an update. Just follow the steps, its all free.

    I'm trying out the GM version of iOS 5. So far I am impressed - things run very fast and smooth and the new features are nice.

    I have one problem and that is the camera feature. It works well. From the sleep mode I can double click the home button to quickly access the camera and even use the volume button to take pictures, which is very handy. However this feature is making me curse the suckiness of the iPod Touch camera even more. :(

    If you buy it from an Apple store it will. The big box stores will be selling old inventory so then you would have to update it yourself. While most updates run just fine we do see stories about people having problems updating so at this point I would tell people if they want a new Touch to order it from Apple for the next few weeks. Also that way if there are any hidden changes you will not have to worry about getting them.
    I'm disappointed with what we have apparently been given but I do hold out hope that at least the new Touch will have 512Mb Ram in it. We should know by Wednesday from Ifixit. That would be enough for me to buy it.

    :rolleyes:
    Why is it that I get the impression you are an apple employee trying to do damage control on the Touch?

    Very, very unlikely. There is no new touch, except for a new white version of the 4th generation.

    Dude you are repeating features from a year to several years ago.

    Has to be.
