    It is interesting how people will turn on a dime...
    BEFORE a product release we hear about how long it is taking, what's the hold up, blah, blah, blah
    AFTER a product release we hear about how it was rushed to market without enough testing just to grab $$

    It will happen when Apple's ready and nothing else will influence them. They've got all the money already. There's no rush. The longer they let it go the more attention they get. It's win/win no matter what.

    Last time I checked a calendar September had 30 days. I also do not recall a time when Apple gave a release month and they did so on the very first day of that month. Typically when they give a month out it's toward the middle or, usually, end of the month. Do yourself a favor and do not expect it until Sep 30, then you won't be further disappointed.

    iOS 5.0 still hasn't had a GM yet. This version 7 fixed most of the issues I was having. I'm still predicting an October release.

    It's barely the 3rd and your complaining.

    People really need to learn to search, then go find the roadmaps for the last 4 beta release.

    Manufacturers typically project releases by seasons and every time that happens it's necessary to point out the actual dates of a season. As you imply, "fall" doesn't begin until September 22 and lasts until December 21. If it ain't here by New Year's, it's time to complain.

    impatient. I suggest you ease up counting the days until you get the next latest and greatest from apple and gain some perspective. I'll never get way threads like these consistently appear on any forum such as this only three days into the month. oh, right, impatience.

    Objectivity is a virtue. Yes, IOS 5 wil be amazing... when it get's here. Objectively speaking, 15 months for a new IOS release is a bit of a shaft for the consumer, specially at the pace technology is increasing. Some here say that fall can mean 12/21. Being Objective, as much as I love apple, waiting 18 months for a new release, or even 15 is just a bit crazy. This new os better be revolutionary and not just evolutionary. Being objective, they can not simply recycle the same os icons, sounds, UI and expect that because it's shuffled around along with some widgets, it's brand spanking new.

    Apparently its a virtue you lack.

    Fall doesn't change to winter until 12/21, that is not whimsical anonymous forum opinion.

    Many people are already running iOS5, Apple already publicly demoed how they have evolved the OS. It is after all version 5.0... No mystery or surprise there.

    Changing a perfectly functioning UI, and whimsically, randomizing UI element artwork such as icons would only disorient and frustrate users.

    I think the hype is going to your head...

    Apple is taking so long because they don't want the reviewers to point out how many "features" android or Phone7 has that they copied or worse yet don't have. With Apple suing for look & feel they have to make sure their take on all those features are original and "better", lest they be sued themselves now.

    I'm getting impatient as well... mainly because I have been spending a lot of time on my iPad lately and I desperately covet that split on-screen keyboard. :eek:

    Not everyone is a developer and for people like me, we don't cheat to use iOS5.

    Agree that it's only the beginning of September, but hoping for a release sooner rather than later!

    Whatch the Keynote, it's all over the place publicly available. New features are no mystery.

    Good for you?
    You don't have to 'cheat' to see the new features, the June WDCC keynote is publicly available, it shows all the features. Nothing is a mystery.
