Just wondering because there are so many little bugs.
Probably mid November to late December.
just guessing ????
With OTA delta updates, there could be 5.0.1, 5.0.2, etc.
There have been plenty of x.x.x updates in the past without OTA updates so I don't why it would be any different with OTA updates.
List of iOS updates for touch devices
with OTA it would be even easier for users and apple to update minor updates.
In the past the x.x.x updates were all full updates.
With delta updates, even if you don't choose to go OTA, you can download a 1000 byte update to fix one small bug...
Apple could update every day if they wanted...
i was thinking we would not see iOS 5.1 till around the same time as iPad 3?
Maybe not 5.1, but i imagine we could get a 5.0.1 very soon and simple now.
Once they release 5 and get most of the bugs worked out, a small fix could come out very easily, just like anything new there will be the improvements soon to follow.
Two off the top of my head:
Errors when I upload photos to contacts on iCloud.com. Errors on syncing to iCloud.
I guess they'll get a fix out in a very near future for the iPad2 smart-cover flaw (Link)

Will it make my display bigger?
Not really. There's this time-intensive thing called "testing and QA", which doesn't change with OTA updates.
adding the ability to delete from your photostream directly without having to wait 30 days would be sweet
Hope iOS 5.1 improves iMessages, with more control over group messages (i.e. turn notifications off).
Only bug I've noticed is if I take a photo, and then delete it, it still displays it when I go back into the camera (on the small preview of last taken photo). Quitting the camera app and reloading it clears it.
I'm really happy with how stable iOS 5.0 is, feels really solid. Only improvements I want are feature-based, not bug-based.
It would be nice if we didn't have to wait until 5.1 and that came with a 5.0.x release/
There are quite a few bugs in iOS 5 currently, so I would expect one sooner than later ( specifically improve Siri and fixing the damn super loud speaker after using it! )
Since a huge part of Siri is server based it might be possible for Apple to do that without any software modifications to the iPhone itself.
Except that OTA DELTA updates allow for very small patches that can easily go thru a unit test rather than a full system test due to the nature of the patch.
While that's certainly possible, I'd argue that it would only apply to non-GUI, lower-level code. Higher-level code typically has complex interactions that often preclude the use of unit testing for final QA purposes, although unit testing can (and should) be used for basic-to-moderate functionality testing.
If you're a software programmer, you'll understand how a "harmless one-line change" can sometimes cause all h*ll to break loose in seemingly unrelated and different parts of the code.
why is it always 5.x.x and not 5.x? i think my OCD is kicking in?
I've resorted to turning iCloud off in order to improve battery life. My iPhone 4S also gets very hot to the touch.
