    I'm so glad Apple decided to do this, to be honest I didn't expect to see this on the iPad 1 without modifying the OS. Ever.

    The update is only available to developers at the moment but should hit the streets in a matter of days.

    Thought I'd share my happiness :)

    I've installed iOS 5.0.1 on my iPhone 4 and it's running well, I've used my phone a lot more than normal today with both calls and data etc so I couldn't pass any judgment on improved battery life.

    When the release comes to the general public it will be the first time everyone (non beta testers) use over the air updates. We will see problems and issues over that.

    During beta testing I had good luck with OTA updates. Never had one problem.

    You're probably right. I expect it to work better than the release of iOS 5. They shouldn't have released it at a stupid time in the US. They should have made it available while you guys were asleep so the rest of the world could play catch up.

    As daft as it sounds, not that many people will jump on iOS 5.0.1 apart from those with battery issues - mainly because they want their iOS 5 un-tethered jailbreak.

    When do you think 5.0.1 would be released to the public?
    For the iPhone.

    I don't think the .x updates like this one will cause problems. Their file sizes are typically under 200MB and a lot of 'normal' users who don't follow the tech press day in and day out aren't even aware of updates immediately. I don;t think the jailbreakers holding off makes much difference, given that jailbreakers account for something like 10% or less of users.

    So it appears I owe you that wink back.
    Anyone know if the beta has issues and that's why we haven't seen a general release yet?

    No beta issues for me. Beta 2 seems to have better battery control.

    I don't know what this post means, are you asking me a question or being rhetorical?
