Should I restore my iPhone as new or will be ok to just update? I do have a lot of apps and info on my phone. What would be best?

Assuming you're not jailbroken, you should be just fine to upgrade.

My method is to do a complete restore when a new iOS comes out (i.e. iOS 4 to iOS 5). I use the update when going to a new version of the same iOS (i.e. 4 to 4.1).

If your jailbroken and want to stay that way, I would not upgrade to the new iOS until the jailbreak is released. One the new JB is released, I would still restore, install the new OS then JB.

Thanks for the replies everybody! I'm not jailbroken.

I really don't want to have to do a full restore cause I don't want to loose all my progress with all my games I have. I did just delete a bunch of apps that didn't have data connected to them. Hopefully it will go smooth but if not looks like I might go ahead and do a full restore.

There's no reason you should need to do that.

I'm sure your right. Although I did have a lot of apps on my phone and the last time I restored from backup it took forever lol. So maybe by me deleting some apps it will just speed up the update. I had like 140 something apps and now I'm down to 40 something.

This might already be out there somewhere but do we know if it will be an OTA update or wired until iOS5 is actually installed?

Im looking forward to the delta updates. Instead of having to d/l a 500mb file they can push OTA file changes to the handheld. That'll be cool.

Indeed. I was just hoping the iOS5 upgrade was going to be OTA since I'll be at work all day tomorrow and won't want to wait until after 5 to get it on my phone. My library on my work LT is not the same as home so I'll have to sync those up tonight.

oh it is tomorrow isn't it? Well glad I decided to streamline my phone some more
syncing as we speak with iTunes
I wonder how specific our updates will be ?
I update from BETA and have a few devices
at the moment I decided to back up in cloud and in iTunes
I do a long needed overhaul of all devices we have.
Everyone will be set as their own cloud ID and name but hooked to one iTunes account

Yep - tomorrow's the day. I'm interested to see how it will run on the 3GS...
