I know I said I was going to avoid talking about the iPhone event today but I couldn’t help myself and decided I would write up a quick blurb. In any case I’m pretty certain that I will not be rushing to upgrade to iOS 5 on October 12th which is the release date that Apple has slated.
I approach new firmware and software with a bit of caution because I know that regardless of how much beta testing occurs there will always be bugs in a initial public release. As such I do not feel it is intelligent to upgrade a smartphone the day of a new release because in this day and age phones have data caps and if some weird loop bug or other defect occurred it could result in the consumer paying a significant cost.
Anyways, I think I will likely wait a week or maybe just a day until I hear from the masses what the initial bugs are.
Will you be upgrading your iPhone to iOS 5?
