    So who will be upgrading to iOS 5 on the 12th?

    In the past I've been quite cautious upgrading to the latest and greatest OS, but that was in my Windows days However, I've had more confidence since moving over to OSX and iOS. I've kept my iPhone and iPad up to date, and jumped on Lion the weekend after it was released, and not regretted doing so.

    IOS 5 is looking like a must have upgrade, and I'm keen to try it out ASAP. However, my iPhone and iPad are very precious beasts and I'm equally nervous about jumping in with both feet.

    I'm away on business next week, so will probably not be upgrading on the 12th, and this will also allow me to check the forums to see how others have been getting on with the upgrade process.

    Sooooo......who on here will be jumping on the iOS 5 gravy train on the 12th, and who, like me, will let others test the water first?

    I've never had a problem with any early OSX or iOS upgrades but with so many users now I will probably wait a while simply because the servers are going to be inundated.

    I will be updating - after a full backup, of course.
    Signatures? We don't need no stinkin' signatures!

    I'm not quite that sure I will be getting one right away...

    I have been testing the iOS 5 for the last 4-5 months or so, and I am not really all that jazzed up with getting one right out of the gate.
    Already using iOS 5 , so, really what's the real hurry??
