iOS5 – Keep Calm and Carry On

by Patrick Gervais

Hey there,

So Apple is releasing the new iOS5 on Wednesday and although very tempting to upgrade I think I’ll wait a little to see if there are any issues. There have been in the past and I expect certain apps to stop working and perhaps other glitches as well. It’s very easy to get caught up in the media hype, especially Apple hype that always makes the headlines, and feel like you NEED this new iWhatever.  I’ve been guilty of jumping on the upgrade bandwagon before and wish I hadn’t. I never had any serious issues just small annoying things like an application that no longer works. But Apple makes it easy to want this upgrade considering it will cost zero dollars and has over 200 new features, thanks Apple.

The Life in LoFi website has a great searchable app compatibility grid here that you should check out. It should be updated soon after the iOS5 update.

Anyway for me I’ll be patient and wait a little. Makes me think of that saying? Keep Calm and Carry On

Thanks for reading, Patrick

    Hi, Patrick!

    Thanks for the mention! I’ve already started to indicate iOS 5 compatibility based on info from developers. Once I DL the update, I’ll be checking apps myself for compatibility — starting with the App Store Top 50 Photo Apps.

    Have you upgraded since this post? I’m still on the fence considering how upgrading to 4 slowed my old iPhone3 down so drastically. Very happy with the 4 on iOS4 so far.

      Yes I upgraded to iOS5 and no issues so far.

        Nice! OK, man, I think I’m gonna take the plunge. Once I do a long-overdue backup, that is. ;)

        Great idea, also be ready for a lengthy process. I can’t remember exactly how long it took but it is considerable.
