I was burnt by the ios update on my iphone 3G a year ago, it made it slow and unusable for a very long time, eventualy I gave up on it. Is this going to happen to Ipad1 when we install IOS5? Will Apple make Ipad 1 redundant on purpose and push us all into buying Ipad2 or Ipad3?

 

I have a bad feeling about this and its not as if we have much choice.

    No reason that there should be any problem as iOS5 is compatible with both iPad models.

    How about waiting until iOS 5 is released and people see how it performs on the iPad 1 before pushing the panic button? I'm sure there will be many people willing to jump in and who will post their experiences. You can wait to upgrade until you're satisified it will be worthwhile.

     

    Regards.

    You have the choice not to upgrade to iOS 5, nobody is forcing you to do so - if you don't update your iPad won't suddenly stop working. If you're concerned by the effect that it might have, then don't upgrade on the first day and wait to see what other people report about it first.

    You do not have to update the iOS if you don't want to do so. Obviously you will miss out on the new features that will be available in iOS 5, but you do have a choice to not update.

     

    I have installed every update, every time there was one available - and I've never had any problems with regard to the iPad being unusable. I have had a couple of minor issues, but they were of my own making - corrupt data - which I have solved with a restore and by deleting some apps - that more than likely were responsible for the corrupt data.

    Why do you feel you don't have a choice?

    That's pretty much why I've been delaying my Lion update.  I think that, with iCloud becoming real, I just might do it next week when I update my iPad to IOS-5.

     

    Of course, Lion is a special case.  I had to wean myself from the PPC applications that I had been using.

    every update is recommended and every app will be updated to work specifically with IOS 5 (especially the new ones) and we get pestered constantly by the ios updates. Its not really as if its optional. Slightly different to a computer update

    I have no problems with my Ipad 1 but I dont want a repeat of my Iphone 3G experiance. How Lion was launched is not a good prelude for the IOS5 launch. just saying...

  • Demo Level 10 Level 10 (82,390 points)

    Not to go further OT - but Lion has been put on my back burner as well - PPC applications being part of it and the other being that I'm getting close to buying a new computer anyway, (can't make up my mind which way I want to go - iMac or a MBA) so I'll pass my current MacBook onto my wife, and she pretty much knows how to navigate with SL so I don't want to muck things up for her at this point. :)

    Sure it's optional. Just don't update the apps. It's your choice. If the developer chooses to release a version of their app that requires iOS 5, that's the developer's choice and is no different from any operating system/appliation upgrade. You still have the choice not to accept the update, recommended or not.

     

    Again, how about we wait and see how iOS 5 actually works before we get our knickers in a knot about it?

     

    Regards.

    You must realistically know its near impossible to use and IOS device without the latest software for that specific device, we have to be pragmatic about these things.

     

    This time I will wait a bit..."once burned twice shy"

  • n3nto Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    I answered above (king Penguine) but I think its a problem to not have the latest software on a IOS device.

    I know no such thing. I have as well as support multiple iOS devices, and many have gone quite a while without being updated.

  • n3nto Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    yea im sure your happy with the constant reminders to update your software and the hundreds of apps that are requesting updates. This and the inability to update the apps you really and trully need. Im sure it makes for a very functional device.
