    Patience is a virtue. Just finished installing the full release of 5.0.1 and there are the multi touch gestures on iPad 1 for all to play with. The wireless update feature is fantastic compared to the old days as well. Enjoy!

     

    Wonder what conspiracy theory will crop up next...and wonder how many folk in this thread who threatened to bin their iPads for alternatives actually did. Not many I'd guess. Biting off nose to spite face isn't really such a good idea   .

    Fourteen pages of comments by a few outraged users posting three or four times a day just to keep the thred alive. Take a hard look at those "14 pages" and count the unique responses minus the replies by idiots like me who attempt to argue against the conpsiracy theories conjured up in this thread.

     

    Proving that it doesn't take much more than persistence to get Apple to blink on some issues.

    No thats incorrect if i understand what you are saying.

    Ive used the betas from ios 5 and there were no  MTG from the begining since beta 1

    So i think that from the begining they didnt had the intention to add them.

    I installed ios 5.0.1 and i am very happy that apple added the MTG.

    But did also solved the issue with the ram because i noticed with 5.0 that when am runing to much

    programms at the same time it hangs sometime but also that games or even simply playing piano it hangs i think

    that this has to do with ram because i didnt updatet to ios 5.0.1 but did a clean install i do not had the time to test so does anyone know or they solved it??

    anyway i do not bother because i dont use my ipad for heavy progams or games am just wondering.

     

    regards Luca

    I installed ios 5.0.1 but can't get the multitasking gestures to work. Is there something I'm missing?

     

    Thanks!

    In settings, general, there is a switch to enable the gestures.

    That worked, thank you!

    Just go to Settings, General, & Multasking, turn it on.

    For the last couple years, anytime I see an update, I automatically come here first.

    I will not update my ipad1.

     

    Close to 60,000 views with OS5 & Ipad1.

    Granted some have found a work around, the "slow and crashing" nonsense.

    I bet Apple sends you all $100 worth of iTunes just for the hassle.

    Since I begain using Apple products I have never skipped an update and have never had problems. I guess technology just hates you.

    Never a problem in 6 years till lately.

    The point, and the case with 60,000 views, or 6 million, maybe you missed it,

    was/is other peoples problem, not mine this time coming here first to simply check is the point.

    A major handshake should of been in place to omit iPad1's this round.

     

    Your iPad 2 was made for the OS5 update by defaiult, not the iPad1's.

    So that's roughly 6 months using Apple products. Any reason to stay at 10.6.8 on your iMac?

    I have to agree, with only an iPad2 & iMac, not much to go wrong.

     

    A handy tip,

    If heading on tour to Europe,

    It's not a good time to click Ok updating a 3Gs iPhone prior to flight.

    Might not have time before flight to solve a dead phone.  Just the facts headsup.
