Call me paranoid, but myself along with many other users have had no end of problems (particularly wifi greyed out and high random data allowance usage due to phone randomly running its own software updates as advised by O2) apple say I have to pay for a new handset, so before I do the latest update, has anyone suffered any issues and is there anything I should know about before it screws up my iPad too?

    Best way to find out is to update. So far the update has done nothing but improve the experience of millions of users. Some have complained - always have, always will.

    Thanks so no known issues on the iPad, like the iPhones?

    I don't know what is meant by "known issues." If you visit the iPad forum of these discussions you might get better responses. This is the iPhone section.

    I personally have had a couple of gripes about the new iOS, but they mainly have to do with the music app, not the OS itself.

    I wouldn't say its safe.

     

    I am sitting here stuck with the phone demanding I plug into iTunes.


    Yet you can't even download iTunes from iTunes.com right now.  Nothing downloads.

     

    There are support requests for that issue going back to Oct 2.   Still doesn't work.

     

    I don't have my phone backed up in iTunes, obviously.   Normal people use iCloud now.

     

    If your stuff is backed up in iCloud you are toast.  Just like me.

     

    Apparently apple forgot about iCloud with this update.  I am going to have to wipe my phone clean and figure out how to get my backup from iCloud later I guess.

     

    If I can figure out how to get a copy of iTunes software in the first place.

     

    Painfully obvious Apple has changed ...

    Sorry some reason I thought I had posted n the iPad section. By known issues I mean the numerous people who can't connect to wifi particularly affecting 4s AT&T the mo. Because of this and having suffered personally I didn't want to do anything to jeopardise my iPad

    I just downloaded the iTunes app in about one minute, so I don't know what you're on about.

     

    As to "normal" people only using iCloud instead of iTunes, you have no clue what you are talking about. You get a more complete backup whan you backup to iTunes.

    No issues showing at http://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/  as far as downloading anyhing from Apple.

     

    I think perhaps it may be a PEBCAK issue.
