IOS 5 Musings

October 5, 2011

Yesterday Apple announced that IOS 5 will be released on Oct. 12.

Today the Golden Master (GM) can be downloaded from the web by anyone along with iTunes 10.5.

It seems to me that Apple is basically getting a week of free testing by the iPhone power users around the world. They have had 100,000 developers banging on IOS 5 for a while now and there will probably be a few million early adopters by tonight.  Those early adopters will find issues and write about them on their blogs and all Apple has to do is browse the web and identify issues that they deem worthy of fixing. Brilliant!
