Apple has released iOS 5, the newest version of its mobile OS, to the public today. The iPhone & iPad maker claims over 200 new features in the iOS5 including deep Twitter integration, a revamped notification system, an updated camera app, a revamped version of Safari and more.
If you trying to upgrade to iOS 5 via iTunes today, there’s a high chance that it could fail. You’re not alone. Reports of problem with the iOS 5 upgrade flooded Apple’s support forum today.
Users said they encountered installation errors after iTunes downloaded the update and backed up the device. The problem is occurring because there are too many people trying to access Apple’s servers at the same time.
iPhone and iPad owners reported a variety of error messages, and many said they had tried to upgrade to iOS 5 multiple times, from different computers running iTunes and to numerous devices, all without success.
One of the error message users might get is “Error 3200″. Apple’s service reps are telling multiple users that this error is something they’re working on, and add that there is nothing users can do to change that error code.
A few people also claimed that their attempts to upgrade to iOS 5 had “bricked” their iPhones, making them unusable.
