Update 1:

Here you go! As promised, below are the direct download links to iOS 5 firmware (.IPSW) files:

Its finally here folks, the much awaited iOS 5 has just been released to everyone and is available for update via iTunes 10.5. As you all pretty much know by now, iOS 5 is a major firmware update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that adds over 200 new user features including Notification Center, iMessage, iCloud support and PC Free. To download and install the new software on your iOS device, connect it to iTunes via USB and “Check for Updates” in the device’s info screen.

We will post direct links to the iOS 5 download as soon as Apple makes them available. Stay tuned!

  • Rad

    I had the iOS 5 update screen for 2 min, then it reverted back and still says the current version 4.3.5 is the latest.  mine is a 1 gen ipad.

  • I just posted all the download links from Apple’s site, but it has to be approved by a moderator.

  • Anonymous

    Mines done updating now!

  • 5jh5

    I wonder why

  • Rad

    download started, must be temporary 

  • Argonsoleil

    try it again.  my first one just didn’t ‘take’ the first time, but the 2nd time it actually started (and is still) downloading 

  • Jarndt08

    My iTunes keeps freezing @ Back up 🙁 Done downloading though 🙂

  • Is this identical to the 5.0GM ??

  • Rogertwr55

    Mine’s been stuck at 3 hours remaining for 10 minutes. LOL

  • Rogertwr55

    0.1 MB’s!  D_oh…

  • Rad

    download has been iterrupted more than 3 times now. the last one stopped at 399.00 MB

  • Rogertwr55

    Damn! Now it went from 3 hours to 5. I can’t be without my iP4 after 5pm, it’s now 1:45. I *thought* I gave Apple a good window of time. Will I brick my phone if I unplug when I leave at 5pm?

    Make sure you’ve updated iTunes to the newest update

  • roadcarver

    I have the iOS 5 GM.  I tried to do an update via “check for update” and iTunes reports that my iPhone 4 has the latest update.  Could it be that the GM is the same as the public release?

    Ya, I did that yesterday.

  • Rogertwr55

    Perhaps I just right click on it and Open with iTunes?

  • Jdutch101

    You would have to downgrade to 4.x.x version to see the official update. Big Boss covered this on his blog. 

  • primetyme123

    it been saying contacting the iPhone update server forever anyone else have that?

  • Jan

    Shift – Restore in iTunes (10.5!), select downloaded IPSW, and there you go!

  • Itwasmagic_card

    ive downloaded this twice, first opened and second time saved it on my desktop. when i open it Itunes opens, but that’s about it. when my phones plugged in it askes me if i want to download it from itunes directly, even though i have it on my desktop!!! where should i move the file to, someone help i want my message notifications screen already!!!!!

    thanks a lot

  • no! you should be downloading the iPod4,1… you downloaded the firmware intended for the iPhone 3GS!

  • Jan

    Yes it has got the exact same version number, so it’s not mandatory to update. 

  • primetyme123

    It keeps saying contacting the iPhone update server forever does anybody else have that problem or what does it mean?

  • primetyme123

    does anybody get contacting the iPhone software update server?

    Why there are 3 versions for iPad2?  Can someone explain?

    Download iOS 5 For iPad 2 (iPad 2,2 & iPad 2,3)

  • Dennisgeee

    everyone has the same problem

  • slav

    Well itunes is garbage as always. Just downloaded the whole update twice, then when it’s processing the file it times out and I need to do it over again.

    If i download from the link above, how exactly would I go about installing the update>

  • Or just shift restore to the public release. MUCH easier. 

  • asdmd

    Working fine for me, took about 9 min total

  • Dvdeee

    ok got it!

    2,1 is wifi only, 2,2 is GSM, 2,3 is CDMA

  • Kraken

    Question is, how long will it be for the untethered Jailbreak 😉

  • techdaft

    Downloaded for iPad in about 25 min

  • xxJDxx

    Is anyone else noticing text entry seems to be very laggy since installing iOS 5? It’s driving me nuts!!

  • Kraken

    Yeah, it’s extremely slow.  Took me whole 5 mins to download at 2.5MB/s.

  • Gustavoslait

    Works fine on my ipad 2 and iphone. imessage just amazing, say bye to bbm

  • Ldrover

    Download went fine. Prepared my iphone 4 for backup. Went OK. Started backup. Reported an error. Choice to continue and lose all contents of phone or cancel. Obviously, I cancelled.

    No actually. “iPhone 3,1” is the iPhone 4 GSM.

  • jt

    my imessage msgs aren’t going through :S…i’m testing it out by sending it to myself since none of my friends are on ios5 yet!

  • Ldrover

    Just tried to update my Apple TV. Download went fine. At the end of Step 1 in Preparing Update, reported that Update Was Not Successful.

  • Yamadorishitate

    Did you turn off your antivirus? I found that I need to do that with any itunes update.

  • James Hayes

    Hey, I’m having problems too. I was on the iOS 5 beta for Apple TV, so it says I’m up to date, but also won’t let me restore because “Apple TV can’t download the latest update right now. Try again later.”

    Let me know if you are successful.

  • Hkjhkh

    I do, it’s been on that pop up for at least an hour now…so I’m not sure how long its gonna take.

  • casablanca9

    Anyone? Cant even get past the cant find connection part.

  • Vojinovic

    Can we safely update from jailbroken 4.3.1 (version 03.10.01) on iPhone 4 without risk for further jailbreak?
    many thanks,

    I wanna experience it first when I get my

  • Topsy

    Hi! Can anyone who’s just installed iOS 5, please verify that on an iPhone 4, in Settings/General/Software Update, an error message reading “Unable to Check for Update. An error occurred while checking for a software update.” message pops up with “Cancel” or “Try Again” buttons?  I have the GM installed and wanted to know if the release version is doing this as well.  THANKS GUYS! HAPPY Apple day!

  • IPhonatik

    So much for an immediate release, eh?

  • Nilsej

    Pls turn on your antivirus off for the time being and then download.

  • Nilsej

    Before u gone mad pla turn off your antivirus and then download.

  • Penfield

    k, i keep getting error 3200, unable to restore…what am i doing wrong??

  • Doobi42

    Apple fail. Error 3200. Apparently its server can’t handle all the requests. Here’s an idea: DON’T CHECK BACK WITH YOUR STUPID APPLE SERVER BEFORE UPDATING.

  • Scoogs

    My update keeps freezing during the backup, and then cuts to giving me an error saying the iPhone could not be restored.

    Getting annoying, now.

  • FlyBoy88

    I keep getting this also

  • Srankin

    Just spoke to Apple support line… servers are completely overloaded so many people are getting error messages… a bit frustrating to say the least!  They told me to try later….. like 2 days from now! Seriously…..

  • Derk181

    anyone getting error 3200

  • Darryllaw

    There are some other post on here suggesting that it could be server overload. That’d make sense I guess.

  • Jarndt08

    I’m on iPhone 4 just updated to iOS 5 and when I go to settings>general>software update it says “iOS 5 Your Software Is Up To Date”

  • Ericmcdace

    If you hold the home and sleep wake button together until you see the connect to iTunes logo you can restore to iOS 5. so if you backup then restore its kinda like a manual update. it worked for me after getting this error twice

  • Jsnides

    has anyone downloaded the .IPSW they can send me. The download doesn’t start when I click on it. If someone can upload it somewhere it would really help! thanks.

  • Jarndt08

    Mine won’t say the persons name at the top of the conversation just says thei phone number. But if I go back to the screen where it lists all of my
    Conversation it says the persons name… Any ideas?

  • Derk181

    THE 3200 ERROR is a server error. Apple is getting slammed. Wait and wait some more ……………..

  • Cake

    The web browser is blazing fast for ip4on wifi.

  • garin_c

    this is happening to me too

  • Derk181

    Those goofs at apple and the fken servers.  the 3200 error came up after it installed halfway then itunes did a “verify” and it crashed my phone i now have to do a recovery

  • iPhone lover

    I GOT IT!!!! It works!!!!!!!!!! :)))) sooooo cool!!!  Took two hours to download to computer then another couple of tries before it got to phone…. i restarted my phone comletely before trying to restore tho then it worked… not sure if that was a deciding factor or not…

  • garin_c

    mine goes reaaaaaally slow at backup… then gives me an error msg

  • Ldrover

    My phone is now stuck in recovery mode. Any idea how to recover?

  • Ios 5 Done

    download it in 1:34:52 now installing it 🙂

  • xxJDxx

    So, just as I suspected, I’m having constant problems with wifi sync. Just like the remote App, it seems to work sometimes, be working fine, then just stop working in the midst of doing something. Then start working again for no apparent reason without me changing anything. 

    Anyone else having this problem?

  • xxJDxx

    No such luck. Restarted and its still there. Its not bad at first but once you get past the first sentence and your typing with any speed it lags behind by 4-10 characters. SUPER ANNOYING

  • Whatabumbum

    mine’s given me an error message 5 times.  anybody else get error 3200?

  • unhappyiphone4

    I got interrupted and given the 3200 error. I tried to restore my phone but now it won’t restore and I’m getting the 3004 error. I tried holding the two buttons but that didn’t do anything. You’d think Apple would have planned for this. Now I’m without a phone….

  • Colinmcbride2000

    Try turning off firewall, rebooting, then restore. Worked for me. Using ios5 now!

  • Zilly

    ME TOO DID YOU FIGURE IT OUT???? oops caps

  • Chris

    This is a great. Thank you. On a side note…

    I have an iPhone 3GS on one of my lines that will be 2 years old on the first week of November and Rogers wants to charge me $209 + $90 early upgrade fee + $35 HUP. What is with that?

  • Dzampi

    what do you mean Shift – Restore in iTunes? is this for Mac?

  • Jarndt08

    Does anyone who upgraded have access to the camera on their lock screen? I dont and neither do any of my friends…

  • Ex

    Option – Restore for Mac

  • Med86

    try double clicking your home button

  • guest

    My iPhone is not jailbroken…is it safe to upgrade with this .ipsw link???

  • Jan

    No, not specifically for mac. Works also on PC.

    Connect your iPhone to your PC / Mac. Go to you’re iPhone in iTunes (10.5). Hold down shift en click the restore button. It lets you browse for the IPSW – select it and it’ll install iOS5 on your iDevice.

  • Braiden1995

    Where is the camera shortcut on the lockscreen??? 

  • Jarndt08

    Thanks! Didn’t know that.

  • DoctorT

    Doubly click the home button on the lockscreen.

  • Zilly

    is anyone else getting erroer -37 while backing up? (continuing will result in the loss of all contents) ??????

  • jake

    meeeee wtf

  • syuyu

    hey guys anyone know to fix the hang and/or freeze during backup that results in an error message telling me if i continue my phone will be wiped?

  • Zilly

    this is facking stupid

  • Rls2289

    same here have you found a solution for this yet?
     

  • SF

    do a clean install.

  • xxJDxx

    Has anyone tried wifi sync yet? and can verify that its working properly?

  • xxJDxx

    What do you mean by clean install? like restore to factory settings??

    i have to manually add all my music AGAIN?!

  • Soon to be post iOS user.

    I can’t even download the OS, not from any of your fucked links, or from my iTunes directly.  No restore, no update, can’t the the ispw for a manual install..  THE FUCK?  Thanks apple, your servers suck harder than the last episode of tosh.o.  Android here I come.

  • aNL

    I already finished downloading it, how do I install it now??? Anybody?

  • Michael ASK

    What’s the difference between the iPad 2, the iPad 2,2 and the iPad 2,3?  Are they just 3 links or are there 3 versions of the iPad (or are those wi-fi, GSM, and CDMA links?)

  • Davidantortiz

    After the download what do you do?!

  • Michael ASK

    Open iTunes, plug your i-device in using your cable, and if it pops up to update, click cancel.  Once you’ve clicked on your device in the left-hand column, hold down Alt/Option and click Restore.  It will ask you if you’re sure and mention that it will erase everything.  As long as you’ve done a recent backup (if you haven’t, just click cancel, eject and unplug your device, then reattach, sync, THEN do the alt/option click restore), you will be fine.  It WILL pull your apps and all the goodies form your last backup. 
    I’m currently doing this on my iPhone 4… and soon to do on my iPad.  I just hope the first iPad link works because I still have no clue what the iPad 2,2 and 2,3 links are for!

  • Michael ASK

    See my reply to Davidantortiz

  • Michael ASK

    I understand you’re pissed off, but why are his links “fucked links?”  The iPhone 4 one works just fine for me.  It downloaded in under an hour, compared to the 9 hours that iTunes was estimating! 

    Trust me, Android is no better.  Hell, they’re even copying Apple now with the “no need to tether” thing on one of their newer phones! At least Apple supports their iOS software!  While I LOVE Google, they offer the software as-is as each manufacturer tweeks it ever so slightly.  And since 99.9% of the manufacturers are not in the US, good luck getting someone to help you!  If you’re on AT&T, you’ll deal with highly underpaid customer service reps straight out of high school that do NOT know what they’re doing. Trust me, I was a call-center manager! 

    Anyway, I really do wish you the best of luck!  I hope you’re able to update and love the update! 

  • Michael ASK

    This is perfectly fine and not unusual.  You want it to be wiped, remember… you’re updating!  And this is a completely new animal, not just a minor update!  I speak from experience having just gotten that pop-up and clicked OKAY (or whatever the prompt is to continue), and everything worked just fine!

  • Michael ASK

    See my note to syuyu right above yours (if you sort in order)

  • Michael ASK

    Doubly click. I love it!  (Instead of double-click)

  • syuyu

    are you completely sure? because i did backup all my music and other stuff just in case but i honestly thought this meant it would wipe absolutely everything, contacts and notes included

  • Pherman

    TVM Michael!!!! your advice is great and worked for me to get out of my iPad@c70090e1b24d78e716ee4db65abaee61:disqus  crash and burn situation. After a sleepless night and now proud in the (i)Cloud!.
    It also helped that i downloaded the IOS5 installer directly in iTunes. So i had not to log in to the overburdend Aple servers

  • Pherman

    download the IOS 5 system software from above link and install directly from iTunes on your puter.
    really worked for me.

  • Niffysha

     hi michael, shud i open the downloaded file and then open itunes and follow the rest of the steps u ve mentioned or does it open automatically.

  • Dialogueouvert

    Does anyone know how to get your apps back? My ios 5 download worked fine but all of my apps are gone!

  • Once I download the soft from the link above, how do I move it to iTunes? Double-clicking wont’ do it. Thanks.

  • Anonymous

    Hey, i have been trying to do this update since it came out and i have been at the computer. Is this the FULL SOFTWARE APPLE? I cant download iOS i get a error=-3259 because the download times out. does these downloads include iMessage, iCloud, and all the things from apple?

    Thanks. That helped.

    iTunes was giving me errors though so I wanted to use the other file

  • Nicole

    You don’t need to double click it. Open iTunes on your computer with your device plugged in while it is in DFU Mode. If you have Windows then hold down your shift button and left click restore. (If it’s Apple then I think it’s Option or Alt.) Then choose your desired custom firmware. If you need anymore help add me on Skype Uneicas. :3
