October update: iOS5, e-Shop & BlackBerry

By | 13th October 2011

iOS 5

Apple have updated their mobile operating system with some new features and tweaks. You’ll need to update iTunes first before updating your iOS device. Although the Apple TV 2 can update itself.

Be prepared for a couple of worrying messages about your phone/iPod being factory reset. The update can take a while (an hour or so) but once completed all you data and settings should be intact.

The update may fail with cryptic error messages, possibly due to high demand on Apple’s servers – just keep trying – sooner or later the update does work.

More info about iOS 5 in this BBC article.


You can now buy memory cards, blank discs and tapes from our e-Shop.┬áThere are also direct links into Amazon.co.uk if you need anything that we don’t list.


This was funny the first time around. Even better now!
