It’s been a long time in the making, though Apple have finally announced the release of iOS 5 just 1 day shy of Steve Jobs death.
Among the new features is a notification center, iMessage for cross-platform messaging across all iOS devices and a tabbed browser.
You can upgrade now by using the Gold Master (release candidate) by following the instructions on Lifehacker: Upgrade to iOS 5 Right Now
I’m itching to get my hands on it, though I’m going to play it safe and wait until the 12th of October, which is the official release date.
