Fastest way to know iOS 5 is out for 3GS, iPhone 4

By Updated on

There has been a huge amount of speculation, as to when iOS 5 will be available for download. We have covered details on what time previous versions have been made ready; but what is really the fastest way to know that iOS 5 is out for the iPhone 4 and the 3GS? We have left out the other two models, as they are not supported with the next update.

The answer is a simple one really, instead of keep pressing check for update in iTunes (which has now been updated to version 10.5) you should head over to Twitter. This is the easiest and fastest way to know when you need to update your iPhone to iOS 5. Don’t try to search now, as the update will not go live until tomorrow.

However, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. There are two ways to do this, you can either go direct to Twitter and search iOS 5 Live, which you can see just by clicking here. However, an even easier way is to check out the widget that we have embedded for you below. This is continually updated, so the moment that Apple’s new mobile OS goes live, you will know.

Remember that you need to download and install iTunes 10.5 first; otherwise you will not be able to install iOS 5. We advise you to do this now, otherwise you will have to wait much longer in order to install iOS 5 and start to play with the new features. What feature are you looking forward to the most?
