Hitting the “check for update” button in iTunes 10.5 and waiting for the iOS 5 release time, which leaves you with a message that the download is still stuck on 4.3.5 is not fun, well let us help you feel a little less frustrated so you can go and relax and come back when the iOS 5 download will be live.
We know, like most people who’ve had every generation of iPhone, that the release time is likely to be 10am PST, which works out at 6pm in London, UK. When you look at all the updates over the years you’ll see that they’ve pretty much come out in a 30 minute window, which included minor updates like iOS 4.2 and 4.3, also more major updates like the iPhone 3rd generation firmware and iOS 4.
With this in mind we wanted to list our expected iOS 5 release time by zone, which are listed below by major areas/cities of the world. While we cannot be one hundred percent right, we’re around 99% sure.
So take note of your expected time, and go relax for a bit. As long as Apple release the new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch software today, you can almost bet that these will roughly be the times, giving 30-minutes or so. Keep updated with everything iOS 5 on this page here.
Update: iOS 5 has just gone live for download via iTunes.
