    Settings - Safari - Private Browsing

    If you set Private Browsing to "on" and later turn this feature to "off" (default setting), once you reopen Safari, it immediately crashes. Couldn't open Safari without crashing until I turned phone off/on.

    I am having the same issue. Just a bug they'll soon fix I'm guessing.

    When I try to go to mail on the phone I get this message:
    Cannot Get Mail
    The user name or password for "xxxx@gmail.com" is incorrect.

    It is a gmail account that I have always used....any thoughts?
    updating to iOS5 blanks all your account passwords stored, so go to settings, emails and set the password for the email again and you are fine

    I just finished updating my iPad to iOS 5. I used the restore method because I was getting major backup delays. Anyway, it updated the iPad without any problem, but now it won't restore it. When it got to the restore option, it said it could not be restored and just quit. Quit...like it's no big deal that I can't get all my data back onto my iPad! Seriously?!

    Anyone know how to manually dig into the backup file? If I lose all my app data, I might lose it.

    Edit: I got it to start the restore finally, but got an error message when it got to the actual restoring. It was a 3xxx message, which are usually connection errors. So, I guess I'll try again in the morning unless someone has a better idea. Thanks.
    3xxx? need it more detailed usually it fails when you have a host entry for gs.apple.com redirected to saurik (caused through Jailbreaks, can be done manually but also some programs have an option to set, if you remove it from the host, REBOOT(!!!) and try it again it should work

    Weird. I couldn't replicate. Restore from backup or as new?

    I can't seem to figure out the "Function to convert voice to text" feature. Is this strictly a Siri/iPhone4s feature? I thought the iP4 would have it.
    That's iPhone 4S only, I'm afraid. While it's not really Siri, you're still basically sending what you say to Apple's Siri servers, and the text of that is bounced back to you.

    To sync wirelessly you have to be plugged in. Not to your computer with iTunes anymore, but into a power outlet.

    When I updated and restored, it restored all of my passwords, so I don't think that's quite right. After wrestling with my update for hours on end, I would right off anything missing as a bug. Apple's update system seems riddled with them, as seen in responses to threads like this and polls on various tech blogs. My WinMo and WebOS phones were much less of a headache to update, especially WebOS. I'm in too deep to leave the iOS ecosystem, but I won't say it's perfect by any means. At least we got a free major update and you can't knock that.

    After updating my iPad I found that the old iPod icon had been replaced with a new one labeled Music. However, I found that all my podcasts, music, playlists and iTunes University downloads were gone. I downloaded a new podcast with no problem, so I know the revised app is working fine.

    However, what is the best way of restoring everything?

    You can manually sync it without being plugged in, yes - they're assuming you wouldn't try it with 1% power remaining. For it to sync automatically, it's got to be plugged in (pp 38, Ipad User Guide to iOS 5, "Syncing with iTunes, see also pp. 328, "iTunes Wi-Fi Sync").

    I am at the restore point on my iP4 and it is asking me for a password. I don't remember setting a password. It is also telling me that my older backup doesn't exist. Anyone else have this issue?
    After some time on the phone with Apple, I found that I would have to start from scratch. Luckily between MobileMe and apps on my Mac, not too much lost.

    It wipes when you install. You should be able to restore from the backup you (hopefully) made beforehand.

    Same here. When I look at the iPhone in iTunes, it shows the whole list in the phone. The phone itself only shows three. So if I go to the ringtones tab and tell it to sync ringtones it says something to the effect of "Are you sure you want to sync ringtones? You will lose all music movies and _________[something else] on this device. So I haven't done it.

    How do you turn off Notifications universally, for the night?

    In iOS4 you went to Settings, Notifications, and there was an on/off button. Now- turn each one off separately?? Really??

    Does iTunes need to be "running" or will it sync even if my computer is in sleep mode with iTunes not open on computer?

    I had hell trying to update the iPhone 4 to iOS 5 but eventually had success. However I had better luck with updating the iPad first, but iTunes gave me an error something about (-50) and even though both iDevices are running iOS 5 the iPad has NO keyboard clicks sounds...all the settings are turned on for it to be making the keyboard clicks but it just isn't. I thought about doing a restore and reinstalling the OS but I don't think I want to go through that headache again and I'll just deal without the keyboard clicks. As long as I can hear audio with movies/music...I'm good!

    I am currently running iOS 4.3.3 JB. Could someone please tell me or point me where it has been told, what all is new in iOS 5? I need to weigh it against my JB to see if it is worth it.
