How to download iOS5.0.1 and update your iPad or iPhone!

[UPDATE: How to download and update to iOS6 for iPhone, iPod and iPad!]

Apple has just released the latest update for iOS5 which is iOS5.0.1. It is available as an over the air update, which means that you don’t need to plug your iPhone or iPad into your laptop to get the update.

The total download size is 44MB, so I’d recommend doing the download via wifi, or via a data bundle.


To get the update, go to Settings > General > Software Update.

The update release notes are:

  • Fixes bugs affecting battery life
  • Adds Multitasking Gestures for original iPad
  • Resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud
  • Improves voice recognition for Australian users using dictation


Here are the direct download links for the iOS 5.0.1 update.


Remember to use iTunes 10.5 to do the update.
