    After reading some comments, I'm not sure if I want to update yet. And having my iPad for less than a week, I don't really know what I'd be missing in the first place.

    But is the update really worth it? Is iOS 5 so much better I should just go ahead and update?

    Thanks

    I think multi gesture is my favourite feature, it speeds everything up.

    I agree. I also LOVE not having annoying blue boxes popping up constantly. :)

    Safari works great with iOS 5. Notifications is great as well.

    DEFINITELY worth the effort. Are you kidding? Camera is great, multigesture, split keyboard gets a bit of getting used to, but in the end, well worth it..i cant wait to discover all the new features.. Can't stress it enough, do it!,

    Love the Reminders feature. I had to use Calendars for this and when i need a longer list i had to use Numbers to create a tick-off To Do list. Now i can do it all under Reminders. Well Done Apple Team!

    Greatest IOS yet....200 plus new features. I really like the ability to hold my IPhone 4s and take a picture using the volume button as the shutter button than the button on the screen. The voice command on iPhone is unbelievable.

    No!!! Are some nice things, like a camera button. Notifications is a nice to have. For me the killer is that they have blocked printing to non AirPrint printers via 3rd party apps such as print n share. I will now have to buy an AirPrint printer and persuade my university/business to change printers too! I am looking for a way to downgrade.

    Just email the document to the printer. It works for me, I don't even get any headers or email info on the printout.

    It's been a bit slow on my iPad 1 but I love the features that I got. No gestures for me though and it was really looking forward to that. I love the tabs in safari and I love the notifications. All in all a good upgrade.

    Mine was slow so I restarted, hold on/off button until slider appears then slide to turn off, press on/off button and home button for about 1 or 2 seconds to start again. After that it seems faster than before although the odd app runs slightly slower.
