Apple’s iOS 5 Mobile Update Now Available

Apple’s new mobile operating system iOS 5 is now available for download.

The update, which is compatible with the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S, the iPad, the iPad 2 and the third and fourth generations iPod Touch devices, includes lots of new features from iCloud and an upgraded camera to a new messaging system and Twitter integration.

One interesting update for eBook fans is the custom newsstand. Apple explains the new platform on its site: “iOS5 organizes your magazine and newspaper app subscriptions in Newsstand: a folder that lets you access your favorite publications quickly and easily. There’s also a new place on the App Store just for newspaper and magazine subscriptions. And you can get to it straight from Newsstand. New purchases go directly to your Newsstand folder. Then, as new issues become available, Newsstand automatically updates them in the background — complete with the latest covers. It’s kind of like having the paper delivered to your front door. Only better.”
