Apple made iOS 5 available to download for millions of iOS device owners just hours ago, and it looks like it has put a lot of pressure on their servers, resulting in many users reporting problems during the upgrade process/failed updates.
Most of the issues reported seem to relate to ‘Internal error (3200)’ which is a result of too much pressure on the Apple servers so they fail to verify the upgradation. Some are reporting going through the process up to 10 times before being able to get the upgrade to go through. I’m personally on the third attempt at the moment and still not sure if it is successful.
I’m sure there are many of you out there that have been stuck at your computers for hours now trying to get the iOS 5 update to install, getting past those pesky ’3200 errors’ and there is a chance to you might be stuck for another few hours as well as it is expected that pressure on Apple servers will continue for some time to come. For those that are not too bothered about getting their hands in iOS 5 straight away, it could be an idea to wait a bit, perhaps until tomorrow, and then try again as demand should have eased a bit by then.
Looks like i will be sitting here a bit longer while i wait to see if i’m successful.
