Everyone has been eager for the past few weeks looking forward to the new iPhone iOS 5 Upgrade. Many people have been on the edge of their computers getting their old OS updated.

As of 10am Pacific time, Apple released this update and  a large amount of people on various Apple devices were wanting the update. Consequently, errors have been reported by users on Facebook, Twitter and various other websites.  The error messages pop up at the point where iTunes tries to connect with Apple. Some believe that the problem is on Apple’s end,  due to overloaded servers.

Users have stated that they are encountering installation errors near the end of the installation process after downloading the update and backing up the device. You thought you were getting a new OS, but all you ended up with are errors.

Some have also reported saying that the error has caused their phone to be bricked and unusable. Since my phone isn’t Jailbroken, I haven’t experienced the ‘bricked’ issue. I’ve tried installing the iOS 5 about 4 times and I am having no luck at all. It might be best to wait a few days before installing the iOS 5 to avoid the supposed overloaded servers and issues.
