The Apple iOS 5 launch took place yesterday and has been plagued by problems.
Firstly, the servers couldn't handle the loads it experienced leading to the update being unavailable to a lot of users , which in itself has caused a lot of frustration.
However, more worryingly social networks have been jammed packed full of users complaining that installing the update has led to massive data loss. Multiple users have reported losing their music, applications and data.
Apple has yet to comment on the problem but if anyone does encounter such problems they can resync their music and applications by using iTunes and at the end of the process selecting to restore purchased content.
Another thing to consider is that some of your shortcuts for your applications will move from your home-screen onto another one.
We're pretty sure you won't lose your content when upgrading to iOS 5 but you might have to spend ages resyncing the content from iTunes. The risk-averse amongst us might want to wait a couple of days to see how the issue developers before installing iOS 5.
