This morning Apple released iOS 5 for the iPhone, iPad and other iOS devices.  An update to iTunes became available as well.  Since new technology can be overwhelming  and confusing for some people, LifeHacker, one of my favorite websites, has got you covered. They have provided the steps to setting up your iDevice’s Wi-Fi Sync, iCloud, and Notification Center. There is also a handy video that tells you everything you need to know about iOS  5 in Seven Minutes.   Be sure to listen to next week’s SSWL for my full review on Apple’s iOS 5.

Have you already played with iOS 5?  Do you like it or hate it? Comment below.
