iOS 5 IPSW Direct Download Links + How to Update via IPSW

 iOS 5 IPSW[1] (iPhoneSoftWare) is now available for all compatible iOS devices. Below are the direct links.

[1] The IPSW is the file that contains the operating system for iPhones, iPads and the iPod touch. After you’ve downloaded the appropriate file from the list above, here’s how to update your device.

Plug in your device and Option+click on the Check for Update button in iTunes. If you want to wipe your device and do a clean install, you can Option+click on Restore.

A window will pop up, navigate to the IPSW you downloaded and select it. That’s it, your device should begin to update.

    Please note that you still need to update your iTunes to 10.5 to update to iOS 5. You can download iTunes 10.5 from Apple’s website, or directly on your Mac through Software Update.
