iOS 5 iPhone Start-Up Screens

Filed under: iPhone iPad iOS | Tags: , |

I just got iOS downloaded and installed on my iPhone 4 (non-S). Here is a first look at the iOS 5 startup screens:

 The “linen” motif is prevalent in the background – matching the look of OS 10.7 Lion’s startup screen.

The text “slide to set up” changes between various languages.

When you start the phone, you have to re-setup the phone, including selecting language, wifi, and selecting whether you want to restore a backed up software. Alternatively, you have treat the phone as a new phone.

Compared to prior iOS updates, it seems even more important to back up before installing iOS 5.


Installation will take about 45 minutes (depending on the size of your phone). Plus, another 45 minutes to restore prior applications. Don’t try to do it over lunch!
