View Full Version : iTunes 10.5.0142 & iOS5 lock-up

14-10-2011, 03:54 PM
I'm installed the very latest iTunes 64 bit version on my Windows 7 PC, then tried to update my iPhone 3GS to iOS5.
The update stalls on backing up the iPhone. It practically locks up my whole computer which is reasonably grunty.
I have to ctrl+alt=delete iTunes to take back control.
But I've also noticed that even without docking my iPhone, iTunes seems to be practically nonfunctional.
When I click on the iTunes store tab, the store hangs halfway through load and if I try to click away to another tab inside iTunes, iTunes becomes totally unresponsive.

Anybody know what the problem is and if there's a workaround that doesn't involve swapping to Android?

It's quite possibly due to heavy stress/workload on Apple's servers at the moment with people uploading to iCloud and downloading latest iTunes version or updating iPods or iPhones. Took me awhile yesterday (including 1 failed attempt) to update an iPod Touch to ios5.

I just updated my iPhone 4 to iOS5 after installing the latest iTunes on Win7 x64 and didn't have any issues.
