Poll: Which version of iOS are you currently running?

Which version of iOS are you currently running? Apple released iOS 4.3.3/4.2.8 last week so we figured we'd see how many of you in the TiPb nation updated your primary device, be it an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to the latest and greatest?

Did you rush out an update immediately? Did you wait until you next needed to sync with iTunes and it reminded you? Did you wait for the Jailbreak before updating? Or did you not update at all?

Since you all listen to our iPhone Live and iPad Live podcasts (right?!) you know I have updated yet and probably won't until I find a bug or see a feature that really encourages me to do it. (Hey, I don't even update my apps, remember!)

If you have multiple iOS devices, just vote based on the one you use most and either way, give us all the juicy details in the comments!

Joe says:

lol I voted and I was like "holy crap, everyone's using 4.3.3?!"
Then I realized I was the only one who voted :(

Kareem says:

Your not the only one. I updated A.S.A.P.

GadgetMomma says:

I'm Updating to 4.3.3 right now.

Tinavane says:

4.1 no need for that other crap

felface says:

Lol more people use IOS 1 than 2 @Joe 4.3.3 is still the overwhelming majority

Jason says:

I'm a little behind...jailbreak baby

Bushido says:

I use to update right away but the more I have the iPhone, the more I just wait for a whole number jump instead of fractions. 4.1 and will wait till 5.0.

bigbadleo says:

4.3.3 all the way and not yes, not jailbroke!!!!!

iPheuria says:

I so wanted to vote 1.x just to be able to say I did LOL it was tempting. I'm still on 4.3.2 not redoing my whole JB for some insignificant bug fix Ughhh who cares if they are monitoring where my phone is there will be other more substantial updates and I'll get rid of the bug then.

p2kart says:

Wow... I thought more people would be using 4.2.x...

johncblandii says:

iPhone 3G. :-( I have no choice.

SteveC says:

+1 Me too! :-( Holding out now for iPhone 5...

Xavier says:

Georgia, I still can't believe you don't update your apps. Doesn't the badge with double digit numbers ever just jump out at you?

Leanna Lofte says:

8 people are using 1.x??? Who are you?! And why are you using it?!

Xavier says:

Perhaps still use an OG iPhone to this day and just never updated lol

nickpthemft says:

Seriously. There's no reason or excuse for 1.x (or 2.x for that matter). Craziness!

Brian says:

I find it difficult that anyone still on iOS 1.x would frequent this forum. Not being snobby about it; just making an observation.

Gregz0r says:

Agreed. I'm not buying it. Still on 1.x? Pics, video to verify or GTFO. :D

Redmanc35 says:

I'm on 4.1, been unable to get my iPhone to show up in iTunes to sync, even had a new phone after it locked my old one into the plug in to itunes logo. Followed all the technical advice both from apple and other sites to no gain. Even tried another laptop, still no joy. No at the point where I'm going to jump ship to android once my contract is up.

Steven says:

already far ahead of you.
HTC inspire on May 13!
(that's when I'm eligible for an upgrade)
no problems with apple, im just getting sck of some of the stuff apple does with the iPhone. haha.
still a MacBook owner and still love it though. :)

smario says:

Don't go2 android! I like iphone n thought I would like it. But don't. I got the Atrix. Bad decision. Once an iPhone-er......always!

johncblandii says:

Ex-iPhone'r. #logicbusted

Morgan says:

I'm also on 4.1, but i can;t tick both 4.0 and 4.1, unfortunately.

Keith-IA says:

4.2.8 on #teamjailbreak.

EagleyeSmith says:

I'm on 4.3.1. I never really keep up w/all the updates. It's to much a a hassle to keep playing the cat & mouse game. I usually skip and wait till the next upgrade has a feature(s) I want, then'll I'll bite the bullet. Wanted the safari improvements that's why I got on 4.3.1. Theres nothing that I want on 4.3.3. So I'm good.

PinkFriday says:

I want the full version of the site and it's not working on my iPhone. I can't view the results without the full version. :(....

Rob says:


Steve says:

We asked TiPb to stop you voting and posting comments after the comments that you'd previously posted.

fastlane says:

I've stayed with 4.2.1 jailbreak because the updates haven't been anything I've worthwhile to me. But, now I'm beginning to think maybe it's the reason I don't get tethering warning messages from AT&T... so, I'm gonna stick with it until I can't stand it anymore (or get a warning).

robnaj says:

I have 3 devices including a first generation iPod Touch so I am stock on 3.x but my main device aka my iPhone 4 is on the latest and greatest

LozBlanko says:

I only update for new features really. I can't be bothered with the latest location "bug fix".

Brian says:

I regret going to the trouble (including jail-break) of upgrading from 4.3.2 to 4.3.3 In future, I'm going to check if there is any value to me in the upgrade...

Disturbed_Angel says:

I plug my phone in pretty much every day to sync music and ringtones, so for me it's not really any hassle to update when it pops up. Same with the apps, when the pop up tells me I have updates, I just let it do its thing.

LPT says:

was on 4.3.x, then downgraded to 4.2.1. I couldn't deal with the flakey Bluetooth connection with my hands free device that started happening with 4.3. I do miss the native wifi tethering though... :(

Glenn#IM says:

iPod touch 2 gen. No longer supported. Waiting for iPhone 5. Have thought about iPod touch 4, but can wait.

Avenged110 says:

Am I the only one sitting there, constantly clicking update until it finally drops everytime?

Cameron says:

I wonder what the results would be if you only asked jailbreakers what version of ios they were on? I'm current on a jailbroken 4.2.1 3gs and like Georgia don't see the point unless there is new feature or a security bug.

Bill Taroli says:

Worth noting that the only reason I upgraded to 4.3.3 so quickly was the rapid availability of the jailbreak. Too bad we haven't captured JB/non-JB in the upgrade stats. ;-)

Dunpizzle says:

4.3.1. I'm not going to 4.3.3. I wanna try xbackup but I got 2 phones to jailbreak this weekend so I'll use it on them.

Ronn says:

I want new features with updates. Not fixes. But maybe they can just mask the fixes with new features. 4.3. Till WWDC.

Oliverf says:

I normally wait around a week or two before updating to the latest iOS version. Been doing it this way since 1.1.4. Did 4.3.3 two nights ago

ghostface147 says:

So no one else is curious on what the other 17 (as of this writing)votes are? iOS5?????? Some other hack? The Apple gestapo?

Skwidspawn says:

I'm still on 3.x on my iPhone. Jail broke it last year and installed MyWi then started using my iPad for everything. No reason to upgrade a device I use as a phone and wifi hotspot. "If it's not broke, don't fix it."

Jacksparrow says:

4.1 is a good one. 11-12 hours battery life.

MattyFresh says:

4.1 dont usually update till big release but then again apple intentionally craps out our iphones so we buy new ones were all stupid isheep oh well lol

mlfgc says:

currently running apple II... thank god for number munchers on the app store

Mathias says:

The second newest ;) jailbroke my phone just before 4.3.3 :/

Don says:

I fear this latest update because I rely on my GPS all day to get me to clients. If this update slows gps acquisition even a little I don't want it.
I don't want my iPhone to be like the blackberry where I can get to my destination before the GPS locks on!

Taranis says:

I had major issues on anything newer than 4.2.1. I think the problem was with biteSMS, but even on 5.3 beta 6 I still run into device lockups whenever I use the phone app or biteSMS. Happened on 4.3.2 and 4.3.3. I went back to 4.2.1 and biteSMS 5.2. Not only that, but 4.2.1 seems faster and I know I have more available memory after bootup than on 4.3.x. Guess I'll wait until Apple comes out with a more compelling reason to upgrade.

Tom says:

Why is it that I can never vote in these polls without posting a comment first? Something to do with the mobile site, I suppose.

Sekelli says:

I was on 4.3.1 but i downgrade to 4.2.1 for celest
