I've just been browsing through questions tagged "iPad" and it occurred to me that there are a lot of questions for which there will be better answers once iOS 5 is released. There are a number of questions relating to file sharing, screen mirroring, over-the-air updates and the like where it appears that there will be good solutions built right into the new operating system. And it will become possible to do some things which are not possible now, or not possible to do without jailbreaking.

What is the procedure for handling this? Is there anything I can do when I come across such questions?

1 Answer 1


I suggest editing the highest voted answer to indicate it's specific to iOS versions 4.x, and then providing another answer that indicates "this works in iOS 5.x and better.."

    OK, sounds good. I think, though, that we need to wait until iOS 5 has actually been released, because we can never be sure what will actually make it into the release, or how well it will work.

    A separate answer to the one previously voted highest? In addition to the edition? What if the accepted answer was something other than the highest? Aug 5, 2011 at 5:33
  • @graham perrin - don't confuse the exceptions with the rule. We have mods and smart people for that :-) We all can vote and comment and edit to nudge the best answer without having to spell it all out. :-)
