A deluge of complaints have flooded Apple concerning error 3200 messages appearing on thousands of iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch's, after thousands of users tried to download the new iOS 5 system.
The operating system is intended to bring over 200 new features to older Apple devices, but the downloading process proved to be frustrating for many.
Error 3200 ended up as a trending topic on Twitter, while those who were able to download iOS 5 reported that the process proved to be very slow.
Apple Insider reports that the company's server was only accepting half of download requests, with downloads taking around 15 minutes.
Those who were able to download the server had to wait as long as three hours after the download completed for the backup process to finish, with a large number reporting that a 3400 message - which indicates that iTunes is unable to connect with Apple's updated server - appearing.
A number of Twitter users have posted the same message, which reads: "Steve Jobs has only been gone a few days and we are already experiencing the start of the techpocalypse #ERROR 3200."
Celebrity and Apple devotee Stephen Fry even wrote: "Well, it's nice to give Android users something to gloat about once in a while."
iOS 5 will automatically be placed on the new iPhone 4S, which is released on October 14.
