Yes, I've gotten this on both my iMac connected to my iPhone, and my MacBook connected to my iPad. Annoying, considering I sat around and waited for each download for 45 minutes... No solution yet. Still searching.

My MBP has been trying to "contact the iPad software update server" for over an hour now. Tried for another hour before that. The only thing I can figure is that their server is bogged down with everyone else trying to update. Com'on Apple, if you can't handle this kind of traffic on launch day, how can I trust that I will be able to access my data in the cloud when I need it????:confused:

I have literally been trying since it was released just after 1. I've never had an issue updating before. Unreal that it's been this long. If it's the same server issue on Apple's end as it has been in the past, how many X.0 releases will it take until "it just works"?

Ive been having this problem today, since 10am. Its now 6pm. My iphone is jailbroken on 4.3.3 but my ipad 2 is on 4.3.5 and never been jailbroken. Does that have anything to do with my issue?

This sucks.
