I think many people about this. It was a key feature with the introduction on iOS 5.

Many people know about this and many people do not. Not a bad reminder I guess for those who do not know or may have forgotten.

Instead of going into settings then software update. I'd like to receive push notifications for new updates.

Yes this has been mentioned time and time again.

If you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, your device should inform you of a new software update. It might take some time.

Too much time.

Are you always in desperate need of a software update?

When it fixes annoying things like not being able to delete pictures from photo stream yes.

I got the message that that an update was available on my iPhone. I presume Apple waited for the load on the servers to die down before notifying those who hadn't done it.

Yup. When it first came out, you couldn't even download it OTA for at least the first few hours. I managed to update my non-developer iPad, but only about 18 hours after iOS 5.1 was out.
