This shows up on my iPhone 4 as well. Hopefully it means the end of my iTunes purchase download problems on my phone.

::EDIT::
As I typed this, the main post was updated to show compatible devices .

Most likely for those ultra busy on-the-go types. Download now, run away to business then come back and it's ready to install while they watch the C-SPAN episodes they DVR'd.

Shame there's still nothing for the weak WiFi reception on the new iPad.

Download it and update later when you get a chance. Some people just want the download but want others to test it out .

You can download it and install it later, not everybody have 10+mb connection, that way (example) you download the firmware without the iPhone connected.

hooray

I'm just happy for updates at all! Before the iPhone made smartphones main stream, i've owned about a dozen phones with the ability to update, but the manufactures never pushed a single update.
The only phone I had that updated regularly was my beloved Sidekick. (How I miss thee, dearest Sidekick) *tear*

Looking forward to getting home and updating. I've had both the airplay issue and the popup that I couldn't purchase items that I've already purchased and downloaded.

Take note Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola. This is how software updates are supposed to be deployed.

I am hoping the toggle for turning off 3G is available on the 4S for AT&T. Still don't know why its not.

I really hope reading list is fixed. Many times i had to delete an entry just to get it to sync.

Btw: I LOVE reading list and use it a lot!

For all 10 of us wondering, I installed it and can confirm that this update does not restore the option to "Disable 3G" on the AT&T iPhone 4S. Dang it.

Can't wait until they allow us to download these updates over 3G... It's not really OTA until they do.

Installed like a breeze. Love the wifi update capability. Does seem snappier but that could be my imagination.

My iPhone is definitely faster and the battery life is much better.

Lol. Sorry, I just had to.

Then no future update will. I wonder if its now gone for 3GS & 4 users. Don't get why we 4S users can't have it but they can???

That would require downgrading to the previous aTV iOS (sort of like upgrading to Snow Leopard from Lion)

I sure hope so. This bug has been going on for too long.

I'll be able to test it out tonight and report back, unless someone can give it a try earlier.
