    7.0.1 fixes bugs in the fingerprint scanner. Only for the 5s and curiously the 5c. The iTunes update is a standard release coinciding with iOS 7 allowing full compatibility (it also closes the ability to use custom IPSWs to restore iDevices but that's a whole other issue.)

    But why is the OTA update 17mb and it's 1.3gb connected to iTunes?

    OTA you only get the changes. iTunes downloads the entire system so you can do a restore.

    OTA is a delta update, and it only downloads what has changed. iTunes downloads the entire software, which is a much bigger file.

    when you click on the OTA update, it will tell you what the changes/updates are usually for.
