Guys, when I try to update from my iPhone, the file is 189mb. When updating from itunes, it downloads 803mb...so which should I choose? haha

OTA is just the delta. iTunes is the whole OS.

having said that, i spent most of the last 2 hours trying to update OTA on my iPhone 4. it kept timing out, so i'm doing it through iTunes now...going much smoother.

It says 8 hours to download :mad: Speed Test is showing me at 15 ms too. So the servers must be slammed

I updated OTA a couple hours after the keynote finished. Took about 15 minutes to download, roughly 15-20 minutes to install and be ready to go.

Their servers might be getting hit hard. Especially with more and more people getting off work in the evening hours.
