    I hate how they use their arrogance to say they can pull this off in one day, iOS updates should come by regions...

    just so they could avoid their servers crash, their IT team will probably won't sleep for a week

    I had a couple failed attempts, but I finally got it downloaded and installed. Once it got going I just sat the phone down and let it do it's thing.

    With the amount of money that Apple has this shouldn't be happening.
