    Hi,

    My gf just bought a new 6S. I said I would put ios10 on via itunes. Is there anyway I can get iTunes to download the firmware without the phone being present, so she doesn't have to wait 2 - 3 hours for it to download when she gets there. I only want it from Apple not another site with the ipsw file.

    Thanks

    Other than getting it elsewhere, there's no way of getting iOS 10 from iTunes without plugging the iPhone into a computer first.

    You can download it from:
    https://ipsw.me/

    It uses Apple's servers, so it's literally the same thing as downloading it from iTunes.

    Thanks Suckfest,

    They say - when you click on any Apple Software link on the site, you are redirected to an Apple server. We do not (and never will) mirror these files.

    Hopefully that's true.
