    I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread people can use to tell when and where the update drops OTA or iTunes. Apple doesn't appear to have a countdown clock anywhere I can find.

    I have my iPad 2, iPhone 4 and 4S in a row, hitting update every hour or so. Last check was 0800. I fully expect it to be this afternoon on the east coast... probably around 1200 or 1300.

    As an iPhone 4 owner who isn't going to get the iPhone 5 until initial launch bugs are fixed which happens all the time (Maybe oct-november or even december), I'm pretty stoked for iOS 6 although I know i'm probably going to get the iPhone 5 anyway.

    Does anyone know exactly what time will it be released? I know iOS 5 released last year at about 10-11am. I would be pleased if they decided on the same schedule this year once again.

    If I'm running beta 3 of iOS 6 on my iPad, will I have to go through iTunes only?

    From beta 4 to GM it was iTunes only (no OTA).

    Try refreshing the OTA update a couple of times, that worked for me, I'm currently downloading.

    Do you think it's worth upgrading now or waiting?

    Well, it'll probably get longer throughout the day - may as well beat the rush now.

    I'm in Dallas too and just checked and nothing OTA yet for me. Not at home so I can't go through iTunes. :( Hopefully soon though!
