    Is there a way to force iTunes to download the updated iPhone firmware without actually plugging in an iPhone? The reason I ask is that I won't be home for another couple of hours and I'd love to have the update downloading in the meantime. I can remote desktop onto my home Mac, so I thought I'd get the download started.

    Is it possible?

    Thanks!

    Nope.

    It only took me 10 minutes to download earlier today, so it shouldn't be a big deal to just start when you get home...

    Thank you for the link. I think I'll heed your warning, though, as it seems a valuable one.

    I'm sure you're correct. Though, it looks like you have a faster connection than me.

    Thanks, guys, for the information and quick replies. :)
