    How can I get ios8 tomorrow with iTunes? Can I just plug my iPad into iTunes? I don't want to do it OTA.

    Yes, once it's released, plug your device into iTunes, hit restore.

    Once iOS 8 goes live tomorrow, you can plug in your device to your computer and through iTunes, follow the steps for iOS 8 installation. I warn you now, you will receive error messages due to heavy traffic of users installing the OS. Like previous years, I have suggested waiting until the end of the day tomorrow or waiting at least until the weekend.

    What do you have against OTA? It's the easiest way to update any Mobile device.

    who cares why he wants to do it that way, he does. If you want to use OTA, knock yourself out.

    just like if you want to clean install, set up as new etc, do it. Leave the rest of us to our favorite methods

    Just wondering, does anybody know the size of IOS8? Just asking in case I do it OTA and I dont have unlimited. Unless its like 1gb it wont really matter.

    It's definitely over 1 gig. Not sure about OTA, but probably around 500 mb. But OTA updates need to be done over wifi.
