    I have itunes on a MBP and i began the upgrade process on my 16 gb iphone. After the software was downloaded from itunes it took about 15 minutes to upgrade the phone. (My iphone has 14gb of stuff on it). Now....

    my wife uses a PC and i began the upgrade on her 16gb iphone. After the software download, it has been running for about an hour...and still going. Her iphone has about 10gb of stuff on it.

    Are others experiencing this long a period to perform the upgrade?:confused:

    I upgraded 2 16 Gig 3G Iphones this morning and it only took about 10-12 minutes each. I did this on a PC

    Yep, about 10 minutes. Took about 2-3 minutes to download the actual update and then the rest installing.

    Took me about 20 minutes tops, and that is including the 11 minutes to download it.

    What could cause the variation in time is how much is already on your iPhone prior to the upgrade. If you removed all your apps, music, podcasts, etc. before doing the update, the update would probably go faster. Then sync everything else back, and you're good.

    About 10 minutes to download, about 5-7 minutes to update.

    About 15 minutes for the OS to download, then another 10 minutes for it to install.

    I didn't even notice iTunes backing up my iPhone, so it was probably a minute or so.

    Right, well even though I live on a new estate, the fastest I can get is a 512K connection, so about an hour and 20 minutes to download the update.

    So far, the actual update process has taken 45 minutes backing up (which it only appears to have done about 45%).

    Two hours (so far), gotta love the "oh we can't be arsed to release updates, so we'll just make you download the whole OS each time something unstable and useless gets a little more stable" attitude.

    Either way, I'm still looking forward to trying out the new update when it finally finishes :)

    This is odd. I'm running a 6Mbps line, it's downloaded all that it's supposed to and I still see the "Updating iPhone firmware..." window on iTunes. The bar on my iPhone is full. I have about 25 apps which may cause a delay but 4+ hours?

    Grrr...

    follow eneisch's instructions to speed backup. it's about halfway down on the first page.

    my backup used to take +6 hours. now it takes about 10 seconds. it has to do with all the corrupt data for the apps.

    hope this helps you too.

    Backing up my data took 2 1/2 hours that is only a 1gb to backup.
    Took about 45 minutes to download the update. And, 10 mi utes to install.
    I'm satisfied so far. :)

    Thanks - I've just done this. I hope it helps for my future updates :) I think the problem lies with buying apps through the iPhone rather than via iTunes. Best to stick with the latter.

    Using the same computer (17" MBP with 3 GB RAM) it took about a half-hour to do my first-gen iPhone and about fifteen minutes to do the iPhone 3G, although both were going to be updated identically. Hm.....
