    Not yet available OTA for me (but maybe for thee!)

    (and now I'm getting it...with an impossibly slow download speed)

    Perhaps because a bunch of us said it was likely (and has the been the case most of the time recently)?

    Weird, I have the beta profile and beta 6 installed and is asking me to download the full update. Isn't the same as beta 6? Maybe it isn't. :)

    I had the same thing happen. I wonder if it has new stuff for the News+ and Airpods.

    Same here. I kind of like the idea of having the release version installed when there's no beta available, without having to remove the profile. Maybe this is a fundamental change to the approach (probably just my own wishful thinking though).

    Is it beneficial to do this update via iTunes? I've always done OTA but I'd rather minimize any bugs that could happen if need be.

    I do all my update using iTunes because it grabs the full firmware. After update, restart the device.

    As do I - allows for a full backup of devices too.

    Thanks for the reply! Does it matter if I do a hard reset or the normal way after the update?
