I'm updating now. I'm looking forward to the new stuff. The update server is unreachable via iTunes but I've hit the update a couple of times from an iOS device.

I'm updating only because I have to restart iPad every darn 2 minutes because something is causing major memory leak... I'm sure a jb will be available soon anyway... :confused:

About time as well

"Fixes an issue that occasionally caused audio to drop for outgoing calls"

This has been a major headache for me, everytime I called someone the audio dropped.

Just updated my iPhone 4s and iPad 1. OTA update went smoothly on both devices. The new lock screen camera is kinda cool, but what happened to the new wallpapers we were anticipating??

I haven't updated my iPad 2 yet so I don't know, but it is possible that Apple decided to make those wallpapers for the new iPad only (especially since one of them is the new default wallpaper - bye bye ugly water droplets). Luckily, all 4 new wallpapers were extracted from the beta builds and are floating around the internet. A simple google search should turn them up.

I've been using it for an hour or so. Nothing that special for me. I'll be curious if my 4s battery life gets better even though it wasn't too bad to begin with.

The ability to delete individual photos from the photostream was good enough for me. The new camera slider on the lock screen is a nice addition as well.

That said....I'm not a jailbreaker, so it may not be enough of a bump to get those guys to bring their OS back to stock.
