    If iOS 6 is downloaded, where would it be stored on a Mac? I chose to 'download only' iOS 6, but I can't find find the file on my MBP after the download.

    Thank you. It was in ../iTunes/iPad Software Updates. I was doing a search for iOS 6, but the file is actually called iPad2.2_6.0_10A403_Restore.ipsw. The iOS 5.x.x files could be directly downloaded and stored where you wanted them, but iOS6 is different. I had to connect the iPad to initiate the download process with no idea where the file was going.
