    What if you're 15 hours ahead of Apple time? Will it be released the next day? :(

    I imagine it would release like most of their releases, at the same time worldwide, so yes, you would receive yours 15 hours later than the US PDT release time.

    After the absolute cluster**** that was the iOS7 release I will most likely wait until Thursday before I update. I still remember trying to update last time.... Took me hours....

    I remember last year, the minute IOS 7 came out, I had to wait until the next day to update my iPhone due to server overload.

    Yeah, last year was insane. Why don't they stagger the release between time zones?

    Of course. Apple won't release it early for those that far ahead of their time zone. It's not like you are actually waiting 15 hours longer than the rest of us.

    Yeah this happened with me - I just downloaded the .ipsw online and did a "check for update" in itunes and worked instantly, so much quicker than OTA imo.

    I'm just happy that someone on this board understands the difference between PDT and PST.

    I downloaded via iTunes, I never trusted OTA.

    But that's what it feels like when the whole internet says September 17, and that date is almost over! :p:p:p

    People pull their software from different datacenters. Here in Europe Apple make use of many third party datacenters specifically for software/App Store downloads.

    I'm looking forward to iOS 8 shipping on my iPhone 6 and might have to update my iPad today to hold me over.

    Well I guess there has to be somewhere in the world where the update goes live at the end of the day (their time).

    Apple is based in the PDT time zone and the 10:00AM launch there is probably because they will have Apple staff and engineers on hand and ready for when the floodgates open to deal with whatever problems come up during the day. I wouldn't be surprised if Apple already has an army of employees up in the wee hours of the morning getting ready for this launch.
