    Hi guys! Just 1 hour left! Is it ok to install it via OTA on my iPhone 5? I did a clean install a month ago, but I'd like to avoid it this time. May it be a problem? Thanks

    I'm going to do it via iTunes just because I think it's often faster.

    Just my 2 cents, tho.

    Now that's funny....I find it to be quicker OTA. BUUUUT, I have a Dell, not a Mac ;-). Can't justify purchasing a good computer until this one is done

    I recommend backing up and updating on iTunes. It is faster, safer and uses less memory.

    My laptop is at work, and all I have here at home on my day off is my iP5 & iPad Mini Retina...so, I've backed both devices up on iCloud & I'm gonna give a shot OTA. If you hear somebody loudly dropping the F-Bomb...it's probably me all the way from Missouri! ;)

    Mac is all the justification you need. :apple: Michael Dell won't miss you.

    As somebody who thoroughly used beta 4, 5, and GM, I will be laughing today at all the problems people are going to be having. I'll keep my 5S on 7.1.2 for quite some time.

    Doesn't say much about you and all the other beta testers.

    Apple would be crazy not to release 8.0.1 sometime this week to be honest.

    +1 for iTunes.

    For small updates, OTA is fine but for a large one you'll be waiting awhile.

    I wonder if I'll be able to do it today. It hasn't gone past the downloading stage.

    ----------

    Now back to update requested.

    Using iTunes you get a backup of your phone before the os update. When you update OTA, you dont get this do you? Seems riskier to do it OTA but i dont think apple would have allowed it if it wasnt safe.
