    I'm trying to update to iOS7 but keep getting this error.

    "There was a problem downloading the software for iPhone. The requested source was not found."

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Yep. Standard "despite the naysayers saying its crap and no one will want it, the whole first world is trying to get the new software at the same dang time" overload issues

    Overload on Apple's servers.

    Seems to happens every time there's a major update.

    I'm content to wait a couple days and let the pixie dust settle. :)

    Just started to download now in iTunes, but keeps telling me after a minute that there was a network error.

    I got all thru the hour it took to download, updating software and going to restart your ipad when I got the message that the download was unsuccessful, try again later. Course it won't let me try again for a long while.

    I was getting that message on iTunes Beta 11.1 on Mac OS X until I updated it to the public release.
