    Thanks! I have never updated as soon as it was available, is it usually extremely slow around that time?

    Yes. Everyone is usually trying to downl,oad the update at once, slowing down the server.

    That really depends. Last year, I downloaded iOS 6 OTA on my (now former) iPhone 4S within 5-10 minutes of it coming out, and it had updated to iOS 6 in about the same amount of time.

    Internet connection is important - I was on my university's Wi-Fi network which is about 30-40 Mbps. Much faster than my home wifi.

    slow downloads and slow activation w/ iTunes, takes about 3 days after the newly released phone for things to settle down.

    I wouldn't even try to download the new iOS on the first day. I would wait a few days for all the hysteria to die down.
