Will iOS automatically update to iOS6 without going to Software Update?

    I have some friends who have an iPhone but don't go to websites like MacRumors and therefore do not know iOS6 is out. Since I know it's out, I just go to software update.

    I would like my friends to be updated to iOS6 at some point. I was wondering if I had to make them aware of the update or not. If I never tell them about it, and they never go to Software Update, will they ever know an update is out? Or do I have to make them aware of it and tell them to go to Software Update?

    Okay. But let's say it's been a month since the update has been out? Will the user receive some sort of popup at some point?

    I have to believe that most users who are not on top of Apple's software releases do not routinely go to "General" in settings and select software update.

    Yes, they'll eventually get a popup, and a badge on top of the Settings app icon. Probably in a few days or about a week.
