    Worth it?

    Cost = 0
    Features Removed = None
    Jailbreaking Exploits Fixed = None
    Bugs Fixed = 4+

    You decide...

    I just started getting really good battery life so I am also hesitant to update. I feel like I remember thing happening last year in one of the 4.0 updates that made the battery worse. I know this is update is obviously said to make it better, I just don't have any problems with the phone now finally so I don't really want to change it.

    I agree.
    If you're stock and planning on staying then why not.
    The OTA update is quick and easy.

    Yes, there's no downside to this particular upgrade, and plenty of advantages.

    And you'll end up having to upgrade sooner or later.

    Did everyone get a push update re: this release?

    Is there a way to toggle this setting? I didn't get a message, but my colleague did?

    Thanks!

    If you want to jailbreak soon then no. Otherwise update. I never had battery problems, why would I bother and besides I'm missing my jailbreak. The hackers will use Charlie miller found exploit for untether jailbreak. This update fixes that hole.
