Correct me if I am wrong but I thought one of the new bits in iOS 5 was delta updates. I took this to mean that when I update either the OS or individual apps via the update button in the app store, that it would no longer redownload the entire app rather just the bits that have changed resulting in much faster updates
Does anyone know if this is the case? Doesn't seem to be updating apps any quicker to me

Delta updates is enabled for the OS, but I don't think it is for the apps.
The idea is that they can now patch the operating system and do it over the air instead of plugging in your phone for such a long time while it re-installs the whole operating system.

Why would I? To get a clean install. And to make sure I had a good back up. Sync/backup the phone, upgrade iTunes, do the iOS update, restore from the fresh backup.
The iCloud backups were also not available until near the end of the beta process.
