Also, I suggest doing the following before you update:
1. Transfer your photos, videos, wallpaper, music and other important stuff to a computer, flash drive or external hard drive.
2. If you don't have an Apple TimeCapsule, write down your Wi-Fi password and have it readily available.
3. This is covered in the first point, but I suggest you backup the contents of any password storage apps to a computer, flash drive, external hard drive or the like.
4. If you have iOS 5 or later, make an iCloud backup
5. If your contacts are stored only on your phone, export them.
6. Take a screenshot of your home screens and save them to your computer.

Updating OTA is indeed a convenience and nothing more because it installs only the minimum data needed to upgrade whereas iTunes does a complete overhaul. I am one that says if you're going to take the time to update, go all out and fully upgrade, but that's Just Me, D. I don't want my iPhone and iPad patched. I want them erased and then restored with a freshly downloaded and complete operating system.
