    It usually drops around noon. A little fluctuation here or there. I honestly don't care what time it hits. I am using the GM so it's usually an identical build.

    Well according to Murphy's law, it will be released once you are not near a computer to download it right away.

    Might be a dumb question, but will this be the first update available "via the cloud" or are we sure that you still need to connect to a mac/PC?

    It will be jammed on the servers anyhow. I'll wait until later in the evening.

    The major "point" releases (5.0, 5.1, 5.2) will require iTunes to update/install. The OTA is reserved for smaller, incremental releases (5.0.1, 5.0.2, etc)

    I wonder if it still will happen, given how Apples upped their infrastructure.

    Yeah, I think it will still be chaos. The serves will be slammed with everyone wanting it. That's part of the reason that I went GM (I did all of the betas) - I can do any incremental update OTA.

    That's a trick question... because what will be released IS the GM version. There may be an update closely following (within the first week) the initial 5.0 release on 10/12, and it should be available via OTA and iTunes.

    What I am hearing /reading is that the minor releases (5.0.1, 5.0.2, etc) will be available both via OTA and iTunes. The "point" releases (5.1, 5.2) will only be available via iTunes. But until we get there, we won't know for sure.
    Remove "iTunes" replace with "WiFi". The OTA updates (and iCloud) are intended to replace iTunes, so you don't have to own a computer to update your iOS devices. When the updates get too big, they get restricted to WiFi vs 3G.

    Wireless update is an iOS5 feature. You'll still need to connect to your PC/Mac to get from iOS4 to iOS5. Updates can be delivered OTA after you get to 5.

    Not true. All updates will be delta OTA updates, meaning it will only download what's changed instead of the whole thing making the files smaller. If it is too big it will just ask you to use wifi. The purpose of this is to cut the cord and allow non computer owners to have an iphone or ipad as their only device. You will still be able to plug into iTunes if you want to though. But why would you want to unless it is to charge your phone.

    I understand that all updates to iOS 5 will be OTA. However, that is not the question. The question is 4 to 5. Are you saying that 4 to 5 will be OTA?

    4 to 5 requires a computer with iTunes 10.5. Once you are up to iOS5, then future updates are OTA.

    No. iOS 4 to iOS 5 will require iTunes.

    The point of iOS is to get the capability to do Ota updates. IOS 5 gives you that, so you have to plug it in to get iOS 5 to be able to do that, then from there on it will always be Ota. Until the end of the world.
