    Apples community was saying that it should be out either today or tomorrow for windows. It's not needed though as people can always update to iOS 7 OTA. This is what I'll be doing if iTunes 11.1 isn't out soon for Windows users.
    Same here, but which way is best for updating , OTA or through ITunes.

    I'm no expert, but some feel that it is best to update through iTunes. However, Since OTA became available for iOS updates that is what I've always done and never once had a problem. I just make sure I back everything up through iCloud first before going ahead with the update. My thing is, OTA was created for a reason so why not use it, ya know?

    I'm in the same boat as you as far as waiting on the windows itunes 11.1 version. But, one thing I'm a stickler on, especially when going from one iOS to a new version in this case 6.1 to 7, I won't update OTA. I will keep my patience and wait it out for the itunes 11.1 windows version so that I can usb to my laptop and install iOS7 that way. In fact, since having my 4S from Nov.2011, I've only done 1 ota update, going from 4.8(?) to 5, and my battery life took a hit - had to restore as new...what a pita, lol. SO, needless to say, since then, I hook up directly to itunes now and if that means I have to wait a day or 2 more for the update to come out, i will

    Not a bad idea. Even if I do update OTA I will plug into power 1st for sure.

    It has been mentioned before that updating through iTunes gives it a sort of "fresh" install doesn't it? By that I mean it completely wipes it clean and then installs the newest version. While doing it on the phone directly doesn't. Am I wrong in assuming so?

    In order to even do an OTA update if your battery is at less than 50% I believe you would be prompted to plug it in first anyway.

    Yes, I have heard this as well and there are those who believe it is best to Setup as New iPhone and restore manually. As I said above, though. I have updated many times using the OTA method and simply restored from my iCloud back up. My iPhones have never had any issues from doing it this way in the past. I guess it all comes down to a persons comfort level where OTA VS iTunes updates are concerned.

    errrr...i should've clarified better when i said that my "battery life took a hit" I meant that after the ota install was complete and i was on my way with the new shiny iOS5, my battery life was terrible-meaning my usage/standby times were unacceptable, and that's why i had to restore as new.
