    Can anyone post how big the OTA update is and how much free space is needed? I have a few people that want to know
    Don't know for sure how big the final is - previous betas & the GM were just under 1.5GB - and from what I understand, having ~3GB free space is needed for OTA.

    Not only are servers busy... there could be network traffic loads at points between you and Apple's servers that are at capacity causing bottlenecks, time-outs, and failures.

    Patience is the key... and try later.
    Daaaaamn it!!! It stopped downloading and showed me an error!!!!!

    Thanks for the tip. I have 11.1 now but I still only get prompted for 6.1.4. My iPhone is jailbroken but I'm ready to jump to iOS7. I hope I don't have to install 6.1.4 first...do I?
    I think you do. I got caught w/ phone replacement (AppleCare) during last update - had to do next-to-last update to get to the last one. If code is written to update from 6.1, it only knows what to do if 6.1 is there.

    Jail breakers- help?

    Also just got a report that the iPad 3 needs 3.3 GB of free space to update using OTA
