    I received the notification for iOS 7. It completely downloaded. When I go to install, it gives me the error "Software Update Unavailable. Try again later". I can't reset the install. Plugging it into the newest version of iTunes shows that i'm on the latest version (of iOS 6). WTF?

    I have never had so many issues with an iOS update. I restarted my iPad, but I'm still getting the same error.

    Disregard. I got it finally. Update servers must have been jammed with verifications.

    I've been getting the same thing. I did with iOS 6 too right after its release. Give it time....there's a few people downloading it.

    Yeah, it was. It was the OTA I was having issues with.

    It would sure be nice if we didn't have to type "agree" twice EVERY time we want to try running the update again, eh?

    Because it still has to talk to the server to "verify" the update before starting the install process. That's where I got hung up.

    I had the same problem. I jst kept backing out to Settings and then selecting Software Update and trying again until it finally finished. I love iOS 7 so far. The animations and dynamic wallpapers are amazing. Feeling like a kid with a new toy.

    Had to try about 30 times today on the iPad 4. Started downloading, I went out for groceries, and it was ready for setup when I came home!

    The parallax effect is not as pronounced as I imagined. I wonder if it'll be more obvious on the phone? It scattered a number of my app icons around. In Safari there's no longer a bookmark for the iPad. There is supposed to be one right? Just like on the iPhone?

    Edit: No bookmark for the iPad manual.

    I'm doing this now as I just got another "9006" error connection message while trying to install via iTunes.

    Just updated my iPad (3) - smooth progress. I was doing the update with it plugged in via USB to PC and itunes running, then realized that the battery was about to die, so thru the middle of it all, unplugged it from PC and plugged it into charging port ---- Not a hick-up! My apps were still in multitasking after the update, my safari still had the old page up, wow such a huge update and it's if I was using the iPad all this time. Gotta Love Apple....
