Just updated all 3 iPhones and both iPads over the air. Pretty cool.

You have to go to Settings, general to find the software update

Installed mine at work. Man that's nice...

Gotta save Apple some major $$ on bandwidth not having to send 700+MB to everyone.

No, you have to update each device. You can do it over the air instead of having to hook up to itunes

You mean I don't have to hook up each device to iTunes? I can just put it on the desk and update? What a time saver!!! No more hooking up the cord!

I must be missing something here...

Yes. The only catch is that your device has to have over 50% battery left (or is plugged into a power source).

The download for my iPhone was only 55MB.

Every iPhone is downloading a tenth or less as much data as the old "full-install" iOS updates in the past. Saves Apple from having to pay for the extra TBs of bandwidth.

Ah.. but this has nothing to do with it being over-the-air...right.
I was confused.. but that seems to happen from time to time.. smile

Ahhh..because it's only downloading the update for that particular device.

They have changed the way they do updates to match that of OS X. They are serving up just the files that have changed instead of serving up the whole OS every time.
