This all seems pretty interesting to me... all apple user updating at same time, all idevices get it at same time, 3 year old Apple support for all iPhones so many articles and so many comments from users on pa. just fantastic..... no wonder most Apple user highly satisfied and not willing to change to other platforms even if they offer alot more. always love apple support.+1 to apple for creating such wonderful user experience..... Time to update my 4S.:-)

Now that they have that niffy new Control Center it is much more advanced now...like some other OS's have been for years! Shame it took them so long to add such a user friendly feature to quickly and easily toggle differnt radios on an off . Time to delete 3.3GB of apps and what-not!

"Downloading the new software over Wi-Fi would be a good idea as otherwise, it will surely eat up a great fraction of your data allowance." You have to be connected to Wi-Fi, otherwise it won't let you download. How did all the PA authors miss this?

Just try again in another hour. The update was pushed globally, so updating issues are bound to happen.

You'll get the update soon. By the sound of it, people are having trouble downloading the update. So by the time you get it, you should be problem free.
