you need 2.9 gb free for OTA download.

Now, is the 2.9 gig free something that you need initially to download it but it won't take up that much of space for apps, music, etc. Correct?

You need 2.9 to download + unpack it (basically make two copies of a ~1.4GB updater). Once it's installed, the OS shouldn't be much larger than the previous one, so you'll get the 2.9GB back (I think they're on separate partitions anyway.. haven't looked in awhile).

It's showing on my iPhone, but not yet in iTunes. Am I better off updating via one or the other method?

As long as you have a backup, doesn't really make a difference.

First attempt failed with error on the download. Just a guess but looks like servers having a hard time.

The file is indicated as 665MB to download to my iPhone 4 OTA. I guess they strip out the incompatible stuff to save space?

Yeah. Same here. I hit install a second time and it's downloading, although slowly.

Just failed again. Now even more slowly. Perhaps I shouldn't be surprised. Must. Maintain. Patience.

Been trying to update on my iPad and I've been getting the failure message. Tried 12 times, at least. On the 13th now. Nope. Failed again.

Yup, multiple download failures. Guess I'll wait.

Same here, now, after a reasonably optimistic start. If the current one fails I'll just quit trying for a bit.

Less than 5% ish each time. Taking 10 mins to get to that.

I can't even get a download to start now. Just fails.

5-10% and about 8-10 minutes or so each time. Right now it's showing an hour remaining (just jumped up from 37 minutes) and I've got maybe 2mm of bar filled on the SU screen after 4 minutes or so.

I'm sitting at 2 hours to download.

Stupid question but can I get it once and update all the devices or does each device have to download it?

So far so good on an iPad 3rd gen WiFi only model. First time seems to be the charmer and the download seems to be going very fast or at least it was at first,.....then slowed during the last third of the download,....

Anyway the OTA iOS 7 update space requirement for the iPad was 4.0GB free,...

The iPhone OTA iOS 7 update space requirement is 2.9GB free,.....

If you download the update to your computer and all your phones are the same exact model (same carrier, too, in some cases), you don't have to redownload it. If you have difference devices (iPhone and iPad), each have their own update file.

OK, call me crazy but I just started the iPhone update to iOS 7. It flashed 667MB or something really quick and estimated about 5 min for download. Its a little more then halfway done with the download and is going really fast.

I waited for the iPad to complete the download before starting on the iPhone but the process hasn't gone to completion yet.

Watch this whole thing blowup in my face,.....
