Re: [SU] iOS 7.0.6 is out

I'm amazed that you could update 4 devices within 5 minutes- for my iPad 2 and iPhone 5, it took iTunes about 10 minutes (5 minutes for each device) just to download the software from Apple. Total update time (for both devices) was about 20 minutes.

Yeah. It only took 1-2 minutes to download but it is taking forever to update. The iPhone has been on the Apple logo screen with the progress bar (which is progressing) for a good 15 minutes already. The iPad 3 seems to be taking just as long.

If you update on the iPhone/iPad itself via OTA, it only does a delta update (only downloads/modifies changed files). Updating via iTunes does what amounts to a full restore.

IF you have an iTunes past 11.1.3 that works...

I did them all simultaneously over my Wi-Fi and it took just about five minutes. IPad 2, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5s, iPad air...

Just did my dads ipad air the same way, 6min15sec. From agreeing to update to reboot after update in place back to working order.
