They cannot get to the incremental OTA updates fast enough. I just sat through the 1.5 hour download and update process for 4.3.4 this morning and, ta-da, here’s another 650+MB download to fix something that shouldn’t take more than a couple of MB of file exchanges.

Color me skeptical, but I wouldn’t trust OTA/incremental updates from Apple ... too many things that can go wrong and their track record on software quality control isn’t exactly stellar. You’ll probably end up downloading/installing the whole package anyway, provided that your device isn’t completely hosed by an OTA update that went wrong.

Took about 10 minutes to update my phone just now. Probably would have taken less time if I wasn’t screwing around in Safari at the same time.

@2: I hear you, I gave up on incremental updates for iTunes some time ago due to too many borked installations, but with their paranoia about jail breaking, I wind up having to download each update package for each and every iOS device in the household and, while I’m glad MichaelO apparently lives much closer to an Apple server cluster than I do, I’ve never had an iOS package that took less than an hour to download, and I’ve had ones that took well over 4 hours to deliver. Heck, I’ve had ones that their little signature expired before it finished downloading and I had to download the entire package a second time for the same device. Restoring from a back up every now and again has still got to be a net savings on time versus the system that’s in place now.
