This morning, I updated 37 iPads from iOS 5 to iOS 5.0.1 in less than two hours. I set them out on a table and walked down the line hitting “update” on each, then walked away.
After all is said and done, this may actually be my favorite thing about iOS 5. OTA updates just work and are fast as hell.
Best of all, no computer required. This will mean a huge percentage of people who previously didn’t update will now update. You’d be surprised how many people never actually sync with a machine. Now they don’t have to.
