First OTA Update

Earlier today, Apple released an update to iOS 5. The update addresses the battery life issue that iPhone 4S users had reported along with a few other fixes. What makes the update significant though is the fact that this is the first Over The Air (OTA) update. That means that this update can be applied from anywhere you have a WiFi connection.

Simply go to Settings -> General -> Software Update. The update is about 32mb and will take a few minutes to download and install, and requires a device restart.

Ours completed without a hitch on my iPhone 3GS. I'll update my iPad another time.
