RUMOR: iOS 5 to Feature Over-the-Air Updates
Posted on May 5, 2011 by eli courey
A rumor is going around that Apple is negotiating with Verizon for over-the-air updates to iOS on the iPhone. Currently, any updates to the iPhone’s OS have to be done by connecting the device to a Mac or PC running iTunes using a USB cable. My guess is that smaller patches will be downloadable over 3G or Wi-Fi, while larger updates will only download over Wi-Fi. I’m assuming the negotiations rumored to be going on have something to do with what should be considered a small patch and and a large patch.
