First of all… my update/syncing history.
When the iPod touch was first released, wayyyy before the iPhone, I was right there happily enjoying my wondrous new device. There was absolutely no updating “over the air” at that time. You had to have iTunes on your computer, you bought your music and/or apps through iTunes, and you had to plug in your device to move those purchases over to the Touch.
Enter the iPhone. In the beginning, the syncing was done exactly the same way.
And so, when they introduced “over the air” updating, I stubbornly stuck to my computer syncing. After all, it had always worked for me, so why would I change? (change is not easy for me :shock:)
But time moves on, and eventually I caught up with the present. Once I updated over wifi I never looked back.
Worried about the “bigness” of this update, I reverted back to those old days, and I thought it would be better, (safer?), to do it via the computer. Silly me.
Bottom line…. my computer sync failed. I was getting messages about a full start up disc and something else. Let me be clear, here. The failure was completely the fault of MY computer, not the iPhone.
So I UNplugged and just took a leap of faith and updated over wifi.
Happily I had no issues at all.
The update was relatively quick (well under a half hour) and smooth. No complications!
At first sight: It is definitely different … the icons are all redesigned. Not sure how I like it yet, I think it will take some getting used to.
So now I will start exploring features, and I will report back, here, one at a time…..
Here’s a little help with updating if you need it:
