    iOS 5.0.1 file size - Really Apple?

    733MB!

    I thought iOS 5 was supposed to do away with bloated update downloads. Or is this an admission that despite the 0.0.1 nomenclature this is a major bug fix?

    Yep, that's how big it is, I updated using my myfi last night so I can vouch for the size.

    Over the air updates only add what they need to now. In other words, it's no longer a complete re-install like it used to be.

    I did my update via iTunes because I had the iPad connected at the time and it was the full 733MB as I said originally. Why do 700+ MB updates via iTunes if you only need a 30MB update via wifi? That's plain dumb on Apples part.

    All I can say is that the iTunes update worked perfectly.
