    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.

    Let's hope some great wisdom will come from those who know the answer.

    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.

    You did a full replacement installation and not an over the air delta update. Apple should allow you to chose whether or not to do an update or a full install in a future version of iTunes.

    The wifi OTA update is very fast. Took me 5 minutes

    They result in the same thing in the end

    Same here. One of the Benifits of IOS 5 is the OTA update feature.

    If you already upgraded to iOS 5, all you have to do is update over wi-fi from iPad: Settings> General> Software Update > follow directions. No restoring or backing up needed.

    I did six iDevices. Took about 10 minutes each.

    Just make sure you device is charged up, or that you plug into a power source. One of my devices had about 40 percent juice, and it would only download the update, and not install till plugged in.
