    iOS 5 will not be available OTA , we will need to sync with iTunes and download it there

    However iOS 5.0.1+ will be OTA

    The update to iOS 4 will work just like very prior update. It will show up in iTunes as an available update when you sync your phone. You download and install just like any other update.

    There will be a large number of early adopters who will jump on it as soon as it's available. The majority of all users will update when they are notified by iTunes it's available, tied to a sync, and this will be over several weeks.

    It is likely that 30% or more will never update.... or will not update until they are forced to in order to run a specific app or get a specific feature.

    We still see a large number of registrations running iOS 3.n

    I would not bet on iOS 5 being available before the iPhone 5 ships however. There is no reason that has to happen. It should be available around the same tome, and it's doubtful the iPhone 5 would ship without it, but bit would not have to be available to the rest of us until later...

    What's more interesting that over the air is delta updates. No more having to download a huge update for several hours on a slow connection. iOS 5 updates will be as small as several hundred bytes to patch a security hole or add new functionality.

    You can expect to see delta updates for Apps as well soon.

    Hmm...and this will definately make a jailbreak far more easily "patched" by apple. More work for the developers of JB.

    I don't have any jail broken devices, but reading through the list of improvements coming with iOs 5 it looks like Apple is making a lot of potential available that has hitherto only been available to the "underworld".

    I don't think Apple will stifle the JB world too much. It looks like a breeding ground for ideas that would cost Apple's R&D department a small fortune.
