    iPad Air is updating now. Download already complete.

    I was going to use the iTunes update method, but got tired of iTunes insisting that iOS 8.4.1 was the latest version; so I broke down and started the OTA update. Took three tries before I got through to the server.

    Pre-checklist completed:

    • iPad backed up on the computer and in iCloud.
    • Did a reset just before starting the backup.
    • Fingers crossed.

    I tried it on my iPad 4 and I get a failure notice about 2 seconds into the download every time it try.

    Just keep trying. It will get through eventually. Or not. There is always tomorrow.

    Done. Second reset done.

    Seing the lower-case keyboard was a bit disorienting, but I shall recover. After all, I approve of the change, mightily. Now to find the iCloud Drive icon it said it was going to put on my screen.

    Happy updating, everyone.

    I figured out what the problem was. I was downloading a high definition TV show to my computer. This was using too much bandwidth for the update to succeed. After pausing the TV show download, the iPad update is progressing normally.:)

    Cool. The download took a lot less time this year, as Apple promised it would.

    Now proceeding with the unthinkably stupid, and updating my iPhone on the first day. At least this time I'm using iTunes.

    I'm confused. The fine print on Apple's site seems to imply that in iOS 9, Siri no longer runs on iPad 3. I'm not too keen on losing Siri, if that's true. Anyone confirm?

    From Apple's iOS 9 page:
    1. Siri is available on iPhone 4s or later, iPad Pro, iPad Air or later, iPad (4th generation), iPad mini or later, and iPod touch (5th generation or later) and requires Internet access. Siri may not be available in all languages or in all areas, and features may vary by area. Mobile data charges may apply.
    Maybe it's the proactive version. An exact list of features per device is not available yet.

    All devices up and running. No issues at this time.

    The iTunes update was taking forever, then I realized that both my Backblaze and Time Machine backups were running. Once stopped things proceeded at a more reasonable pace.
