ota updates

Today at WWDC Apple announced what everyone has been waiting for, OTA updates. Ever since the iPhone has been around you have had to tether the phone to your laptop or pc to do updates and sync. In iOS 5, all updates and sync can be done over the air. The biggest reason that Apple did this was because when someone purchased an iPhone or an iPad it immediately needed to be connected to iTunes. What about the people who don’t own a computer or want to replace their computer?
