    Plugged my iPad into the charger and updated with no problems. Waiting now for my iPhone 5 to complete.

    Seemed painless took less than 10 minues

    It's happening to most, if not all people who own a iPod touch 5g. I am one of them

    iPod Touch 5g and I'm having the same problem.  I tried it connected via USB to a desktop/Windows and to a Macbook.  No joy.  Also tried it connected only over the air but same result.

    Showed up under software update on my Touch but I haven't tried it yet. I'm old fashioned and do my updates via my computer.

    I suspect people will have some issues for a few hours as more and more realize it's out there and get it....apple's servers are notorious for being a bit overwhelmed immediately after a software update.

    THe file shows up as 75ish megs.

    If someone is having issues I'd suggest they wait a few hours and try back later.

    Updated my iPad Mini... took just under 5 minutes.  Running now for about 20 minutes with no problems.

    Yup - ditto. I tried all the tricks. Power off/on. Even Erased iPod Touch and started over. Same Same no matter what I try.

    People who are saying its fine are ppl that dont have the 5th generation. They probably have an older one. The update is 75mb on every device except the ipod touch 5. On the ipod touch 5 it's 90mb

    Just updated about an hour ago. No problems to report on my iPad3.

    NOPE -You are wrong!!!!

     

    Brand NEW iPod Touch 5gen.

     

    Size doesn't matter (in this case, and issue) unless your space is small preventing the update, which is obviously not the issue. Since the issues stands at: Failing Verification, Not Connected to Internet.

     

    Here is what happened to me.

     

    I have several WiFi connections available. CML CMW.

     

    iPad Mini: I was connected on the iPad Mini to CMW and downloaded the update, it installed successfully :-) BUT the WiFi changed to CML when it rebooted.

     

    iPod Touch: I changed to CML WiFi and retried the already downloaded iOS 6.1, and it installed successfully. Interestingly the iPod Touch when it completed the install was using CMW.

     

    Weird - Yes. But now, all my devices are iOS 6.1 :-)

    ****...i just updated on my iPad2.

     

    It downloaded but i got an error message when i tried to install it. Silly me then restarted my iPad. It seemed to install OK. But when it restart after installing it hung at the apple logo and progress bar.

     

    I've forced quit several times, connected it to my Imac and itunes but nothing I do changes the situation.

     

    Its hung!

    oh..Ok...Its install and everything is fine. But it took about 1:30hrs. to restart.

    Got home and everything installed smoothly. So it was either a timing issue with Apple's authentication servers or a firewall issue with the wireless connection at work (I'm guessing the latter.)
