The servers are overloaded. There are a hundred million people all trying to download iOS 7 at one time. Try again later

I highly recommend that you back up before you install.

Don't hold your breath - four IOS devices here, and only one managed to COMPLETE the download - the others keep dying, my iPad 3 died with just a minute left on the download. And whenver it dies, you have to start over from the beginning... And my iPhone won't even see the update. It's still on 6.1.2, and so I'm trying to see if taking it to 6.1.4 will then let it see 7.0 out there, but I can't even get the 6.1.4 to download for more than 15 or 20 seconds before it's killed again...
Pretty much typical Apple software launch issues, lots of people and nowhere near enough bandwidth on their end. Too bad they didn't do a better job of distributing things to balance the load around the world to try to avoid some of this.
It becomes just a matter of continuing to try, or simply waiting a day or two until the insanity dies down...
