I would like to update my iPhone to iOS 7 so I have attempted to do so for 3 hours now, and at about halfway through the 1+ GB download it times out... which returns my downloaded data to zero, so I have to start over. Since iTunes won't resume the download, and starts over from scratch every time, I've downloaded the equivalent of 3 to 4 GB by now... but with nothing to show for it.


Since iTunes can't seem to maintain a stable connection or resume a download, I would like to download the package manually or something of that nature... but of course I see no option for that.


I don't understand what the issue is, Yes sometimes my connection goes up and down in speed because I share it, but I can download anything without much issue in other circumstances.
