I'm running on iOS 4.0.1 and downloaded the 4.0.2 in iTunes (but NOT installed in my iPhone yet, its just downloaded). So everytime I click the "Update" button, it tells me if I want to install the 4.0.2 update that has been downloaded days ago. I decided not to install it since iOS 4.1 is coming.

My question is, when iOS 4.1 becomes available from the Apple server and I click "Update", will iTunes detect the new 4.1 and overwrite 4.0.2 stored in my iTunes? Or do I need to install 4.0.2 in my iPhone first to give way for iTunes to detect 4.1 for download?

Thanks in advance!

    You can delete the unused update from your computer. The next time that iTunes notifies you that there is an update available, you don't have to accept it.

    Depending on your computer system it is stored

    Mac: ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates

    Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

    Windows Vista/7: \Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

    The update will be named iPhone2,14.0.2_8A400Restore.ipsw or similar
