    I started the download, but stopped it when I saw the file size was 737MB.  Can anyone else confirm the size of this file?

    yes for my ipod touch, I saw the file download in iTunes was 700mb so I stopped it. So I unplugged it and did a wirless Software Update from the ipod touch. Then I did the same wireless software update from my iPhone. I beleive the wireless update was 50MB, and it took s few minutes to download and update each device. They are running on IOS 5.01 and no loss of any data.

    If you're going from 4. something to 5.01 then it might be that big. 5.0 to 5.01 is much smaller. whole process took me about 15 minutes, download and installation

    I've got 5.0 installed already.  Wny do I get a 737MB file going to 5.0.1?

    Hi. I noticed that large file size as well. However doing the update over the air as opposed to through iTunes and the file size is dramatically smaller (approx 40mB)

    Thats what I saw too, my ipod touch and iPhone were both running 5.0 Others have reported it as well. If you use iTunes to go from 5.0 to 5.01 iTunes is downloading the whole IOS image, 700MB. If you do the Software Update on the device, iPad, Ipod Touch, or iPhone the download is an incremental update of about 50MB.

    When you download to iTunes on a computer it is the entire iOS file because it is then stored on the computer and any time that you need to restore to the factory settings it is immediately there without having to download it again. You should also find the iOS 5 upgrade file in your trash, as it will be discarded for the new file.

    Stedman, what was the file DOWNLOAD size?  Is this different than what is actually installed?  I was doing an OTA update too, but got spooked when I saw that iTunes was downloading a huge file.

  • Skydiver119 Level 7 Level 7 (24,110 points)

    I used iTunes to do the update and I wasn't confronted with a 700 meg download. I didn't do it over the air (unless you count that my laptop is connected to the net via home wifi)

     

    Unless that's it...if your computer is hardwired it goes for 700 megs, if you're on wifi, either with the computer and itunes or through your device, then it triggers a 50 meg download.

    Bingo.  Thanks DahVeed.  I see what I was doing wrong now.  There was a software update to the iPad available through iTunes, which was 737MB.  There was also a software update available through the device, which shows about 53 MB.  I think I'll do the 53 MB version!

    I've updated to 5.0.1 and I can use Siri with no problems.

     

    Try resetting your Network settings:

     

    Go into Settings/general/ at the bottom of the screen you will see Reset, next you will see amongst other options 'RESET NETWORK SETTINGS'. I have read that this can sometimes sort out issues with Siri.

     

    Bear in mind though, that RESET NETWORK SETTINGS will erase any stored wifi passwords!
