Apple iOS to update over-the-air

iTunes won’t be needed to update your iPhone, iPod or iPad if this update system rolls out internationally

Yesterday we reported that Spotify is aiming to kill iTunes. Today Apple is suggesting over-the-air updates for its iOS devices that don’t require iTunes. Giving up the good fight a bit quick aren’t we, Steve? Of course he probably has some genius Apple Cloud-based software he's preparing to unleash on the world.

For now the over-the-air updates are only planned on Verizon in America for Autumn. But since it’s all rumour at this stage anyway, there’s no reason we won’t get the giant-sized iOS updates wirelessly too. Let’s hope speedy 4G starts to appear soon, as O2 led us to believe it would.
