For several iDevices:
A whopping 666.2 MB large!
We are working on transferring iTunes from an old desktop to an HP TouchSmart PC that is hanging on a wall in a small desk type alcove for a client.
When we plugged their iPhone 4 into the system iTunes wanted to update right away. The connection here is fairly quick so we did not have to wait too long for 666.2 MB, though long enough, while the update on the phone took somewhere around 10 minutes.
We have a few other iDevices sitting here on the desk waiting for their turn to be plugged in so we shall see if there are any additional device firmware updates that need to happen.
The verdict is in on the iPad:
Weighing in at 593.3 MB all hopes were dashed that the previous six hundred Megabyte file would also do for the iPad.
And then the iPod Touch:
Yet another six hundred plus Megabyte download. There are a few more iPod Touches that need to be updated. Hopefully the above file will be used for the others. Otherwise this will turn into a very painful process as there are a few more to go. :(
