Reports are coming up that only after the released of iOS 5.0, Apple will update over-the-air firmware.
According to 9to5Mac, ” will reportedly begin offering over-the-air firmware updates after the release of iOS 5.0.”
Multiple sources say the new feature will debut in iOS 5, meaning iOS 5 will not come over-the-air but following point updates to it will. Just like tethering in iOS 3, Apple has the technology but cannot just unleash it everywhere. Apple and Verizon Wireless are said to have been in talks over these wireless software updates since early this year. Sources could not comment on whether or not Apple is negotiating similar deals with AT&T or international iPhone carriers.
Apple is expected to unveil iOS 5 at WWDC 2011.
