Apple will reportedly begin offering over-the-air firmware updates after the release of iOS 5.0, according to 9to5Mac.

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.

Oh... What does that means for ppl who jailbreak & unlock their devices... Will apple be able to prevent that from happening with this over the air updates???

\"Following point updates\". Yeah, right. One update a week until they get the software right. In that view, I miss the good ol\' days when software wasn\'t so easily patchable all the time, so the developers needed to be more careful with the sh!t they released...

Don\'t Android phones update over the air? If that\'s the case, why does Apple have to get permission from AT&T and Verizon to do so?

Good question. Anyone have an answer?

Android updates are very very small if they did big updates then they would need permission Android just puts any major updates (like apples iOS 3 then iOS 4) into new phones rather than giving the older ones a update
