I purchased an iPad for my parents who live 2 hours drive away from me. The only internet connection they have is the 3G sim chip in their iPad. I want to apply the iOS 5 update, but in order to download it the iPad seems to be required to be plugged in to my iTunes, which is really inconvenient. I also would ned to provide my laptop with a wifi connection from a hotspot on my iPhone, which does not seem stable enough long enough to download the iOS update.
It would be so much easier if I could download the update while at home over my fast fiber optic network connection, then drive the two hours and apply the update.
Is this even possible?
