    So, I installed it. But what's the difference? I'm not seeing any.

    Most of it is under the hood and deals with how apps can talk with one another.

    4.7 gigabytes needed to install? Unless it is really good I think I'll pass.

    My daughter came to the same conclusion, though her phone claimed only just under a gigabyte.

    If you have limited space on your phone/iPad use iTunes to update it. It unpacks the update on your computer so you don't need 4.7GB free on the device.

    My wife's iPad Air needs 7.8GB to install but the iPad itself is only a 16gig version. Time to hook it up to her computer that she never uses (thanks to the ipad).
