Well my question is simple, does iTunes need to have an internet connection to be able to download and update to a newer firmware an iPhone?

I mean, if I plug my iPhone to a computer that does not have an internet connection will iTunes still be able to update to a new firmware? Or is it needed to have an internet connection in order to update the firmware on the iPhone?


Any help will be greatly appreciated

How to turn off the auto-update?

Could you help me find where to turn the auto-update off so i wont have problems everytime I plug my iPhone to my pc, cause I'm worried that iTunes will auto-update my iPhone to the 1.1.1 firmware and I obviously don't want that to happen.


Thanks
