Is it necessary to install iOS 6 on a clean install, or will a download work as well? I just bought a 4s and I'm waiting for iOS 6. I had a miserable experience going from iOS 3 to 4 on my 3gs and 5 slowed it down horribly...

If you're on iOS 5 you will be able to use the OTA feature and update wirelessly.

I had this question as well. I am running IOS 6 GM and cannot go back to IOS 5. But i am pretty sure when i try to update it will say that i already have the latest version when i try to download it. So how do i download the actual copy released by Apple today. I know that it should be the same as the gm copy. But will there be a link for that?
