I have recommended 2 ways to update your iDevices to iOS6 officially, via iTunes or OTA. In case you feel to download the official firmware for your iDevices but you don’t have it on hand. You can try to download the iOS firmware package directly from Apple server. Below are the complete download list for different iDevices, includes iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 (AT&T & Verizon) , iPhone 4S, iPad 2 (Wifi, AT&T, Verizon) , iPad 3 (AT&T, Verizon), iPhone 5, iPod 4th and 5th generation. These are ease for your future firmware restoration as well as jailbreak job.
Updating your iDevices to iOS6, can be run without iTunes via OTA update, you only need the iDevice itself. Another way to update it is via iTunes. Updating iOS 6 via iTunes is more stable as you download the entire package from Apple server to your Mac or Pc before installation. You can also choose to download without install. The iOS firmware package size for iPhone is about 600MB and 1GB for iPad. You can pause and resume your iOS download within iTunes. Check it out the procedure how to make it.
