    Well, the conservative engineering route would be for the phone to be disabled and everything come in and get installed via the computer as that's the far less potentially glitchy route than attempting an upgrade on a system that's actually running. But as this is just annpuced, yes, it's a potential option. IMHO an improbable one but still not officially denied.


    Can you offer any reason why Apple would see that as a benefit to include?

    Indeed. It had also better be an active & accessible account for the Appstore & for iCloud.

    There are instances where this may not be the case, though probably not seriously common.


    One presumes that the re-installtions are not via the Appstore.

    (Apple OS updates tend to occur even if the ID is hosed, but the Apple applications such as iMovie, etc & 3rd party apps do not).

    why would they be dumb if they're selling them to developing markets and making profit from it? that's what Apple is designed to do.
