iOS Firmware Expired?

This always happens to me. After installing a beta/pre release version of iOS I forget to install the final version when it comes out and the firmware expires. Unlike regular firmware updates I’ve never been prompted by iTunes to perform an update of the firmware when a release version is available. It seems that one has to download it and install it manually. When the firmware expires you end up with a device that has all of the notifications and reminders still showing up but the inability to get to the applications producing those notifications or reminders.

Anyway, this happened to me again the other day. I didn’t feel like addressing it then, but now that I’ve got the time I’m downloading the updated firmware (manually) to install. I found the site iPhoneFirmware.com which keeps track of the direct links to all of the iOS device firmware. Makes it much easier to find what I need. On the downside this looks to be a 30 minute download, so I’ll go do some other development for a while.
