Question by Dafrumdamentalist: How can I upgrade my i pad IOS with a third world internet connection. Can it be zipped and sent in an email?
When I try to upgrade my i pad ios online my laptop gives me an estimate of 23 hrs. I cannot have uninterrupted access for that long. Thanks.

It should be possible to zip the ipsw (iOS are saved in this format) and email it. However, zipping the file will still leave a large ZIP. It wouldn’t take so long, but that may still pose a problem for you.
If you CAN download and extract the ZIP, you would need to use iTunes to update it. There are guides on the Internet as to how to make iTunes use a local file to upgrade.
