No, the update works over-the-air (at least with wifi), but it is a two-stage-process on the iphone 5 which had the bug. Opening settings/software-update loads a fixed updateprogram which when started will load the real 6.0.1-update.

I updated mine using WiFi, so it may only be specific circumstances that require connecting directly to computer.


I upgraded to 6.0.1 as soon as I noticed that it was available. I did it over 3G from my office, which has a weak signal, and it was done in less than 5 minutes, including the reboot.

iOS 6.0.1 can be loaded over the air now, at least on iPhone 5 via AT&T. It downloads an app to your phone that then works around the bug to update iOS to 6.0.1 and conveniently removes itself during the update process. A rather elegant solution, I must say...
