iOS 6 is now available for everyone to download. Most users are best served updating to iOS 6 through OTA or iTunes, but advanced users can upgrade manually with firmware files. This has several advantages, particularly for those upgrading multiple devices in a household or institution, or for those updating from older versions of iOS.

The following firmware links are hosted directly by Apple, using IPSW files requires iTunes. You will want to have the latest version of iTunes installed before attempting a direct firmware update with IPSW.

iPhone
iPhone 5 GSM
iPhone 5 CDMA
iPhone 4S
iPhone 4 GSM
iPhone 4 CDMA
iPhone 4 (3,2)
Phone 3GS

iPad

iPad 3 LTE GSM
iPad 3 LTE CDMA
iPad 3 Wi-Fi
iPad 2 3G GSM
iPad 2 3G CDMA
iPad 2 Wi-Fi
iPad 2 (2,4)

iPod

iPod touch 4th gen
iPod touch 5th gen

Regardless of how you decide to upgrade to iOS 6, just remember to back up first. The likelihood of something going wrong is slim but it’s better safe than sorry.

Sorry haven't had the time yet, so I did it now. For your iPhone make sure you select the GSM file.

The reason the links are posted here FEJ, is because of the overload on some servers from Apple when using iTunes or your device direct.
