If you have ringtones you need to restore, make sure you visit the restore URL from the device in question (rather than from your Mac or PC).'

The update for an iPHone 6 is a 1.75GB download through iTunes. The over-the-air (OTA) version is a tiny fraction of that size, but on our test unit, the update process didn't show the download size. Please post any data you have in the comments below.
