iOS 8.1 appears to have gone live at 10:00 Pacific Time.

My iPhone is telling me that it'll take less than 15 minutes to update. If you're updating on the iPhone or iPad instead of iTunes it's quick, but I think you need WiFi and to be plugged into a charger. It may download automatically if both those conditions are met.

Downloading the full restore package in iTunes can take hours, depending on the speed of your internet connection. You only really need that if you have to restore your iPhone or iPad to factory settings.
