iOS 10.11 (El Capitan) now available in Australia

Apple latest OS (El Capitan) iOS 10.11 was made available on the Australian App Store yesterday (30 September 2015) should I download now or wait a while?

It seems like everyone wants to download El Capitan at the same time.

As of October 1st…. our attempt to download told us it would take almost 2 days ….and then 4 hours into the download it failed.

Our suggestion is to wait a few days until the congestion has past before attempting th upgrade….. then this is how to download and install it.
