    10-20 minutes, depends on internet speed and hardware speed.

    LOL On my internet is took 30 minutes just to download the update...not including the time to install and verify...

    Of course where Im at 10Mb down/1Mb up is considered fast...

    Just to point out...It has been documented that occasionally iTunes may not properly update or restore...This is noted when the white bar on the iPod/iPhone stops about .25 in./6mm from the end, and just stays there, never verifying the install even after a long period of time. The only way I have seen to get around this is to do the update on a different computer.

    It takes a while, but I found modifying my cable has improved my speeds, but is both dangerous and risky. Normally about 10-1 hour for normal cables.
