> Why does apple feel it is okay to send every mobile device an update on a single day?

(a) That's why god invented the concept of take the stress of 
the more contended parts of an operators network.  ;-)
(b) Its not just Apple but any vendor (e.g. Microsloth).... their 
updates are released to the world at the same time.
(c) Your user is paying you to push packets. If that's causing you a 
problem, you either need to review your commercial structure (i.e. 
charge people more) or your technical network design. Face the facts, 
what with everyone jumping on the "cloud" bandwagon, the future is only 
going to see you pushing more packets, not less !  So if you can't stand 
the heat, get out of the kitchen (or the xSP industry). ;-)

No need for you to bash Apple in this instance.
