How to Download iOS 7

iOS 7, the next foremost revise to Apple's wireless operating system, out now, as of 1:00 p.m. to the east time, 10 a.m. Pacific.

Okay, so how do you get it? And what do you need to do before you download and install it?

1. ascertain Your apparatus
First you need to make certain you have a matching apparatus. iOS 7 will work on iPhones that are iPhone 4 and later, Retina brandish iPads, iPad 2, and fifth-generation iPod touch. Not all apparatus will get every new characteristic available in iOS 7. For demonstration, iPhone 4 won't have Siri or the panoramic camera characteristic.

iOS 7 will furthermore come preinstalled on the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, which will be accessible September 20.

2. conclude to Download Now or subsequent
Not every person will desire to download iOS 7 right away. Why? Because the crush of users all endeavouring to get it ASAP will expected gathering Apple's servers, making the functioning scheme very slow to download.

delay until later this night or tomorrow, and the download and installation will go much much quicker. The update furthermore appears to proceed much quicker via iTunes than over the air (explained farther below).

3. revise iTunes (If Backing Up To or Installing From iTunes)
If you back up your iPhone or iPad to iTunes, or if you design to establish iOS 7 from iTunes, you have to ascertain whether you're running the latest type (11.0.5). To ascertain, launch iTunes, and proceed to Help > ascertain for revisions.

Install and updates and restart iTunes.

4. Back Up Your Device
This step may be the lone most important one to pursue. Back up your iOS apparatus!

With the newest type of iTunes installed, you can go ahead and back up your iPhone, iPad, or iPod feel utilising iTunes.

on the other hand, you can back it up to iCloud. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup. Under Backup, turn on the swap for iCloud Backup.

5. Update iOS
When iOS 7 becomes accessible, you can revise wirelessly, furthermore known as over the air, which for most people with a good Wi-Fi connection will be the simplest method. But it could take much longer than the second method, which I'll interpret second.

Over the Air (via Wi-Fi)
On your device, go to:
backgrounds > General > programs revise

You'll glimpse directions there to download and establish it. You may desire to plug in your device because the download and setting up process may drain the electric battery.

By iTunes
Alternatively, you can revise your programs via iTunes. This is the procedure I favour, and which I recommend.

Plug your iPhone, iPad, or iPod feel into your computer with the USB cord and Launch iTunes (if it doesn't open automatically). On the left side of iTunes, find your apparatus, for demonstration, "Jill's Phone," and click it.

In the center of the computer display, you'll glimpse type" and a button "Check for Update." bang "Check for Update."

A dialog carton will tell you that a new programs type is accessible. choose "Download and revise" or just "Download." In the past, "Download and revise" hasn't habitually worked for me. The other choice to "Download" has, though, but it can take a while if the mesh is jammed with persons endeavouring to upgrade to iOS 7. You'll have to push one more button in the center of your iTunes window in alignment to put the functioning system up on your phone.

6. Be persevering!
The inferior thing you can do during an revise is cut off it, so just be patient and let iOS 7 do its thing. If you're troubled to get iOS 7, just be mindful of when the apparatus shuts down completely to reboot. Leave it solely until you glimpse a computer display that prompts you for action.
