On a Mac: i Tunes automatically downloads and installs the upgrade.
When you start i Tunes after installing an upgrade, you must click the option to agree to Apple’s License Agreement. i Tunes automatically installs the update into your i Pod or i Phone.
Did you know that Apple often updates i OS, adding new features and cool new tools?
To make sure that your i Phone is running the latest version of i OS, you'll need to connect it to your computer and download the update using i Tunes.
IPhone users are getting another alert for Apple's latest version of its mobile operating system. If you tap Install Tonight, just plug your i OS device into power before you go to sleep. Whether you use i Tunes or update wirelessly, you'll have the same amount of free space on your device after you update. Apple has some tips on its website, and some other publications do to.
In that case, a pop-up window announcing the upgrade appears when you launch i Tunes.
If you see that window and want to upgrade, just follow the onscreen instructions and you'll be running the i Tunes in no time.
But cybersecurity experts are urging consumers not to ignore this update, which fixes an unprecedented type of security flaw. Some i OS software updates aren't available wirelessly.
Owners of i Phone 4s and later, i Pad 2 and later, i Pod touch (5th generation) and later can get this update, according to Apple's support website. If a message asks to temporarily remove apps because i OS needs more space for the update, tap Continue or Cancel. VPN or proxy connections might prevent your device from contacting the i OS update servers.
