If you are an iPhone holder, it can be confusing when to update the latest software and how often you should be updating. Apple advises us to update regularly so that you don’t miss out on their latest features.

Last week Apple released their iOS 9 software for iPhones and iPads.

We’ve got a few tips to help you stay up to date.

Here is how you can update wirelessly:

1. Before you begin updating, make a backup of your device using iTunes or iCloud. Then, make sure your phone is connected to a power source and Wifi. Next, go to the Setting menu and select General.

step 1









2. This will take you to a new page for you to select the Software Update menu.










3. This page will appear on your phone, simple click download and install. At this point a message might pop up asking you to delete apps because you don’t have enough space. Click Continue or Cancel.

If you decide to Continue, iOS will reinstall apps that it removed. Generally updates are quite quick (up to 15 minutes), however if the update is large it can take longer. You might also be prompted to enter your password (this is your Apple ID).











Apple will normally send a notification when a new update is released. If you don’t get the message then check the Software Update menu every couple of months and continue with the aforementioned steps.

  1. Not happy with this update, there appears to be a problem in calendars with alerts, you can’t set 2 different alerts as I usually do it reverts both to the same time as the last one entered.

  2. The iPad lessons guy recommended people don’t rush to upgrade as it has too many problems. Let Apple sort them out first.

  3. I do not have a iPhone or iPad – just haven’t got it anymore to sort out all this stuff = too hard basket!

  4. Haven’t updated any of my Apple products yet….although there was a report that some IOS9 bugs have been fixed in the last 24 hrs. Just a tip – if your iPad is “full as a boot” & you don’t have enough “disk space/ storage”……connect the iPad to a PC (Windows) with iTunes installed, sign in to iTunes on the PC and initiate & process the update….it will then use the PC’s storage for the “temporary files needed to install the IOS update :->)

  5. It is best to update by syncing your ipad or iphone to your computer; also takes up less space on your device doing it that way.
