How to get the latest iOS update on your iPhone or iPad

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.

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.
