Every year Apple presents a major software update at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Small updates and fixes for iPhone users are released sporadically throughout the year. The major annual iOS update often brings user interface improvements, new features, and a number of bug fixes. It is recommended that iPhone users stay up to date on their software in order to maintain their privacy and security. Typically Apple sends a notification when an update is rolled out to all compatible iPhone phones, but users can also manually check for an update and download it.

How to update your iPhone software

There are several ways to update the software on your iPhone. The easiest way is to set it to automatic so that your device will automatically update overnight while it is charging. However, if you want to take control of the download patterns yourself, we’ve mentioned two options for upgrading. One is wireless using your iPhone and the other is using a Mac computer. Before we start explaining the process, it is important that you back up your data.

Update your iPhone wirelessly

  1. Connect your iPhone to a charger. Make sure your Wi-Fi connection is strong and protected. Note that this requires Wi-Fi and cannot be done using a cellular data connection.

  2. Go to on your iPhone Settings> General> Software update.

  3. When a new update is available, details about the iOS update and its changelog will be mentioned. When you are satisfied, click Download and install Possibility. Your download will now start. The speed depends on how fast your internet connection is.

  4. When the download is complete, tap Install now. You can also tap and select Later Install tonight or Remind me later. When you type Install tonight, just plug your device in before you go to sleep. Your device will automatically update overnight.

  5. The iPhone may ask for your passcode / password / fingerprint before starting the installation. Enter the required information and the installation process should begin.

  6. Once the installation process is complete, the iPhone will restart.

  7. If you are using iOS 12 or later, the iPhone can be updated automatically overnight even while it is charging. To enable automatic updates, go to Settings> General> Software update> Customize automatic updates, then turn it on Install iOS updates. Even after enabling this, some updates may still need to be installed manually.

Update your iPhone using your computer

If the wireless method doesn’t work for you, you can try using a computer to update. You will need a Wi-Fi or Ethernet network before performing the update.

  1. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer using the charging cable. On a Mac with macOS Catalina 10.15, open it finder. Open on a Mac with macOS Mojave 10.14 or earlier, or on a PC iTunes.

  2. After the phone loads, click Check for update under General or Settings.

  3. Next, click Download and update.

  4. Enter your passcode when prompted. Follow the instructions on the screen to walk you through the rest of the process.
