Installing iOS 7!
As we told you earlier, you can either install iOS 7 over-the-air or you can do it by
connecting to computer. The easier process is over-the-air installation, but you need a
reliable Wi-Fi network because this update can take over 1 Gigabyte of data. Installing by
connecting to computer is faster. We will ﬁrst explain how perform over-the-air update and
then update by connecting to computer.!
Installing iOS 7 Over-the air!
This process is fairly simple, in most cases you might see a red badge on the settings icon
when a software update is available from Apple. To download and install
this update you have to open settings and navigate to General > Software
Update. There you will see the version name of the new software waiting
to be installed.!
Even if the settings icon is not showing the red badge and you know there is a update
available, you can force your device to search for the update by above mentioned process.!
Installing iOS 7 over-the-air might take some time so make sure your device has over 50
percent of charge remaining, if not then plug in your device to a charging point before
starting the update.!
Once you press the download and install button, you will have to go through few on screen
instructions and then iOS 7 will be downloaded and installed all by itself.!
Installing iOS 7 via computer!
If you want to install the update via your computer, you just have to plug your phone to the
computer and open iTunes. Ideally iTunes should prompt you to update your device to iOS
7, if you get no such message then you can check for the update yourself by clicking
Check for Updates button on Summary screen of your device.!
This will check and show you the available iOS 7 update. By clicking on download and
update button your update will begin. You can wait for the download to be completed or
you can continue with other tasks. Once the download is complete iTunes will start the
update process, your device will restart and new iOS will be installed. All your data will be
safe during this update. However if something goes wrong in the process and your data is
compromised, you can always restore the data using the backup you made before starting
the update process.!

device. Go on, play and familiarize yourself with the new operating
system. If you have any problem in the install process then let us know
