Updating iphone software new computer
You can download and install updates directly from your device, or you can use i Tunes.
A new version of the i OS for your device brings new features, bug fixes, and exciting changes to the way you use your phone.
If you have several i Phones, i Pads, or i Pods that need updating to the latest version of i OS, you can use a nice trick to save some bandwidth and download a single i OS update file to apply to multiple devices from either Mac OS X or Windows.
This is a perfect solution for a family that has multiple i Phones or i Pads that need updating, particularly when you don’t want to download the same firmware multiple times.
To be clear, the i OS devices must be of the same type and model, meaning three different i Phone 4s can use the same firmware, but an i Phone 4 can’t use the same update file as an i Pad 2 would, and an i Pod touch can’t use an i Phone 4S update file, and so on.
Accept all prompts necessary to install the updated software.
The resulting OTA update can often be 1/12 the size of a full firmware file, and although they can’t be shared between multiple devices the small size of the on-device update can make it a valid choice for the bandwidth conscious.
The newest version of Apple's software for i Phone, i Pad and i Pod Touch is here, and for the first time users are able to download the updated i OS for their devices without connecting them to a computer.
But don't worry: the process is pretty painless.
Here's a guide that explains exactly how to get the latest i OS software on your i Phone.Apple delivers its i Phone software updates through i Tunes, so the first thing you should do is make sure you have the most recent version of i Tunes running on your computer.
