How to Update Your iPhone’s Operating System to iOS 10

By Dwight Spivey

The latest version of software for the iPhone is iOS 10. To be sure that you have the latest and greatest features, update your iPhone to the latest iOS now (and do so periodically to receive minor upgrades to iOS 10 or future versions of the iOS). If you’ve set up an iCloud account on your iPhone, you’ll receive an alert and can choose to install the update or not, or you can update manually.

To update to iOS 10, follow these easy steps:

  1. Tap Settings. (Be sure you have Wi-Fi enabled and that you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network to perform these steps.)

    If you are not connected to Wi-Fi, go to Settings and choose Wi-Fi. Make sure the toggle button is set to the on position. Once that is complete, choose the Wi-Fi network you’d like to connect to and enter a password, if necessary.

  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap Software Update.

    Your iPhone checks to find the latest iOS version and walks you through the updating procedure if an update is available.
