Clear your phone before update

It is recommended that you do a bit of spring cleaning, before you update your device.

Firstly, remove any unwanted pictures and videos, along with unused apps. This will help in cleaning up the storage space, and making your device less cluttered.

Secondly, make sure that you have a back up. You can store your documents on iTunes or iCloud.

Updating the device is the easiest part, however it might take some time, depending on your internet connection.

While updating, make sure that your device is connected to the charger. Click on the Setting, there you will get an option General, click on it. Another option will open in front of you known as software update, click on, and your update will start.

This year Apple has reduced the size of its update from 4.58GB to 1.3GB. This is done keeping in mind the problem faced by a large number of people, who didn’t have enough storage space.
