Updating iphone software other computer

Developers work hard to come up with cool new features that will make your life easier, and if you don't update, you won't be able to take advantage of those.

There are other reasons to keep your phone, desktop computer, and their corresponding software up to date, too.

Luckily for apps, you can turn on automatic downloads so you never have to think about updating an app again — they'll update on their own (just be sure to keep "Use Cellular Data" switched off so your cell phone bill doesn't take a toll).

But as for your mobile or desktop OS, you have to give the device permission, accept the updated agreement terms, and then go through with the download.

Here's why: The most important reason to keep your phone and computer up to date is security.

There are flaws with any software system — and it's just a matter of time before someone discovers them.

Companies such as Apple and Google, as well as major apps, all have employees whose job is to try to hack into their own product (Google even has an entire badass team of women white hat hackers that do this).

Their goal is to discover and fix flaws before malicious hackers can take an advantage of them. Hopefully, the security researchers (the aforementioned white hat hackers) figure out the issues first, but occasionally criminals get creative, or identify a security hole first.

If you previously tried out a beta version of i OS ahead of its full release, you should note that in order to get upcoming i OS releases you will need to remove the Apple configuration profile from your device.

, you think to yourself, and you put off the software update until another day. Apple just released i OS 9.3, so it's time for i Phone owners to connect their phone to a Wi-Fi network and let it update for five minutes.

With You Tube's latest update, out today, it finally incorporates split screen mode on the i Pad, so you can watch video while working on something else (multitasking FTW).

And in i OS 9.3, there's a new "Night Shift" mode you can switch on that makes your phone screen a warmer, more sleep-friendly hue once the sun goes down.

We cover some important preparation steps first; but you can jump to the update process if you prefer. Use i Cloud or i Tunes to back up your i Phone, i Pad or i Pod touch.
