How to install iOS 10

Before you get started

First things first I'm assuming you are running the latest iOS available.

You'll want to make sure you back up, either by

  • Making sure you have iCloud backup turned on (settings/iCloud/Backup) and tapping backup now

  • Plugging into your computer and letting iTunes back it up for you

Upgrading to iOS 10

On the 13th iOS 10 will start to roll out. The servers are going to be busy so it might take a while to update, be patient.

  • Settings
  • General
  • Software Update

You should then see that iOS 10 is available. Download and install.

On starting it up you may be asked to enter your iCloud credentials, don't. You can just skip this entry. The problem with doing this is for some reason iOS updates both your App Store and iCloud login to be the same. If like me you have two separate ones it's a pain.

Good luck and let me know how you get on.
