Months after having Apple’s iOS 9 compromised by the U.S. Government after a six-week-long legal battle, the company had released its latest iOS version, the iOS 10. Just like what the company has revealed during their official public announcement, the iOS 10 has lots of new features to offer aside from the fact that the existing features had undergone significant improvements. In addition to all of these, there’s definitely no doubt that iOS 10 contains the latest security features, features that will surely find by iOS 9 users very handy. Even though the company doesn’t emphasize the security breach as one of their reasons, Apple recommends all of its users (especially iOS 9 users) to download and upgrade to the latest iOS version.
Some people, especially those who aren’t gifted when it comes to understanding technology will think that upgrading can be very hard. The truth is, however, even the most basic Apple gadget user can easily upgrade his or her gadget. If you’re somewhat interested, listed below are the step-by-step instructions so that you can upgrade your iPad or iPhone gadget to iOS 10.
- Determine whether your Apple Gadget supports the latest iOS update. After releasing the beta version of iOS 10, the company had said officially that iPhones starting from iPhone 5 up to iPhone 6s Plus (eight iPhones in all) are supported. When it comes to iPads, on the other hand, iPads mini 2 to 4, iPad Pro (9.7 and 12.9-inch), iPad Air and Air 2, and both iPad 4th and 6th generations are supported. Needless to say, if your gadget happens to be one of these, you can download and install iOS 10 in it.
