The complete guide to iOS 9, How to update iOS 9?

(A Complete Guide to Upgrade to iOS 9)
How to update to iOS 9:
The complete guide iOS 9, the new operating system software for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, was unveiled during this year 2015 in June and finally becomes available to all on 16 September. You've probably got three questions: can I update my iPhone or iPad to iOS 9, should I update my iPhone or iPad to iOS 9 and (if the answer to the first two is yes)

How can, I make the upgrade?
iOS 9 has just arrived! If you go to Settings > General > Software Update you should see the download. But be cautious! Make sure you have a backup and expect the download to take ages.

Hang on a minute... I'm trying and I can't download it!

A few people are seeing error messages when they try to download iOS 9 on their iPads and iPhones; this is probably due to the sheer volume of traffic right now as half the world tries to download the update. Patience is a virtue. But if you want to try downloading via iTunes you may have more success. Here's how to download the iOS 9 update via iTunes.

How to update to iOS 9: The basics?

iOS is the operating system software that runs on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices. It's the underlying framework that organises, launches and runs other apps, and can perform a number of features of its own. iOS 9 is the newest update to iOS, and will launch officially to the public on 16 September 2015.

If you've got an iPhone 4s (or later), an iPad 2 (or later), either of the iPad mini models, or a fifth-gen iPod touch, your device is officially rated as iOS 9-compatible, and you can update to iOS 9 for free when it comes out. (We discuss the list of compatible devices in a little more detail in the next section.) You can also access the iOS 9 beta.

We discuss iOS 9 as a single entity for most of this article, but we should quickly acknowledge that a number of smaller point upgrades will be released throughout its year-long lifetime. Don't expect any big differences between these - mostly these will incorporate security updates, fixes and minor tweaks. When you update your device to iOS 9 (or to iOS 8, while it's still available) you will automatically get the most recent version that is available.

We'll address these questions in that order in our complete guide to iOS upgrades.
