Update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Learn how to update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to the latest version of iOS or iPadOS wirelessly or using your computer.

You can wirelessly update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to the latest iOS or iPadOS version. * If the update doesn't appear on your device, you can do it manually on your computer.

Update device wirelessly

When you see a message saying that an update is available, tap Install Now. Alternatively, you can do the following:

  1. Plug your device into a power source and connect it to the internet using Wi-Fi.
  2. Go to Settings> General, then tap Software Update.
  3. Tap "Download and Install". If you get a message asking you to temporarily remove apps because the software needs more space to update, tap Next or Cancel. The removed apps will later be reinstalled by iOS or iPadOS. If you tap "Cancel", here's how to proceed.
  4. To perform the update now, tap on "Install". You can also tap Later, then choose Install Tonight or Remind Me Later. If you tap Install Tonight, just plug your device into a power source before bed. Your device will be updated automatically overnight.
  5. Enter your code when prompted. If you don't know your code, read what to do here.

Error messages or additional storage space required for wireless updates

If you get an error message when you update your device wirelessly, see what to do here. If you need more storage space for a wireless update, update using your computer or manually delete content from your device. After the update, the same amount of free storage space will be available on the device again - regardless of whether you are performing the update using your computer or wirelessly.

Some software updates are not available wirelessly. VPN or proxy connections can prevent the connection between the device and the update servers.


Customize automatic updates

With iOS 12 or later or iPadOS, you can have your device updated automatically while it charges overnight. To have updates happen automatically, go to Settings> General> Software Update> Customize Automatic Updates, then turn on Install iOS Updates. Your device will automatically be updated to the latest version of iOS or iPadOS. Some updates may need to be installed manually.

In iOS 13.6 or iPadOS, you can choose not to download software updates automatically. To do this, go to Settings> General> Software Update> Adjust Automatic Updates, then deselect Download iOS Updates.

Update the device from the computer

If you can't update your device wirelessly, you can update manually using a trusted computer. If your computer is using the personal hotspot on the device being updated, connect your computer to a different WiFi or Ethernet network before updating.

  1. On a Mac with macOS Catalina 10.15, open Finder. On a Mac with macOS Mojave 10.14 or earlier, or on a PC, open iTunes.
  2. Connect the device to your computer.
  3. Find the device on your computer.
  4. Click on "General" or "Settings" and then on "Check for update".
  5. Click on "Load and Update".
  6. Enter your code when prompted. If you don't know your code, read what to do here.

* Upgrading to the latest version of iOS or iPadOS provides the latest features, security updates, and bug fixes. Not all features are available on all devices or in all regions. Battery and system performance can be influenced by many factors, such as network conditions and individual usage; actual results may vary.
