Okay, so before anything, I already know that I'm a a dummy when it comes to stuff like updating and you know, these stuff. Ever since I purchased my iPhone 5, I never updated it, so things started changing and apps started limiting iOS 6 users, so I, too, started thinking about finally updating. To me, it's not as simple and easy as a click of a button or a finger touch on the screen. The thing is, I can't understand the process. Like does updating delete the apps and the data and the notes and all my photos and recordings that I once had? This is what I really want to be answered; it's what matters most to me. I already backed up my iPhone but do not know how to extract the files or view them to check that everything is there. Can someone bear with me and my questions and explain this to me? If be most thankful. Please do not ignore.

I never heard of losing your data during an update but it may be possible. There are 2 ways to update: with itunes or just from your iphone. First just turn on your wifi on your phon and make sure it is charging so it doesn't lose its charge while updating. 3g is not good use wifi. Go to settings and find the software update button. It should be under about i think depending on your ios version. This will search if your phone can update to the latest ios. U can't choose an ealrier version unless u know how but ts more complicated. The lates ios is 9 i think. it should hav instructions for u to install the new update and just wait fo it to do its thing. It will a bar showing its progress and then shutdown and reboot and will be updated.0

Updating doesn't delete anything from your phone. If anything it will only add things & fix them but you should definitely check the Apple website.0
