OTA Update: How to download and install iOS 10
By far the easiest way to update your compatible device to iOS 10 is to do it via OTA update method. While it’s easiest and fastest, it probably isn’t the best as with this method, some un-needed files are usually transferred over from the previous operating system, taking unnecessary disk space and resulting in performance issues. But if you can live with that, you can follow the instructions below to get onto iOS 10.
Step 1: From the device itself, head to Settings > General > Software Update.
Step 2: Wait for iOS to check for new OTA update.
Step 3: Once iOS 10 update is found, tap on Download and Install to begin installing the update.
Clean Install: How to download and install IOS 10Clean installing is our recommended way to go as iOS 10 is a major firmware update and it’s always better to start fresh to make sure no battery drainage or performance issues occur. Here’s how to go about clean installing iOS 10 on your device.
Step 1: Update to latest version of iTunes on your Windows PC or Mac.
Step 2: Download IPSW file of iOS 10 / 10.0.1 tailored for your device: iOS 10 / 10.0.1 Download IPSW Links For Final Version Released.
Step 3: Turn off Find My iPhone on the device. To do this, head to Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone and toggle it to off.
Step 4: Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to your computer via the Lightning/USB cable.
Step 5: Now launch iTunes and select your device, as shown in the screenshot below.
Step 6: Next, if you are a Mac user, you need to hold the Alt key, for Windows users this will be the Shift key, and then click on the Restore iPhone… button. iTunes will now prompt you to select the IPSW firmware file. Select the iOS 10 / 10.0.1 firmware file you downloaded earlier.
It’s important to note that this will wipe your device completely. Make sure you have backed up as explained earlier in this post before going ahead with this step.
Step 7: Now sit back and relax as iTunes installs iOS 10 on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Be patient as this could take some time depending on the speed of your computer and the type of device you are installing it on. Once installed, your device will reboot automatically and you’ll be greeted with Hello screen of iOS 10.
