  1. Plug in your device to a power source.
  2. Tap Settings > General > Software Update.
    ios-update
  3. Tap Download and Install to download the update. It might already start if you’re connected to WiFi and power.
  4. Tap Install when the download completes, or tap Later to install the update later.
