How to update iOS on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad

I couldn’t find anything similar on Apple’s support site, so I thought I’d do up a quick tutorial for iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad users who have no idea how to go about getting the latest and greatest software updates on their devices. 🙂

In this tutorial, we are updating an iPhone to iOS version 4.3.4

Step 1

Once downloaded, the update will be extracted and automatically installed in your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
This will definitely take some time – so be patient!

Step 5d

When the update is complete, you will need to wait for a short while again while your device restarts.
Remember to leave your device connected to your computer!

Step 6
