Before you go ahead with installing iOS 10 / 10.0.1 / 10.0.2 on your device, it’s also highly recommended that you make a complete backup of your device, either using iTunes or to iCloud, before installing a major upgrade such as iOS 10. Chances are there that you can always revert back to your old setup in case anything goes wrong during or after the update. Once you are done with the backup, follow the instructions below to update to iOS 10.

OTA Update: How to download and install iOS 10

This method is the easiest way to update your compatible device to iOS 10 via OTA update. And fastest way, of course. It probably isn’t the best as with this method, some un-needed files are usually transferred over from the previous operating system, occupying unnecessary disk space and resulting in performance issues. It’s up to you, once you’re satisfied, you can follow the instructions below to get onto iOS 10.

Step 1: On your device, 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.



That’s it! It’s so simple.

If you want to install iOS 10 / 10.0.1 as a fresh one, follow these steps.

Clean Install: How to download and install iOS 10

Clean installation is what we actually recommend the best way to go as iOS 10 is a major firmware update and it’s always better to start fresh to make 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 tailored for your device from here: Download iOS 10.1 IPSW Links For iPhone And iPad [Final Version].

Step 3: Turn off Find My iPhone on your device. To do this, go 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.


Step 6: Next, if you are a Windows user, you need to hold the Shift key, for Mac users this will be the Alt key, and then click on the Restore iPhone... button. iTunes will now prompt you to select the IPSW firmware file. Select the iOS 10 / 10.1 / 10.0.1 / 10.0.2 / 10.0.3 firmware file you downloaded earlier.

Note: Important to keep in mind that this will wipe your device completely. Make sure you have backed up as explained earlier in this post before updating to iOS 10 / 10.0.1.

Step 7: Now sit back and have a coffee as iTunes installs iOS 10 on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. It depends on the speed of your computer and the type of device you are installing it on, so be patient as this could take some time.

Once installed, you device will reboot automatically and you’ll be greeted with Hello screen of iOS 10.
