How to download and install iOS 13

The simple way to download and install iOS 13 updates on your iPhone and iPod is by going into the Settings menu. It is always advisable to take a backup of your iPhone/ iPod touch before downloading and installing iOS 13.

  1. Go to Settings > General > Software Update to check if the update is available for your iPhone. If the iOS 13 is available for your phone, you will see a screen to let you download the update.
  2. You need to tap ‘Download and Install’ to get iOS 13. Typically, a new iOS update takes 1.5-2GB storage space for downloading.
  3. This will start the download process. Make sure your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network as Apple doesn’t allow downloading iOS software updates over mobile data.
  4. After the download process is complete, click ‘Install’ to begin the iOS 13 installation process on your device. You need to make sure your iPhone device has enough battery power before continuing with the process.
  5. When prompted for Apple’s Terms and Conditions for the latest software package and its features, tap ‘Agree’. Your device will restart once to complete the iOS 13 installation.

It should be noted that the iOS 13 update is only for iPhone and iPod devices. For iOS 13 updates on iPads, Apple has designed a dedicated operating system, iPadOS, which will be released on September 30 worldwide.
