Updating your iOS Operating System (iPhone/iPad/iPod)
To update your operating system, please wait until you can connect your device to a power source and will not need to use the device for around an hour, as these software updates can sometimes awhile.
Once you are able to do this, please follow these steps:
- Go to the ‘Settings’ app on your device.
- Tap into 'General'
- Tap into 'Software Updates'
- Choose to install the latest iOS update.
* Please note that if you are running an older device (ex: iPhone 4 or iPad 1st Generation), your device may not be able to update past iOS 8. As Apple begins to phase out iOS 8, GoSpotCheck is also focusing our app design towards iOS 9 and higher. For this reason, we highly recommend using the GoSpotCheck app on devices that support iOS 9 and higher.
