Updating iphone with itunes
When you connect an i Phone or i Pad to a computer with i Tunes and an i OS software update is available, you will be notified with a pop-up that tells you a new version of i OS is available and asks if you want to update to the new version of i OS system software.
Additionally, if you click on the “Check for Update” button in i Tunes when an i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch is connected, the same i OS software update process begins and the software will download and attempt to install.
Just tap to play, or even download if you’re going somewhere you won’t have Wi-Fi.
Learn more The i Tunes Store is available on all your devices, which means you can buy that catchy song you just heard or rent that movie you’ve been meaning to see, anytime you want.
Simply disconnect your cable from your current USB port and plug it in to a different port.
Then you can simply select the item in the downloads list and hit the “Delete” key to remove it.
Note this actually stops i Tunes from downloading the update and proceeding with the install, it doesn’t just stop the i OS update notification like what is available from on the device.
After i Tunes alerts you to new software updates being available and after you have clicked to “Check for Update” or “Download and Update”, you need to act fast and move quick to stop the update…
Once the update is installing itself, you need to let it finish because trying to intervene mid-update is a recipe for making the i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch useless and require a full restore.
Some versions of i OS can be downgraded after the fact, so that would be the next approach if you accidentally installed an update you didn’t want, you can learn more about downgrading system software here.
