How to prepare my iPhone for iOS 10

It only takes a few hours for Apple's servers to start fuming. In a few hours, many users will not be able to wait any longer and will want to download the final version of iOS 10 and begin to disrupt each and every one of the novelties that the tenth version brings us of the operating system for mobile devices and tablets of the company based in Cupertino. If you had any questions about them, you just have to go through the article of my partner Pablo Aparicio where he details practically all the news, even the smallest ones, which iOS 10 will bring us.

Every time Apple releases the final version of an operating system, it is recommended, as long as we do not acquire the latest iPhone model, perform a clean installation, that is, from scratch, as if we had just bought the iPhone and I only had installed applications that natively come in the iOS operating system.

<p>Throughout the year, you are sure to install applications or games again and again to try to see if you like them or they fit your needs. Although on most occasions we delete them, <strong>always leave a trace on our device</strong>, trace over time can become a storage and performance problem for our device, hence it is best to make a blur and a new account.</p>

The problem that can arise in these cases is that we can lose files or the progress of some games if they do not have synchronization with iCloud. In these cases we must assess whether we can really afford that loss and wait for the application to update offering this possibility, or if we can save the app files without iCloud and then copy them back to the device once we have reinstalled the application.

IOS 10 compatible devices

Every two years, Apple shuts off the faucet of updates to the oldest terminals. Two years ago, the iPhone 4 was not compatible with iOS 8, so those devices still use iOS 7 without being able to upgrade to later versions. On this occasion, it has been the iPhone 4s that has been left out, but it has not been the only one of the devices manufactured by the company that will not receive iOS 10.

Tips to update iOS 10 our iPhone or iPad safely

First of all we must know what kind of information we have stored in our device to proceed to make a copy.

Make a backup with iTunes or iCloud

<p>The fastest and safest option so that during the update process absolutely no data, images or videos of our device are lost <strong>is to make a backup via iTunes</strong>, although we can also do it via iCloud, depending on the storage space you have contracted and the number of applications.</p>
<p>If we update in this way, the information will remain stored on our computer or in iCloud in case something fails during the process and we would have to restore it from scratch. The problem with performing such an update is that <strong>all the garbage you've been accumulating throughout the year</strong>, will continue to be on the device, slowing down its performance, hence it is always recommended to install from scratch.</p>
<h3 id=Perform cleaning of applications and games that we do not use

<p>Although it may seem banal, iOS updates need a free space to download and install. At least it is recommended <strong>have at least 5 GB free in our terminal</strong>. In the 16 GB models this can be a real drama, because really free we only have about 11 GB after discounting what the operating system occupies. However, in the higher capacity models, unless you are a user who does not delete any application, you should have no problem having enough space to download it to your device and install it later.</p>

Updates, depending on the type they are, usually consume a large amount of battery. If we talk about the installation via OTAMost likely, the iPhone that forces you to have the device plugged in to avoid that during the process, you run out of battery which would be a problem that in the best case would force you to restore the device from scratch.

Make a copy of all the information we want to keep (not backup)

If you are determined to perform a clean installation but do you want to keep all the information that you have stored as documents, images, videos … we must extract all this information from the device and then copy it back to the device.

If you use a cloud storage service so that all your photos and videos are uploaded automatically, you can skip this step, since you only have to check with the respective service if it is really stored until the last photograph. The most popular services for iOS are currently iCloud and Google Photos. The latter offers us unlimited storage in the cloud as long as the photographs do not exceed 16 mpx or the videos are in 4k quality. If this is the case, Google Photos gives us the option to upload it in 4k quality, discounting the space it occupies from the 15 GB it offers us for free or converting it to 1080p, so that it does not occupy space of our quota.

If you do not use any of these services you will have to connect the iPhone to your computer, Windows or Mac and Manually copy the images to your computer, to later copy them once we have updated our terminal, as long as we are interested in having them always at hand, never better.

<p><strong>If you do this process through Windows</strong>, you just have to connect the iPhone to the computer and open the unit that represents the iPhone, search through the directories and make a copy. Instead, <strong>if you have a Mac</strong>, once you connect the iPhone, you can use the Photos application or Image Capture, select the photos and videos and drag them to the directory where you want to save them. Later you can also copy this content back to your iPhone, if you need to synchronize the contents of the folder through iTunes, just like if we did it with Windows.</p>

<p>The process to extract documents from our iPhone or iPad is simpler than the previous one, since in both operating systems, OS X and Windows, it is the same. Once we have connected our iPhone or iPad to the computer, click on the device icon and Applications. Next, all the applications that we have installed will be shown. We move to the bottom of the screen and see on the left <strong>a list of applications that are titled Shared files, applications that allow you to add files</strong> of any kind through iTunes.</p>
<p>To extract the content that we have stored in those applications we just have to click on it, and go to the right column, where we can <strong>find all files created with the application</strong> In addition to those we have previously copied if this is the case.</p>

Another option to extract the files from our iPhone or iPad is to select them and send them through AirDrop if we have a Mac or via email, so that later we can perform the steps explained above but on the contrary.

My friends, this is an impossible mission. You don't need to look for any other option. The only option to be able to discuss the progress of the games is that have synchronization through iCloud otherwise it is mission impossible. In recent years, most games have this type of synchronization so you should not suffer in this regard. Previously it was possible through jailbreak, but in the latest versions of iOS, the process has become very complicated and it is no longer so easy to do so.

Remember the password of our Apple ID

This step that seems absurd may be the only reason we cannot update our device. If we are users who do not usually install appearances and those that we install are free (where you no longer need to enter the password) we are likely to have forgotten our password. If this is the case, we can ask Apple for help through this website.

If you have any questions during the process, you can ask through the comments of this article and the iPhone News team will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Can I go back to iOS 9.3.5?

The latest version of iOS 9 launched by the company is numbered 9.3.5, currently the only one currently signed by the Cupertino-based company. If you see that your terminal with iOS 10 does not work as it should, and you prefer to wait for Apple to launch an update with improved performance, you only have a few days to do it, since Apple will stop signing the latest version of iOS 9 a few days after officially launching iOS 10. Once Apple stops signing that latest version of iOS 9, it will be impossible to downgrade and we will have no choice but to continue with iOS 10.
