Apple releases updates for the iPhone throughout the year, with a major update every fall. The major update is timed with the release of that year’s iPhone range.

This begs the question: How do you update your iPhone and what do those updates do?

The smaller updates bring any feature updates that missed the major update, or patch vulnerabilities and other bugs. While major ones can completely change your iOS from an older version to the latest version.

You can manually update iOS on your iPhone or let the iPhone do it automatically. The best way to keep your iPhone secure from attack is to keep it updated, so we’ll show you how.
