Five things necessary to do before installing iOS 8
Come September 17 and we will have the iOS 8 available for our devices, the correct way, to add. With the official release date in sight, it is just fitting to discuss the things iPad and iPhone owners must do before installing Apple’s new mobile operating system to the devices.
When launched officially, the iOS 8 update will be available for iPhone 4s and upwards. It will also be for iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina Display, iPad Mini, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPod touch fifth-generation.
Do not install blindly
We request you to read about iOS 8 information in detail and understand all the ins and outs well before going for the install. Over the years people have complained about the changes the updates deliver. There is no compulsion that you have to install right away. Wait learn and then install.
Clean up your device
This chance of updating your device to a new software can be an opportunity for you to clean up your device of all the unnecessary applications and files that you have clogged your device’s memory with.
Backup the data
Anything can go wrong while updating to a new software. Once you have cleaned your device and have arrived at data that you will necessarily need, backup this data to be safe.
Have the Apple ID handy
When you will first sign into iOS 8 you will need you Apple ID. If you own an Apple device you will have your unique ID. Have the ID ready with username and password when installing iOS 8.
Have your device fully charged
You want to get all the little things right when installing the iOS 8. One thing that people often do wrong when installing new software is they don’t have their devices charged. You will need at least 50 percent battery (if not plugged in) while installing iOS 8.
