Download Apple iOS 11
The most convenient way to download and update your device to iOS 11 is to head to the Settings, open General and move on to the Software Update. Remember that this update is quite huge and will take a long time to download, therefore you need to make sure you’re connected to a good Wi-Fi connection as opposed to your cellular network.
The latest version can also be updated by connecting your device to your computer and then getting the new version automatically from the iTunes.
Some of the precautions you need to adopt before downloading the new version include getting your device adequately charged before you begin the updating. The download will not start unless your phone has sufficient battery. A 2G of space will also be required on your device in order to update the new iOS 11. However, if you’re having storage space issues, then try deleting some unnecessary items from your device to free up some space. Moreover, always remember to create a backup of your data in the iCloud as a security.
Last but not the least, there is no need to fret if you do not see the update immediately on your device. Sometimes, the influx of Apple users is extreme, causing the Apple’s servers to overload. Therefore, we would recommend you to try it again later sometime. You will find the update on your device.
