Find out how to update your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the latest version of iOS or iPadOS.

You can update your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the latest version of iOS or iPadOS wirelessly.

Update your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch wirelessly

  1. Plug your device into a power source and connect to the internet with Wi-Fi (If it has not been already)
  2. Go to Settings > General, then tap Software Update.
  3. If you see two software update options available, choose the one you want to install.
    The Settings app on iPhone showing options to update to iOS 14.8 or iOS 15.
  4. Tap Install Now. If you see Download and Install instead, tap it to download the update, enter your passcode, then tap Install Now. If you don't know your passcode, find out what to do.


You may see that your device is up to date and that there's an upgrade available. For example, even if your device is up to date with the latest version of iOS 14, there may be an option to upgrade to iOS 15. You may want to upgrade iOS when you pair an accessory with iPhone.

If you need more space when updating wirelessly

If a message asks to remove apps temporarily because the software needs more space for the update, tap Continue to allow apps to be removed. After the installation process has finished, those apps will be reinstalled automatically. If you tap Cancel instead, you can delete content manually from your device to add more space.

Customise automatic updates

Your device can update automatically overnight while it's charging.

  1. Go to Settings > General > Software Update.
  2. Tap Automatic Updates, then turn on Download iOS Updates.
  3. Turn on Install iOS Updates. Your device will automatically be updated to the latest version of iOS or iPadOS. Some updates may need to be installed manually.
    The Automatic Updates page in Settings on iPhone showing options to download and install iOS updates automatically.

Upgrading to the latest version of iOS or iPadOS software provides the latest features, security updates and bug fixes. Not all features are available on all devices or in all countries and regions. Battery and system performance may be influenced by many factors, including network conditions and individual use; actual results may vary.
