Two Ways To Download And Install iOS 10
It's advisable to perform a backup to either I cloud or your computer before you go ahead with the upgrade incase anything goes wrong.
Through OTA update: This is the most common and by far the easiest way to update your i device.
Normally you should have receive a pop up message by now. If you have then click on details but if you haven't,
=> Go to Settings >> General and click on the software update button.
=> Click on download and follow the on-screen instructions.
2. Manual Upgrade Through iTunes: This is also another method of upgrading your i device to iOS 10. This method requires a PC though and also considering the number of complaints about device getting bricked while trying to perform OTA upgrade, I will recommend this method.
=> Connect your device to your computer.
=> Launch iTunes and search for your device.
=> You should receive a prompt asking you to upgrade but in case you don't, just click the "Check for update" button.
=> Click on "download and update" button and your download should start almost immediately.
Those who ordered for the iPhone 7 have nothing to worry about as it will come with ios10 straight out of the box.
