But with a major update it’s even more important in case something goes wrong.

Therefore, make sure that all your valuable photos, videos and other files are backed up with iCloud or another storage service before you go.

Next, you’ll need to have some storage space available to download the update.

Typically, iOS updates can be up to 10GB in size.

So if you find yourself running out of storage space, consider deleting any apps or old files you no longer use.

Turn on

To download iOS 17 you need at least 50 percent battery.

And for installation you need at least 20 percent.

So be careful – it’s probably best to keep the device plugged in throughout the installation.

In addition, WiFi is faster.
