You can easily upgrade your iPhone to the latest version of the software by following a few simple steps.

Lucky enough if you own any of the above devices but hard luck if you are an iPhone 3G or iPhone 4/4s user. Unfortunately, there is no upgrade available for these devices.
So now let’s get started and learn how to update iOS 10 on your iPhone.
Step 1: Always Create a Backup
Before upgrading to any latest version of software you should always create a backup of our device so that you can easily restore all our data quickly. You can easily create a backup of your device on iCloud via a secure Wi-Fi connection. If you can’t, then another resort is by creating a backup of your device on your computer via iTunes. Don’t want to try either of these? Then you can try the Right Backup anywhere application which can minimize your efforts by taking backup automatically according to your preset frequency. You can download the application from the app store free of cost.

Once you are done with creating a backup of your device, make sure that you arrange for plenty of storage space on your apple device. Check if you have enough storage space available on your iPhone as the new iOS10 is not a light weight cupcake! It is fairly estimated that at least 1.5GB of storage space will be temporarily required for the completion of the iOS 10 update. You can simply manage your storage space by tapping Setting>General>Usage
Step 3: You are now Ready to Go!
As soon as Apple releases the iOS 10 you can easily grab it via iTunes or your existing iPhone itself. Both the ways are explained in detail below:
