Updating Your iOS Device Without iTunes

As clueless I was, I didn’t know that iOS 5 came out with this new feature, which was the ability to update your iPhone’s/iPad’s iOS version via Wifi without the need to plug-in to iTunes. It’s very easy to do it, just follow the following steps.

  1. Go to your iPhone’s “Settings” option
  2. Select “General
  3.  Then select “Software Update
  4. The phone will search the servers for the latest patch

Select “download and install”

Make sure that your phone is also plugged into a power source

Wait for the download to complete and voila, your iOS device is now updated.
