Updating your iPhone to iOS 6

Posted on September 25, 2012

As part of SIRKit’s ongoing effort to provide the best email service available, we would like to inform you about the latest iPhone operating system offered by Apple.

Apple’s iOS 6 offers many new features, including a new maps program with GPS-style spoken turn-by-turn navigation, improvements to Siri allowing for searching in Canada, new phone call features such as the ability to reply with a preset message instead of answering, a new Do Not Disturb option, as well as feature improvements and security updates to almost every other iPhone function.

In order to ensure you have the latest and most secure email and iPhone experience, SIRKit highly recommends updating to iOS 6 immediately. iOS 6 is only available on the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, and 5; if you do not see iOS 6 update your phone may not be an iOS 6 supported device.

***Please note: iOS 6 can only be installed while connected to a WiFi network. Also, as iOS 6 is a large update, be aware that the update can take between 20 -60 minutes, depending on your internet connection speed ***

 

To update to iOS 6:

From your iPhone home screen, tap on SETTINGS:

 

Tap on GENERAL:

 

Tap on SOFTWARE UPDATE:

 

You should now see the iOS 6 update screen, tap DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL:

 

You should now see the download progress screen:

Once the download has finished, you will see your iPhone reboot and finish installing the iOS 6 update. Once the update has finished, you may see your iPhone reboot again.

Once your iPhone has finished rebooting, you may be asked a few iOS 6 setup questions, such as signing in with your Apple ID, enabling Location Services, and setting up iCloud services. Once these final options have been selected, your iPhone will be the most up-to-date iPhone on the block!
