How to update:

To update your device to iOS 7, open the Settings app, tap the General button then select Software Update. You should see iOS 7 listen as an update from there.


Please note the installation may take a while to complete — up to 30 minutes on some devices — and make sure to backup your device via iTunes or iCloud beforehand. Although the installation process will leave all your apps, messages, emails and other content intact, there’s always a small chance an installation issue may arise.
