Before You Update to iOS 16
Before you update to iOS 16, there are a few things you should do first to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
First, check to see if your device is compatible with iOS 16. You can find a list of compatible devices on Apple’s website. If your device isn’t compatible, you won’t be able to update to iOS 16.
Second, make sure you have enough free storage space available on your device. iOS 16 requires at least 4.5GB of free storage space in order to install properly. If you don’t have enough space, you won’t be able to update.
Finally, back up your device before updating. This will protect your data in case something goes wrong during the update process. To back up your device, open Settings and select “iCloud”. Then, tap “Back Up Now” to back up your data to iCloud.
