How to Download and Install iOS 9 on Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

iOS 9, the latest and greatest version of Apple's operating system for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices, is now available for download. If you've been wondering whether your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is eligible for the update, and/ or how you can download iOS 9 on your Apple device, or how to take a backup of all data on your device before you install iOS 9, we have you covered.

Will my iOS device get iOS 9?
If your device is running iOS 8, then it is eligible for the iOS 9 upgrade. This year Apple hasn't discontinued OS upgrade support for any devices, but some features such as split-screen multitasking for iPad will only work on the newest devices. The following iOS devices will get the iOS 9 update. The iPad Pro, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPad mini 4 will ship with iOS 9 pre-installed, and hence don't appear in this list.

While the iOS update process is usually very smooth, it's still recommended that you take a backup to ensure that your data is safe. Here's how.

You can do this via iCloud or iTunes, but we recommend that you do it via iTunes, because it doesn't require an Internet connection. Here are the steps to take a backup of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:

1) Connect your iOS device to a PC or Mac.

2) Open iTunes.

3) On the top-left (to the left of My Music), click the icon that represents your iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod touch icon).

4) Under Backups, you will see the sub-head Manually Back Up and Restore.

5) Click Back Up Now to start backing up your iOS device.

Once essential data from the default apps has been backed up, iTunes will ask you if you want to transfer purchases. This backs up all apps installed on your phone, along with data downloaded within those apps. To do this, you will have to sign in with your Apple ID.

If you don't have access to a computer, then you can use iCloud Backup. Only 5GB is free and you'll have to pay Rs. 60 per month for additional storage on iCloud.

1) To start backing up, on your iOS device, go to Settings > iCloud > Backup.

2) Turn on the switch marked iCloud Backup. You'll get a warning telling you that your iPhone will not back up to your computer automatically. Tap Ok.

3) Once iCloud Backup is on, tap Back Up Now. This will start backing up your data to iCloud.

Wait for the backup to finish before proceeding further. You should see the Last Backup time (which should appear right below Back Up Now) correspond to something recent once the backup is completed.
