How to Prepare Your iPhone for the iOS 15 Update in 7 Easy Steps

With iOS 15, you'll have access to some of the exciting new features for your iPhone, such as offline Siri, redesigned notifications, a new Safari interface, text recognition in images, and much more. You can download it over the air using Wi-Fi, just like you did with previous iOS updates.

But first and foremost, you should be aware of how to properly prepare your iPhone for the new iOS 15 update in order to avoid any last-minute issues.

1. Determine whether or not your iPhone is compatible

iOS 15 is compatible with iPhone 6s and newer models of the device. This means that any iPhone launched in 2015 or later will be compatible with iOS 15. There are a few features, however, that are only available on the most recent models of the device. If you have an older device, you should be aware of these.

2. Check to See That You Have Enough Available Space

You'll need plenty of free space on your device to download, prepare, and install a major iOS update. The exact size of the update file varies depending on the model of your iPhone. However, the majority of major iOS updates are around 5GB in size.

To do so, go to the following location: Settings > General > iPhone Storage before you begin downloading iOS 15. You can see how much free space you have in this section. If you do not have at least 6-7GB of free space on your iPhone, learn how to free up space on your iPhone.

3. Create an iCloud backup of your iPhone

Backing up your iPhone to iCloud is essential before upgrading to iOS 15 on your device. Backing up your data will ensure that your important information is protected and can be restored in the event of a disaster.

It will take place automatically when your device is charging, locked, and connected to Wi-Fi if you have enabled iCloud Backup on your device. However, you can also force it to perform a manual backup whenever you want.

Here's how to find out when your last iCloud backup occurred and how to force it to back up your iPhone right away:

  1. Open iPhone Settings and select your name from the drop-down menu at the top.
  2. Select iCloud > iCloud Backup from the menu bar.
  3. You'll find the date and time of the most recent successful backup here. If the backup is more than a few days old, select Back Up Now and wait for the process to complete.

 If you do not have enough space on your phone to store the backup, learn how to free up iCloud storage space or back up your iPhone locally to your computer instead.

4. Make sure you have your Apple ID and password ready

After the iOS 15 update is complete, you may be prompted to enter your Apple ID password again in order to access services such as iCloud, the App Store, the iTunes Store, and other similar sites and applications. Consequently, to avoid any complications, make sure you know your Apple ID login credentials before you begin.

5. Observe the Stock Wallpapers and take note of them

When Apple releases a new major iOS update, it is well-known (and frequently criticized by fans) for removing old wallpapers from the system. If there are any stock wallpapers in iOS 14 that you like, make a note of them right away.

Open Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper from the drop-down menu. Now, select Stills from the menu bar and take screenshots of the wallpapers displayed here. It is possible that Apple will remove some of them in iOS 15, in which case you can use reverse image search to locate and download the wallpaper from the internet.

6. Ensure that you have a dependable network to update your software

To update your iPhone to iOS 15, you will need to download approximately 6-7GB of data over Wi-Fi. 12. If you have a limited data plan, check the website or app of your internet service provider to make sure you have enough data allowance left. Pre-checking this will help to ensure that your update does not become stuck after only a portion of it has been downloaded.

If you don't have a fast and reliable Wi-Fi network, make sure you're connected to one so that the update can be completed smoothly.

7. Learn About Apple System Status Page

When a major iOS update, such as iOS 15, is released, a large number of enthusiasts attempt to download it at the same time. In rare instances, the servers may become overloaded, resulting in updates that take an excessive amount of time to complete.

In these situations, check the Apple System Status page first before looking for alternative solutions.
