Once the i Tunes update has downloaded, it will begin installing itself automatically.
Note: Apple's updater is likely to suggest additional software that you can download (such as the Safari browser); none of this is necessary.
You can download it if you like, but you don't need it to update i Tunes.
Let this run; do not disconnect your i Phone while it is doing so.
When the update process is complete, i Tunes may not give you any notification.
Once you restart your computer (if you had to restart it), open i Tunes again.
You'll have to review and accept the i Tunes Software License Agreement before the new version will launch.
Did you know that Apple often updates i OS, adding new features and cool new tools?
To make sure that your i Phone is running the latest version of i OS, you'll need to connect it to your computer and download the update using i Tunes.
(This is under the "STORE" heading in the left hand menu in i Tunes.) The rotating arrows show you that the download is in progress, and the number tells you how many items are being downloaded.
Once the software has been downloaded, you'll see a message that i Tunes is extracting the new update and another says "Preparing i Phone for software update." You'll also see a notification that i Tunes is verifying the software update with Apple, and you may see drivers automatically installing.
But don't worry: the process is pretty painless.
