It´s been almost an hour since Apple released the official iOS 9 software for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. What if you previously installed the pre-release public beta on your device and want to switch to the new official version?
I´m afraid to tell you that you will have to restore your Apple product to make room for the newest, and formal, update. But this is no “click-restore-on-iTunes” task.
To get the latest software, you will have to put your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch into DFU mode. To do that, follow this instructions:
- I recommend you backup your iOS device, either by using iCloud or iTunes
- Connect your device to your computing using the dedicated USB cable
- Turn off your device
- Hold the Power button for three seconds until your device shuts off
- Keep both the Home and Power buttons pressed for 10 seconds
- Release the Power button, and at the same time keep holding the Home button
- After 15 seconds, iTunes will show you an alert telling you that the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch is in recovery mode.
All you have to do is tap the Restore button and wait until iTunes downloads and installs the software on your device. The new iOS 9 for iPad Air 2 weighs 1.9 GB, and this could vary depending on your device. Are you going to install iOS 9 on your Apple gadget?
