iOS Tip 155 - Prepare for iOS 10

iOS 10 releases Tuesday September 13th. Are your ready?

BEFORE you download and install the update: BACKUP YOUR DATA and then do a “spring” cleaning. Wait a couple of days after the release to ensure there aren’t any issues with the new iOS.

Before you do anything major such as upgrading your device you need to make sure that you have a backup just in case things don't go smoothly. You can either back up your data to iCloud, or if you don't have enough space you can take the old-school road and connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer and do the backup through iTunes.

Details on how to carry out a backup can be found here.

Chances are good that your iPhone or iPad has accumulated a lot of junk over the months and years, so what better time to get rid of it than now. While iOS 10 doesn't need as much free space to install as earlier releases, getting rid of apps that you no longer use -- or perhaps have never used -- makes good sense.
