iOS 9 update to roll out in India tonight; here’s how to download
Apple employees are setting up their servers and iOS 9 update will roll out in India tonight. The update will be available as a free upgrade on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch starting 10.30 p.m. IST. Here, we are providing a detailed tutorial on how to download Apple iOS 9 in an easy way.
The company already announced that iOS 9 will be compatible with iPhone 4s and later, iPad 2 and later and iPod touch fifth-generation and later. The update will be available in all regions and in all languages across the globe in which iOS is currently available but some features may vary, depending on region and language.
As an upgrade over last year released iOS 8, iOS 9 brings an improved Siri integration and delivers more relevant search results from categories like sports scores and schedules, simple math calculations, weather conditions and stock prices. Apple has not made much changes on the interface front but there are some new multitasking features especially designed for iPad to deliver an all-new computing experience.
iOS 9 also comes preloaded with a redesigned Notes app and an updated Maps. In addition, there is the newly released News app to provide curated news stories for some mainstream media portals.
For countries where Apple Pay is supported, though it is yet to be released in India, there is new Discover feature and an all-new Wallet app to improve shoppers’ experience. The update also comes with Metal to deliver faster and smoother performance on existing iOS devices.
You can check iOS 9 availability on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch anytime after 10.30 p.m. in India. Make sure that your device has enough space before starting the download process as the update requires nearly 1.3GB free space for its download. Also, we recommend you to take a backup of your personal data either on iCloud or on your PC or Mac through iTunes.
Once you’ve done with all the necessary formalities, you just need to go to Settings > General > Software Update. You can either use an active Wi-Fi or 4G or 3G data connection on your iOS device to download the update package. As the servers would be quite busy in the initial stage, you may find some difficulties in downloading the update package. But the update process would become smoother in a few hours after its release.
