Iphone 6 update 9 what are the tips

Before you begin the installation process for iOS 9 on your iPhone 6, there are some things you will want to do in order to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. By taking the time to prepare, you can make sure that your experience is hassle-free and give yourself the best chance of success.

In this section, we will cover what you should do to get ready for the installation process:

Backup your data

Before attempting to install iOS 9, it is important to first ensure that your data is properly backed up. When you backup your data, it creates a copy of all the files on your iPhone 6, so in the event that something goes wrong during the update process, all of your content will be safe and secure.

To backup your device, first make sure you have updated to the latest version iTunes on your desktop or laptop computer. You can check for updates when you open iTunes by selecting “Help” in the application menu bar followed by “Check for Updates“. This will help ensure that you are using the most current version when creating a backup.

Once you have updated iTunes, connect your iPhone 6 to your computer with a compatible USB cable and launch iTunes if it doesn’t open automatically. Once connected, select the device from under Devices on the left side panel in iTunes and select “Back Up Now” from under “Backups“. This will create a copy of all content stored on the device including photos, contacts and music. You may also wish to enable iCloud backup in settings which will allow iCloud to store copies of certain content such as photos and documents so that they can be easily accessed from any other Apple device later.

Make sure your device is compatible

Ahead of installing iOS 9, it’s important to make sure that your device is actually compatible with the new version. To ensure this, check the instructions at the Apple website for hardware requirements and following instructions. Generally, any device released after September 1st 2013 will be able to support iOS 9 – including several later iPod Touch models, all iPad mini models, all iPad Air models, and the fourth and fifth-generation iPads.

Once you have checked this is in order, move on to downloading and installing the software.

Download and Install iOS 9

Installing the iOS 9 software update on an iPhone 6 is an exciting process. Not only will the new software update bring you the latest features and improvements, but it can also give your device a boost in performance and speed.

In the following section, we’ll take a look at the tips and tricks you need to know to successfully download and install the iOS 9 update on your iPhone 6:

Connect to a Wi-Fi network

Before starting the installation process, you will need to make sure your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network. After connecting to a wireless network, you can start the iOS 9 download and install process.

To activate your device’s Airplane mode before beginning installation:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Tap on Airplane Mode
  3. Slide the switch from left (off) to right (on)
  4. This will temporarily turn off your device’s cellular connection and Wi-Fi capability, allowing for a more stable connection while downloading and installing iOS 9.
  5. Once the download is complete, simply repeat these steps and tap the switch from right (on) to left (off). Your device can now resume normal operation with both cellular connection and Wi-Fi enabled.

Go to Settings > General > Software Update

The first step to install iOS 9 on your iPhone 6 is to open the Settings app by tapping the icon on your home screen. From here, scroll down and tap on General. On the menu for General settings, select Software Update.

This will check for any available updates for your phone. If ‘Software Update’ says ‘iOS 9 is Available’ then you are ready to begin downloading iOS 9 onto your device. Tap Download and Install and wait while iOS 9 is downloaded onto your device.

Once the download has finished, your iPhone will inform you that it needs to restart in order to complete installation of iOS 9. Tap Install Now an confirm by tapping on Agree again when prompted.

Your device will now take about five minutes to finish installing iOS 9 and will then reboot itself with iOS 9 installed and ready to use!

For best performance, make sure you keep up with any further software updates from Apple as they will often enhance stability or patch up small bugs discovered in past versions of their software operating system.

Tap Download and Install

Once the download process is complete, you will be ready to install iOS 9. Before starting the installation, make sure your device is connected to a power source and has a good connection to Wi-Fi or mobile data. To begin, tap on ‘Download and Install’.

A pop-up will appear asking you if you want to back up your device before proceeding with the installation – this is not necessary but recommended for personal items like photos, music and videos.

Once you tap ‘Agree’, iOS 9 will begin downloading onto your iPhone 6. Depending on network speed this may take some time so sit back and relax until the progress bar reads 100%. You can check the progress of the installation by tapping on ‘Settings > General > Software Update’ or by simply glancing at the home screen where an indicator should be present until the download is finished.


When it comes to updating your iPhone 6 to the latest version of iOS (iOS 9), it’s important to be cautious and make sure you have all the necessary troubleshooting measures in place. This article will discuss the step-by-step instructions for successfully updating your iPhone 6, as well as some helpful tips to keep in mind when troubleshooting any problems that may arise. Read on to learn more.

If you get an error message, try rebooting your device

Navigating through the steps to update your iPhone 6 can be daunting, especially if any errors appear midway through the installation. If an error message appears on screen, try rebooting your device before continuing with the setup. Hold down the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time until the Apple logo appears onscreen.

Once you have restarted your device, retry running through each of the steps in your iOS 9 system upgrade.

If an error still appears after rebooting, you may need to reset your settings back to factory standard and try upgrading again. To achieve this, go to settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. This will not delete any of your personal information or data but will set all reset settings back to factory default for a fresh start. Make sure that you remember all of your password information before continuing with this process as it may prompt for passwords during setup afterwards. Once complete, retry installing iOS 9 on the device from scratch again and, if successful, re-register any passwords and other settings as required afterwards.

If the update won’t install, try resetting your network settings

If the update still won’t install, there may be an issue with your network settings. Before attempting to reset your iPhone, make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes installed, as well as the latest version of iOS.

To reset your network settings on your iPhone 6:

  1. Open Settings and tap “General“.
  2. Scroll down and select “Reset“.
  3. Tap “Reset Network Settings“.
  4. Enter your passcode if prompted and confirm that you want to reset your network settings.
  5. Your device will turn off and then back on after a few moments, indicating that your network settings have been successfully reset to their original state; no data or media should be affected in the process.
  6. Try downloading the iOS 9 update again once this has been completed; if it fails a second time, try restoring from a previous backup or connecting to iTunes for further assistance from Apple Support staff.


Once you have successfully installed iOS 9 on your iPhone 6, there are a few steps you will need to take in order to ensure that your device is fully functional. This post will go over some of the tips you should keep in mind for post-installation of iOS 9 on your iPhone 6.

Set up your device

Once iOS 9 is installed on your device, the following steps must be performed to set up it:

  1. Make sure your device has enough storage for the update by going to Settings > General > About and tap Available to review available storage.
  2. If necessary, delete unwanted files or transfer them to iCloud or iTunes as a backup before installing iOS 9.
  3. Back up your device either by using iCloud or iTunes prior to beginning the installation process.
  4. Connect your iPhone 6 to a power source and connect it to Wi-Fi in order for the update process not to be interrupted due to draining battery loss or disconnection of internet connection during download installation of iOS 9 on your iPhone 6.
  5. Read and agree with terms and conditions presented at startup after iOS 9 is installed on your device, then start exploring the features of iOS 9!

Check for any app updates

After you have successfully installed iOS 9, the next step is to make sure that all of your apps are up-to-date. Doing this will ensure maximum compatibility and reliability of your device.

To check for app updates, launch the App Store app on your iPhone and navigate to the “Updates” tab at the bottom of your screen. Here you can find any available updates for apps currently installed on your device. Tap “Update All” or select individual apps if desired, then confirm by clicking “Download” when prompted.

After downloading any pending updates, restart your iPhone 6 before using it normally again.

Check for any iOS 9-specific features

After you’ve installed iOS 9 on your phone, it’s important to take a look at all of the new features specific to this version of iOS. Though some of the same features may have existed in previous versions, many of the updates in iOS 9 can offer enhanced options and easier access to your device’s apps and programs. It is important to familiarize yourself with these changes so that you can make use of them properly.

One such feature is called Proactive Suggestions. When enabled, this feature will use locally stored information from your phone and iCloud account to provide more personalized suggestions as you use your device. This ranges from contacts that you might want to call, frequently visited websites in Safari, or even nearby places for lunch stored within Maps. Additionally, there are several app-specific improvements such as public transportation directions for Maps, enhanced multitasking abilities with Slide Over and Split View in supported iPads, an improved Notes app which allows users to include photos and sketches, among other helpful changes.

Also be sure to check out the battery section found within Settings > Battery – this includes a Low Power Mode option which will save power when needed while conserving performance levels. It’s a great way to get more out of each charge!
