Update your iOS - it’s important!

Why is it important to keep iOS software up to date?

My phone and iPod work fine just the way it is, you think to yourself, and you put off the software update until another day.

Updating your iPhone or iPod when prompted is a good habit to adopt. Ignoring updates risks security breaches at worst or, at the very least, you could be missing out on new features.

Whenever Apple releases its latest iOS it’s time for iPhone and iPod users to connect to a Wi-Fi network and let it update for five minutes. The update includes new features, but there are other reasons why you should update your Apple device, and your apps, in a timely fashion.

Software updates are important, and we should start getting in the habit of following through on those notifications.

How do I update my iOS?

The most important reason to keep your phone and iPod up to date is security. There are flaws with any software system — and it’s just a matter of time before someone discovers them.

CitNOW has dropped support for iOS 8 as of 12th September. Apple no longer support iOS 8 and later versions of the software include security updates and new features that you could be missing out on if you don’t update your device.
