Free up your space

Even if you are not going to upgrade to a newer version of software, we recommend going through all your old photos and videos or maybe on the apps you never use and consider deleting them.

When upgrading, it`s safer to have a cleaner device that you can immediately restore if something went wrong.

And don`t forget that a clean restore is always welcomed if you were previously jailbroken!

Backup your device

You don`t really want to update to a new software version before making a backup!

Even for Apple, backups are really important and if you were lucky enough, then you never lost “everything” from your device. I just remember losing contacts, but with the iCloud backup – you should be safe.

Keep your photos and videos safe!

Prepare for a six digit passcode

iOS 9 comes with a new security step which we are all going to hate: six digit passcode!
