It never hurts to make a backup of your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch just in case, before installing the update for iOS. In addition, if you make an encrypted backup via iTunes, private information, such as passwords, will also be saved in it along with all the files.
You can make a backup in iTunes or iCloud.
If you jailbreak your iOS device and really do not want to part with all your tweaks, it is recommended not to update and wait until Pangu or TaiG crack iOS 9.2.
Installing iOS 9.2 over the air (OTA)
Before downloading the update, connect the device to a power source so that the battery does not accidentally drain during the update. The download and installation process may take different times, from several minutes to an hour, depending on the load on Apple servers and your Internet connection. Of course, it is better to update via Wi-Fi so as not to waste the traffic of mobile Internet.
Once you are connected to the power and wireless network, open Settings and go to The main > Software Updates. iOS will automatically check for updates and tell you that an update to 9.2 is available.
Those who have jailbreak installed should be updated via iTunes, as the OTA update with jailbreak can lead to problems.
Click the Download button. Wait for the download to finish and then click Install. Downloading will take some time, so if you are tired of waiting, get distracted by something else. Your device will beep when the download is complete. Go back to Software Updates and proceed with installing the downloaded update by clicking the appropriate button.
Install iOS 9.2 via iTunes
If you were unable to download the update by air, try downloading the update using the official links listed below and installing it manually via iTunes. Also, this installation method may be necessary in the case when the free disk space on the device is not enough for OTA update.
Before you begin, make sure that you are using the latest version of iTunes. You can update iTunes in the program settings.
After that, follow the instructions:
Step 1: Connect the device to the computer via a USB cable. Launch iTunes and wait for the program to recognize the device.
Step 2: Click on the device button located to the left of the iTunes Store button in the upper right part of the program.
Step 3: Click on “Check for Updates”. No additional keys are required to clamp. iTunes will automatically start downloading and installing the update, if available.
Step 4: A message appears stating that a new update is available. Click on “Update”.
Step 5: Skip this step if the update started in steps 3 or 4.
Download the firmware from the official links for different devices (Files weigh about 2 GB depending on the device).
If you download the firmware via Safari, make sure that the automatic unzip option is disabled, or download the archive via Chrome or Firefox.
The model number of your device can be found on its back panel. The number is needed in order to select the correct download link.
Once the download is complete, hold down the Option (Mac) or Shift (Windows) key and click on “Check for Updates”. Do not click on the “Restore iPhone” button, it is very easy to accidentally get into it.
Step 6: A message appears stating that iTunes is starting to upgrade your iPhone / iPad / iPod touch to iOS 9.2. Click “Update.”
Step 7: The next window will show release information. Click Next. Then read (or not read) the agreement and accept it.
Step 8: After all the preparatory operations, the installation of the update will begin. Do not disconnect the device from the computer until the installation is complete. It will take a few minutes. Your device will be updated to iOS 9.2 and will reboot once or twice. After installation is complete, you will see a welcome screen. Follow the instructions on the screen to start using your device again.
