So after reading this post on reddit this morning about upgrading to iOS 7 I thought I would share my experience in upgrading here.
- Step 1: Download the appropriate update from iMZDL depending on your hardware. I used the torrent version and it downloaded very quickly.
- Step 2: Connect your iPhone/iPad and launch iTunes.
- Step 3: Option-Click on the Update button.
- Step 4: Select the ipsw file you just downloaded and wait.
The upgrade took a few minutes to verify since I forgot I had a download running and it was slowing my internet connection down. After that the entire process took about 7 minutes from when my phone became unusable till the restart was done. All in all the process was super simple.
Just in case you need it… downgrade instructions are here.
