iOS 7 update problems: What can occur and how to resolve?

There are a number of problems which could occur when updating the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to iOS 7. First, and foremost, make sure back up all iOS data on your iPhone via iTunes or iCloud before proceeding with updating. This will save you a lot of trouble should the iOS 7 update fail.

When upgrading, make sure to update iOS via using OTA (over-the-air) update rather than using iTunes. OTA update brings increased reliability of the iOS upgrade process. If you choose to upgrade via iTunes, you might encounter error messages during or after the update.

Here’s a list with the most common problems during iOS 7 update:

  • iTunes returns an error message during iOS 7 update

iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s expect hands-on

UPDATE: In the meantime, I just unboxed both the iPhone 5s and iPad Air. Check out the review here: iPhone 5s and iPad Air hands-on.

Earlier this week Apple announced the arrival of two new phones: iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s. The news confirms previous rumors that there will not be one but two iPhones announced once of which, the iPhone 5c brightly colored and relatively cheaper. The iPhone 5s, on the other hand is a jewel of advanced mobile technology that I personally can’t wait to put my hands on.

Here is a fun look at how Apple's iPhone 5s / 5c event was all about :)

Apple fans in nine countries around the world, including USA, UK and Australia, can start pre-ordering the iPhone 5s as early as tomorrow, September 13th. I will try an pre-order too the same day and once I receive the iPhone will do an in-depth hands-on review.

In the meantime, if you would like to know more about iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5s specifications and features, have a look at the below chart or view the video from Apple’s September 2013 Special Event.
