Apple is launching its iOS 7 software on Wednesday, according to Mashable, and if you’re like me, you don’t want any of your contacts and pictures to be deleted in the process.
Before you download the new software — which will be pushed to iOS users sometime during the day, Mashable recommends doing a few simple things ahead of time in case there are bugs.
To download iOS 7 worry-free, the first step is to back up your data via iCloud. Apple actually backs up the most important data (if using iOS 5 or later) automatically, but the feature has to be enabled. To set this up, visit Settings > iCloud > Backup & Storage. This will back up your iPhone on a daily basis as long as the device’s screen is locked, on a Wi-Fi network and connected to power.
