Tricks for Downloading the Apple iOS 7 Update with Ease

Apple is launching its iOS 7 software on Wednesday, according to Mashableiphone in hand 150x150 Tricks for Downloading the Apple iOS 7 Update with Ease , 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.
