Updating ipod software without itunes
By Tony Bove You should always keep your i Pod updated with new versions of the software that controls the device — which is i OS for the i Pod touch, or the i Pod system software for an i Pod classic, i Pod nano, and i Pod shuffle.New versions often include bug fixes as well as new features.The fastest way to find out if the version of i OS on your i Pod touch is the most recent version, choose Settings→General→Software Update.If a new version of the software is available, you see the Download and Install button.While the i OS version can be updated easily, the apps on your i Phone also needed to be updated frequently. i OS 6 offers limited support for the i Phone 3GS/4. Whichever i OS you want to upgrade to, first of all, I suggest that you should make a backup before updating i Phone. Sign in the Apple ID and begin the download process. After downloadng, you can sync your i Phone to get ala the updated apps to your i Phone.Again, this can be done either by using a Wi-Fi network or by connecting to i Tunes from your computer. i OS 6: supported devices i OS 6 is only supported on i Phone 4S or newer. i OS 7 supported devices i OS 7 is only supported on i Phone 4 or newer. A backup prevents you from losing any data in case something goes wonky down the line. Tips and Tricks Manually checking for updates by going to the i Tunes App Store is annoying.All you need to do is select which updates to download and then click the Install button to download them.
The Summary page appears to the right of the source pane, and the software version appears next to Software Version at the top of the page.
Therefore, it is recommended that it is done via Wi-Fi.
Currently, the latest i OS update available is i OS 11.0.
Next to the word Version is information that describes the software version installed.
To see which version of the i Pod system software is installed on an i Pod nano or i Pod classic, choose Settings→General→About from the i Pod nano Home screen or Settings→About from the i Pod classic main menu.
