From DropBox to Hipchat: The 5 biggest cloud hacks in recent history

iOS 10 is set to be released on Sept.13 with the biggest news that it will not support all handsets.  With the imminent release of the updated operating system, some prerequisites have to be considered before getting the update. Likewise, it is important to delete and update phone apps, backup all data, transfer photos to Cloud, and take note of all passwords before getting the update.

Here is a list of phones that are compatible with the iOS 10 update:

  • iPad mini 2

  • iPad mini 3

  • iPad mini 4

  • iPod touch 6

  • iPad 4th-gen

  • iPad Air

  • iPad Air 2

  • iPad Pro

  • iPhone 5

  • iPhone 5c

  • iPhone 5s

  • iPhone SE

  • iPhone 6/6 Plus

  • iPhone 6s/6s Plus

  • iPhone 7/7 Plus

iOS 10 update necessitates setting up a backup for all data to iCloud. Another option in backing up data is to connect the iPhone or iPad to a PC and backup through iTunes. Removing unnecessary data will also improve the speed of your device for faster iOS 10 download, CNET reported. To update data, find the App Store app, tap on it and then click on Update at the bottom-right of the screen.

iOS 10 will be able to update and remove data along the way but those who come prepared will have the advantage of a faster download. Finally, it is important to remember the iCloud password used to backup data. If the iTunes backup is encrypted, it is important to take note of that password as well, Latin Post reported.

Previously, it has been established that the iOS 10 GM software is originally built right after its iPhone 7 keynote, while its betas are suggested to be some of the most stable betas from Apple.

iOS 10 download for public launch is expected to begin on Tuesday, Sept. 13. The said release date is three days earlier than the much anticipated launch of Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Meanwhile, watch the video on iOS 10 Beta 8 features & changes review here:
