As we all know, the iOS 7 update went live early this morning. While many have clamored to download and install the latest update, not all compatible devices will be getting all the new features. Before you go ahead and download the update, do take note of the following: 

  • Backup your data before proceeding with the update.
  • You can update your iOS device over the air or via iTunes. If you do it via iTunes, you need to update iTunes to the latest version.
  • At least 3GB of free space is needed on the iOS device to carry out the installation process.

The iOS 7 update is available for download on the iPod touch (5th gen), iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, and the iPad mini. Here's a quick look at what new features each iOS device will be getting:
