What to do before upgrading to iOS9!

iOS9 comes out today and brings many new features. The smart thing to do is make a BACKUP before Updating/Restoring your iPhone or iPad. By connecting your device to your computer, you can select "Back Up Now" in iTunes. For iCloud users, simply go to Settings > iCloud > Backups and chose Backup Now.

Performing the update via iTunes should be the fastest way to get iOS9 on your device(s). This really is the best way, especially for folks who don't have a lot of open space on their iPhone or iPad. If your device is having ANY weird issues currently, an Update will not solve them. Make a Backup and then Restore via iTunes. This will wipe the troublesome software off the device and let you start over clean. You can then restore your data back and life should be good again.

Remember... Updates only cause problems on devices that already have software issues.

Updated my iPhone this evening. Like the look and feel and some of the new features.
Another advantage to doing a backup directly on iTunes is that by selecting Encrypted backup, all account settings, keychains, passwords etc are also backed up, which I don't believe is the case with iCloud or unencrypted backup.

There are two kinds of computer users: those who have lost data and those who are about to — backup your Mac!

Terry, loved your video. One thing you didn't mention was that you need to click on show iCloud Drive in settings to have it show up. I couldn't figure out why I didn't have it on my iOS device after the update until I did some research. Tons of great info, everyone needs to watch this if they are running iOS9.

I was prompted during the update with the option to install iCloud Drive. I was wondering if there was a setting. Thanks!
