10 Things to Do Before Installing iOS 10.3.2

The iOS 10.3.2 update is out of beta and today we want to walk you through some steps to take before installing Apple’s latest iOS 10 update on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

While you might be tempted to download the iOS 10.3.2 update right now, you’ll benefit from doing some prep work ahead of your installation.

iOS 10.3.2 delivers important bug fixes and security patches but it could also bring problems to your iPhone or iPad. A little prep prior to the installation process will go a long way toward preventing bugs, performance issues, and headaches.

The iOS 10.3.2 update’s change log is short but the current version of iOS 10 is actually a pretty big update. The collection of bug fixes and security patches checks in at 176MB for the iPhone 7. This is quite large for a maintenance release. The iOS 10.3.2 update is also pretty sizable for popular devices like the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 6.

If you’re coming to iOS 10.3.2 from something older than iOS 10.3.1, say iOS 10.2.1, your download will be even larger thanks to the features and fixes from iOS 10.3 and any other iOS updates you skipped along the way.

If you’re planning to install iOS 10.3.2 on your device, we want to help get you started. We’ve put together a game plan for you. This pre-installation guide will walk you through the steps we typically take before we install an iOS update on our iPhones and iPads.

Get Familiar with iOS 10.3.2 & Other Updates

Maybe the first thing you'll want to do is get familiar with the iOS 10.3.2 update and its changes. This is particularly important if you skipped iOS 10.3, iOS 10.3.1 or any other iOS 10 upgrades. If you skipped an update, its features and fixes will be baked into your device's iOS 10.3.2 update. 

iOS 10.3.2's change log doesn't feature a long list of changes but, Apple says the update includes bug fixes (which include a small fix for SiriKit car commands) and security patches. 

The iOS 10.3.2 update features 23 security important patches and you'll want to read about all of them on Apple's website

Dig into those, and any bug fixes that emerge in the days after today's release, before you install iOS 10.3.2 on your phone or tablet. 

If you failed to download iOS 10.3.1 or iOS 10.3, you'll want to get familiar with their changes before you download iOS 10.3.2. This way, you won't be caught off-guard.

There are a few ways to get this done. You can take a look at our walkthrough. It'll go over the key differences between iOS 10.3.2 and the previous versions of iOS. It's a great place to start, especially if you're coming from iOS 10.2.1 or below.  

You'll also want to take a look at our list of reasons to, and not to, install the iOS 10.3.2 update on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. 

If you haven't dug into either one of these updates yet, now is a great time to do so.

    It has been 3 hours already and the download hasn’t finished yet. i wonder if it’s still downloading or it has stopped. i’m scared to do a hard stop as it might not work anymore.
