You Should Prepare for iOS 12.4.6
If you're thinking about making the move from iOS 11 to iOS 12.4.6 or iOS 12.0/iOS 12.0.1/iOS 12.1/iOS 12.1.1/iOS 12.1.2/iOS 12.1.3/iOS 12.1.4/iOS 12.2/iOS 12.3/iOS 12.3.1/iOS 12.4/iOS 12.4.1/iOS 12.4.2/iOS 12.4.3/iOS 12.4.4/iOS 12.4.5 to iOS 12.4.6 make sure you prepare yourself, and your phone, for the move.
Moving from one operating system to another can be treacherous, particularly on older models like the iPhone 5s, so it's important to cover all of your bases before you start the download.
We've put together a pre-installation guide that will take you through the steps we take before we install new iOS software on our iPhones.
You don't need to follow every step, but we recommend making sure all of your data is properly backed up before you install iOS 12.4.6.
A little prep work can go a long way toward preventing issues so make sure you take your time. iOS 12.4.6 isn't going anywhere.
