Apple is releasing iOS 17.4 to all users today, so it’s about time. Although iOS 17.4‘s developer and public betas have been available for some time, the most recent stable version of Apple’s new mobile OS is now available for download and installation.

But first, a friendly reminder: it’s always a good idea to back up your device’s data before messing around with your operating system.

Updating to iOS 17.4 on an iPhone

  • Access the software update by navigating to Settings > General > Software Update.
  • Simply give it a little while and see if the update notice shows up. It might help to take a break and return to it later if that doesn’t work.
  • To begin, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click the “Upgrade” button if prompted. In any case, when you see the option to “Install Now” or “Download and Install,” tap on that and do as instructed. (If you’re worried about losing your phone and would rather have it updated while you’re asleep, you’ll also have the option to download it tonight.)
  • Likely, you’ll be prompted to input your passcode and accept the standard lengthy set of conditions.

There will be some welcome instructions on how to set up your phone so that it can use the new features after the installation is finished. Have fun!

Back up your iPhone.
