Apple iOS 12: How to Download
Users are suggested to back up their data using iTunes or iCloud before downloading the iOS 12. Post this, the iOS 12 can be installed through an over-the-air (OTA) update. For this, users will have to go to Settings > General > Software update on their iOS device. A point to note here is that the device should be well charged, preferably over 50 percent and that it has to be connected to a Wi-Fi network.
Another way of getting the latest iOS is through iTunes wherein users can plug their device to a Mac or Windows system and download the iOS 12 by opening iTunes, clicking on the iPhone/ iPad symbol and pressing on the "check for software". Then they can download and install the update.
