Often you will be following a troubleshooting guide, or trying to do something on your iPhone, only to find that a particular setting or option isn’t there.
Apple releases news iOS versions periodically, and those updates add new features, change menus and settings, and can have a big impact on the layout of the device.
If you are trying to do something on your iPhone and having trouble, then it’s useful to know how to find your iOS version. This can help you to know whether or not you need to update before you are able to do something.
Fortunately you can follow the short guide below to learn where to find your iPhone’s iOS version.
How to Check iPhone iOS Versions
- Open Settings.
- Choose General.
- Select About.
- Find your iOS version next to Version.
If the version that you are using is lower than the one indicated in a guide that you are reading then you can elect to install an available iOS update. These are found at Settings > General > Software Update.
Installing a software update can use a lot of data, so it’s recommended to do it on Wi-Fi.
Additionally it can prevent you from using your iPhone for up to 30 minutes, so it’s best to start an update when you won’t need your phone for a little while.
