iOS and iPadOS 15.2.1: how to update
In this case to update the iPhone (or even the iPad) as usual, as for all operating systems of Applesi you will receive a notification directlyvia OTAon your smartphone. We recommend, if you have not done so, to make a full backup of your data directlywith iTunesorwith iCloud. This will allow you to recover all your information and data in the event of a problem and thus make it easier to restore in case something goes wrong.
To install the new iOS 15.2.1 There will be two paths to take: via OTA or via iPhone or via iTunes by connecting the devices. In the first case, the simplest and most immediate one, just go to your iPhone to update:
Settings —> General —> Software Update
At this point the system will check if the update is available, which is clearly affirmative, and the update can be activated by the user. The smartphone will download the entire update and automatically restart the device updating it to the latest version of iOS.
If, on the other hand, you prefer to update from iTunes, just connect the iPhone via cable and once recognized, just go to Summary and then Check Updates. At this point iTunes will ask if you want to update to iOS 15.2.1 and by giving consent it will be possible to update the devices that will restart once everything is finished.
