After 5 consecutive beta versions for developers and early users, the general public can now use the stable version.
According to many rumors, it is now official: A new version of the iPhone operating system, which contains bug fixes and additional functions, has been implemented for all users. The update is sent to all affected devices automatically.
However, if the installation is not available and automatic updates are disabled, you can download iOS / iPadOS 13.4 yourself. Operation is simple and fast and only requires a stable internet connection and minimal autonomy.
How to update your iPhone or iPad to iOS / iPadOS 13.4
In OTA (without connection to a computer)
- Open the Settings application
- Access the General menu
- Choose the Software update option
- Click on Install
Update via computer
To update via a Windows or Mac PC, you must connect your iPhone or iPad to the machine on which iTunes is installed, then click on the icon corresponding to the Apple software, an icon that normally appeared automatically after connection of the iOS device.
Note that with a Mac running macOS Catalina, iTunes is no longer available, the update procedure takes place in the Finder, choosing the iOS device in the bar displaying the available external drives and devices.
Both with iTunes and with the Finder, to launch the procedure, just click on “Update” on the right, below the small ad indicating that iOS / iPad OS 13.4 is available.
Finally, whether via OTA or connected to a computer, it takes a few minutes for the mobile to perform the update operation, then restarts to finish. And voila. During this time, make sure not to unplug the box to which you are connected, and if possible to remain plugged into an electrical outlet. It is imperative that the iPhone is turned on during the entire update, otherwise, it may crash and the OS may be damaged.
Were you able to install iOS 13.4 easily? If yes, are you experiencing technical problems? In this case, do not hesitate to share them with Apple directly, which will forward them to its team of developers to resolve them. It is in fact reputed to act quickly in the event of a breach, in particular of security.
