How do I update the iOS for my 1st generation iTouch?

I am having difficulty updating the iOS for my 1st generation iPod touch. It is currently at 3.1.3. Can anybody tell me if this is possible?

A 1G iPod Touch cannot be upgraded past iOS 3.1.3. Sorry.

    See the chart below to determine whether you can upgrade your device and what you can upgrade to. If you do not have a Software Update option present on your iDevice, then you are trying to upgrade to iOS 5 or higher. You will have to connect your device to your computer and open iTunes in order to upgrade.

  • How do I update the software on my 1st generation ipod touch?

    I have an ipod touch 1st generation. I am unable to upgrade the software so that I may use newer apps like Instagram. What can I do? I also have a new imac, and a first generation ipad. None of the calendars will synch! I must be missing something! So frustrated as I would like to be able to use all to full capacity and easiness among devices.

    A 1G iPod can only go to iOS 3.1.3 that you get here:

    Note that currently ther are not that many apps that will work with the 1G iiPod.

    If your iDevice is using a version of iOS lower than 5, you will need to use iTunes on your syncing computer to perform the upgrade. Use the Apple link below as a guide for the upgrade.

  • HT4623 i dont have the 'software update' option in my iphone 4 menu so how do I update the IOS?

    i dont have the 'software update' option in my iphone 4 menu so how do I update the IOS?

    If you never upgraded to iOS5 then you won't have the option to upgrade your phone "over the air".  To do an upgrade, connect your phone to iTunes and select the phone on the left menu bar.  You will see an option on the main page to Check for Update.  Select that and your phone will update to iOS6.
    It is recommended that you do a full backup of your phone before you begin the upgrade process.
    Hope this helps.

    I cancelled a payment through PayPal. How do I update the payment for that charge?  I looked at my payment information and it has my credit card information.  I'm not sure where to update the payment that was associated with my PayPal account?  I am not sure what that paid for?  I am trying to process updates on my IPhone & IPad for apps. I have already downloaded. 

    Hi Xellana, and a warm welcome to the forums!
    I'm looking for information and pricing on possibly upgrading the processor from the PowerPC to Intel.
    While anything is possible if you had enough money... NOPE, you can't change the CPUs to Intel, nor can you get any faster PPC upgrades for it. It'd be far cheaper to buy a new IntelMac than to replace everything inside the G5, and I mean just about everything, then figure out how to machine the case & such to mount Intel Logic Board, Graphic Card & such.
    Sorry.

    The best way is to connect it to the computer you normally use to sync it.
    Never synced it? You should. This is the only way to ensure it is properly backed up before upgrading iOS.

  • I have an iPad that I want to update to IOS 5.1. I have several apps that each were installed using a different iTunes ID. How can I update the IOS without losing the apps?

    I have an iPad that I want to update to IOS 5.1. I have several apps that each were installed using a different iTunes ID. How can I update the IOS without losing the apps?

    To update your phone requires using the latest version of iTunes, on your computer, as well as Internet access. The update to iOS 5.0 or higher is an erase/restore deal, so you not only have to make sure all of the content, currently on your phone, is on your computer and accessible, you need to update iTunes first, have Internet access, then update your phone. There is no way around this fact. You could go to an Apple store or use another computer, but you run the risk of losing all of your data it you do that.

    Plug your phone to your PC - open itunes - itunes should automatically see that your phone needs an upgrade.

    I have itunes updated but it doesn't show that an update is available for the ipod.

    Probably because yu have a 1G iPod that can only go as high as 3.1.3. To identify your iPod:

    how much is a new CD for a 1st generation silver iMac?

    You're talking about the original install disks? Call Apple and give them your serial number; I believe they have a nominal charge of around $20 including shipping (?). Or, if you Mac came with an earlier OS than Lion, you could also buy the retail Snow Leopard ($29) in case you want to downgrade.

  • How do I update the iOS software on iTunes for Windows

    Hi all.
    The battery life in my phone was decreasing very quickly to the point where I have turned it off with 100% at night, and wake up in the morning to have it at 0%. So yesterday, after making a few calls I got to this nice man who explained to me that it was not a problem with the battery, but I needed to update to the latest version of iOS (generally fixes the problem). I don't have enough space (and cannot clear it), so he suggested another option. I would have to use iTunes. First he told me to upload my data to iCloud. As I have not done it before, it took a while, and it did not work for a while. He sent me the link of what to do via email (Update the iOS software on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch - Apple Support) and hung up, after me thanking him. My cloud finally updated a little before 10PM GMT and I went to sleep. In the morning my battery was not dead, albeit it had only gone done by a few %. However, I still want to update to the newest software.
    I have the latest version of iTunes on my laptop and so this morning I plugged in my phone to my laptop (using the computer - phone plug). However I cannot see where to select my device. My phone is not coming up in any corner, and it is not charging when it is plugged into my laptop either (I read somewhere that it should). So my question is, how do I select my device. It is plugged in but it not coming up for me. Please be as explicit as possible.
    If it helps I have an iPhone 4s bought in December 2013.
    Thank you!

    I'm not sure if it should be here or in the iPhone usage forum.
