How do you update iphone 3gs to the latest software?

I really want to update the software of my 3gs (currently running ios 4.1). If anyone knows how to, plz reply asap.
Thanks

Update it from iTunes on a computer as described at the bottom of this article; devices running an iOS version prior to 5.0 can't be updated straight from the device. It will be updated to the newest iOS release supported by the device’s hardware.
The maximum iOS version for the fourth generation iPod touch and iPhone 3GS is 6.1.6.

  • HT4623 How do you update the iPhone 3gs to the latest software?

    I do not have an iPhone 4.  I have an iPhone 3gs, and am trying to update the latest software.  I have tried three times already, and each time I have to wait 2 hours so it is frustrating.  It has not worked a single time yet.  Not much on the internet talks about updating a 3gs to the latest software, but I finally found something that said I had to have the latest iTunes.  I did not have the latest iTunes, so I am trying that now.  Hopefully that works.  If there's something I really need to do, please help.  I just want the latest software.

    Connect your phone to iTunes on a PC and you will be guided from there.
    Or - you could use the search facility on this page - there are thousands of hits.

  • HT4623 how do you update iphone 3gs ios 2.1 to 4.3 please help

    If it is a 3GS you cannot update it to 4.3, you can only update it to iOS 6. Install the latest version of iTunes on your computer, connect the phone, click on its name on the left, then click the "Check for Updates" button on the right.
    If you can't connect to your home WiFi try rebooting the router.

  • HT201210 Can't update iPhone 5 to the latest software 6.0.1

    Trying to update new iPhone 5 to iOS 6.0.1. All works fine except during the required auto backup it starts to back up and they stops saying either that the phone had disconnected (which is hasn't) or that the backup has failed. In both situations it says to disconnect the iPhone and reconnect and try again. I have tried various things like shutting down the iPhone and restarting, closing iTunes and restarting and nothing works. When I click on More Information on the error message, it says to update the software to fix the issue; wow...totally worthless help since that is what I am trying to do. I have also tried to back up to the computer rather than the iCloud and that also did not make any difference.
    Thanks for your help!

    He, Great info.  I am using a Dell XPS and had the phone disconnect issue as well when updating.  I did the reverse I added a hub and the system installed drivers for the hub.  When I plugged in the phone it installed a different driver for the phone and everything took off and worked.  So I guess try a different direction to the same solution. 
    Thanks

  • I have updated my iPhone 3s to the latest software. I had backed up my phone before I did this. Now I have lost my music and apps. I can't sync the phone with my Mac, I can't re-download as the phone says I don't have any music or apps available. Help!

    I have updated my iPhone 3Gs to the latest software in an attempt to iron out a problem with a new telephone network provider (Tmobile). I had backed up my phone before I did this. Now I have lost my music and apps. I can't sync the phone with my Mac, I can't re-download from iTunes as the phone says I don't have any music or apps available to re-download although it all shows up on my Mac. The music and app content cannot be restored when I try to restore the phone from the back up I madeon my Mac. Help!

    Working on that now.  I'm just getting frustrated that everytime I run updates for the phone I end up with tech problems that I have to spend time solving as opposed to updates that actually improve my usage.  Now I will once again get to spend hours reloading my phone all for updates that didn't affect my usage in the first place.

    how do you update iphone 4 on itunes 11.0.1.12. The old version of itunes was good. This version is horrendous.

    Your iPhone should be displayed top right when it is plugged in to your computer.
    Select your iPhone and you'll see in there there is the option to update.

    I Have the same issue on a brand new iPad mini 2. My battery is only lasting up to 5 hours. I went on chat with Apple last night and they said my battery is fine and its a Safari issue. I'm literally losing 1% every 3-4 minutes. I tried recalibrating my battery, signing out of iCloud, shutting off all locations, turning off background app refresh, restoring network settings, restoring all, and finally restoring from iTunes with no luck. This is just awful. I got this iPad so I could use it on my long flight for a trip I have coming up, and unfortunately, it's not going to last that long, plus I'm concerned about how many times i will be recharging my battery because of this since battery's do have a life cycle dependent on the number of charges. This is frustrating and needs to be fixed ASAP and addressed by Apple.
    By the way, Apple told me to bring my device to the Apple Store because it's still under warranty. That's great and all, but I'm going to waste my time if there is no fix for this issue.
    Ok so you want Apple to address the problem, but yet you don't want to take it to them just in case they can't fix it? What if they can fix it? Complaining here certainly won't fix it.

    I have updated my 3gs to the latest operating system but it is stuck in recovery mode and will not restore...any suggestions on getting it to restore?

    Yes, a message pops up on the computer that says..."The iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error occurred. (3014)" I tried to research this and tried all of the things Apple suggested but still am not having any luck with it. Thanks for any assistance you may provide!

  • Restoring/activating iphone 3gs on the latest ios

    kindly advise on what to do as i cant restore or activate my iphone 3gs with the latest update of ios since my itunes is not recognizing my iphone 3gs.

    That happened to me.
    Simply restore your phone from iTunes, then back up with your saved data.
    That should work fine, and that worthless iOS6 will be installed unfortunately.

  • TS4006 It will not update. Just sits in my App Store and freezes . I have a iPhone 4S with the latest software.

    It will not update. Just sits in my App Store and freezes . I have a iPhone 4S with the latest software.

    If it's freezing when you try to update apps, try force-closing the App Store app.  From your home screen, double-tap the home button, locate App Store in the list on the bottom, tap an hold it until it wiggles, tap to close it, tap the home button again.  Try updating again...any difference?
