In case you didn’t read any news in the last few days, iOS 6 beta 2 was released.
As with many of the sequential updates to iOS, iOS 6 beta 2 was a OTA (over the air) update. This is one of the cool and ingenious ways to roll out new software to any mobile iDevice.
While the process is an easy one, the notification sucks. There is no flagging you or the iDevice if there is an update to your software; not yet!
With that said, we put together a quick “how-to” on upgrading OTA.
Hit up your Settings app and navigate to General.
Once there, tap Software Update. Your iDevice will automatically start checking to see if your software is up to date.
After a few moments, it will tell you that iOS 6 beta 2 is available and ask you if you want to download it. It will give you a message about plugging in your iDevice or leaving it unplugged.
It is your choice, I always plug in my iPhone, just in case.
As with ALL updates, PLEASE make a backup!
One of the fun features (not seen in the screen shot below) is that the gears actually move while it’s downloading and installing the update to your iDevice.
Have you upgraded to iOS 6 yet? Are you running iOS 6 beta 2 yet?
