How to update to iOS 7

In this tutorial I will demonstrate how to upgrade your iDevice to iOS7.

If you are a WINDOWS user  you will need to download the .ipsw file from one of the mirrors below. If your mirror downloads as a .dmg file you will need to extract the .ipsw file from it using the following free tool.

If you are on MAC you dont need any extra software, the OS will extract the .dmg file with no worries.


iPad: coming soon.

If you are unsure what model of phone you have please use this support guide from apple


Be sure to backup your devices using iTunes 11 or through iCloud backup prior to installing iOS 7 beta. After installing iOS 7 beta, you can restore your device using either iTunes 10.6.3 or through your iCloud backup.

Step 1: Download the latest official iOS for your device This will be iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5 and iOS 6.1.4 for all other supported devices: iPhone, iPod, iPad and Firmware/Software Download. This will remove your jailbreak if you have one.

Step 2: Download iOS 7 for your device (using the mirrors above)

Step 3: I restored my device to the latest IOS6 forst then set up as NEW, you may want to restore to the latest iOS 6 and set it up as a new device before continuing but i have be told that it will work without doing this.

Step 4: If you’re on Mac press Alt and Click on the ‘check for updates button’ (hit shift and left mouse click for Windows) down together, you need to select iOS 7 for your device now (the one you just downloaded), when the device finishes updating it will be on iOS 7 activated.

*Disclaimer, you do this at your own risk, although it has proved to work, only you are responsible for what happens. Usually your device needs to be registered as a developer to work, but either a flaw in the system or a genuine move by apple has allowed anybody to install iOS7.
