How do I update my iphone 4 with the lastest software 6.0.2?  I cannot find the download in App Store.  Also, how do I backup my phone before installing? 


iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.2

    The iOS 6.0.2 update is a bugfix not applicable to your device; not being given the chance to install it doesn't mean your device won't be able to use future iOS updates.

    OK, the question should be.  I cannot download facebook on my iphone4 because it required ios 4.3.  I obviously need to update my operating system?

    Turn on your computer

     

    open itunes.  make sure you have the latest itunes.

     

    Connect your iphone

     

    It should prompt you to update

    You don't get iOS updates from the App store, you go through iTunes or you do an over-the-air update (if you're on iOS 5 or later).  As noted above, the latest iOS for your phone is 6.0.1.

    If you do the iOS update through iTunes, the process starts by asking you if you want to do a backup first.  Say yes.

    Thanks everyone, so this will backup everything that I need and install the latest software to use my iphone4 with facebook?

    You should be syncing your iphone to your computer regularly and importing your pics, transferring your purchases, etc.

     

    You need to make sure that everything is on your computer before any update
