Hi mohdrabbani


I'm sorry to let you know iPhones 4 are not eligible to upgrade to iOS 8.

Here is the list of devices that are supported by the new iOS:


iPhone 4S

iPhone 5

iPhone 5S

iPhone 5C

iPhone 6

iPhone 6 Plus


iPad 2

iPad 3

iPad 4

iPad Air

iPad Mini

iPad Mini 2


iPod Touch 5G


So it will be impossible for you to, legally and without losing Apple Support and Warranty, update to iOS 8 due to hardware limitations.


Best Regards

Phill

Darijux,


Perhaps you've figured it out by now, but in case you haven't: Go to Settings > General > Software Update. The phone will search for a newer iOS version than the one currently running and give you an option to download if it isn't up to date. If your phone is an iPhone 4, the iOS will be version 7.1.2. Good luck.
