Upgrading to iOS7

Friday, March 7th, 2014

On February 21st, Apple released a security patch for iOS that addressed a major flaw in both iOS 6 and iOS 7. Only users of the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 4th generation were granted access to a version that kept their devices on iOS 6, thus forcing thousands of users at Stanford to upgrade from iOS 6 to iOS 7.

During this Tech Briefing, Ammy Woodbury discussed why this patch was so critical. She also covered:

  • new features of iOS7
  • navigational tips and tricks
  • how to change settings to make iOS 7 look and feel a little more like iOS 6
  • tricks to optimize your iPhone and iPad experience

Note: The Information Security Office recommends upgrading to iOS 7.0.6 immediately. Be sure to back up your iOS device prior to upgrading, either via iTunes or iCloud. Then, go to Settings>General>Software Update to upgrade your operating system.

Ammy has made the presentation slides available.
