Updating firmware ipod touch


Using IPSW is often considered advanced but it’s actually pretty easy, just follow along with these directions and you’ll be along your way.

If you go that route, do not forget to backup beforehand.To use the latest version of IPSW firmware files to update or restore an i OS device, you’ll want to be sure you have the latest version of i Tunes installed as well.Going the IPSW route can take longer to update than using the newer OTA (over the air) method, the reason being that OTA uses smaller delta updates than the larger IPSW files, which are the full sized downloads and are often literally 10x the download size.i OS 9 doesn’t focus as much on new features as it does on the plumbing work, which makes your i OS gadgets run faster, be more responsive and consume less battery.“The apps in i OS 9 now take advantage of Metal, making more efficient use of the CPU and GPU to deliver faster scrolling, smoother animation, and better overall performance,” writes Apple.Though the average user is better off going the easy routes of updating i OS with i Tunes or OTA, IPSW can have very practical uses as well.
