A guide to iOS 10 [OTA fixed!]

Backup your device before updating!

When is iOS 10 being released?

14/09/16 0100AM SGT
Should I use iTunes or OTA?

OTA is the fastest
I tried to update, but it says I'm up-to-date on iOS 9.3.5

Turn off WiFi, make sure you're able to connect to the internet through your cellular provider.
  1. Double click your home button
  2. Close the "Settings" App
  3. Open the settings app again and head to General -> Software Update
Nope, still no go. It's already 1am bro.

The servers are probably being hit hard by everyone trying to update. Go catch some rest and update tomorrow. It's just an update.
The OTA failed.

Don't panic, go to your Macintosh or PC and plug in your iPhone (make sure iTunes is up-to-date) and when your device appears. Select the option to update, not restore. You should be able able to get your device with the data retained.

If it doesn't work, you'll need to attempt a restore, and then retrieve the data from the backup you've made earlier
My battery is draining so fast/my device is so warm and slow

It's fine, it's perfectly normal, your iPhone is indexing your photos and all.

If you're plugged in, it's normal as well because iPhone has this a feature that make use of machine learning to identify objects in your photos to make it easily searchable.

How long it'll take depends on the number of photos you have in your Photo Library.
My phone wants me to press the home button to unlock. And I don't want this.

There's an option to remove this setting. Simply go to
  • General
  • Accessilbity
  • Home Button
  • Make sure the option "Rest Finger to Open" is toggled
