If your device is not on the list, you cannot update to iOS 12.0. You can still use your device with the previous iOS version, but you will not get the new features and security updates.


If your device is on the list, you can proceed to the next step and back up your data before updating.


Back up your device: How to back up your data using iCloud or iTunes




Before you update to iOS 12.0, it is very important to back up your device. This will ensure that you do not lose any of your data, such as photos, contacts, messages, apps, settings, etc., in case something goes wrong during the update process.


You can back up your device using iCloud or iTunes. Here are the steps for each method:


Back up using iCloud




To back up your device using iCloud, you need to have a Wi-Fi connection and enough iCloud storage space. You can check your iCloud storage by going to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > Manage Storage. You can also buy more storage if you need to.


Once you have enough iCloud storage, follow these steps to back up your device:



  • Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network.



  • Go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup.



  • Turn on iCloud Backup if it is not already on.



  • Tap Back Up Now and wait for the backup to complete.



  • You can check the progress and confirm the backup by going to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup. Under Back Up Now, you should see the date and time of your last backup.



You can also enable automatic backups by turning on iCloud Backup. This will back up your device every day when it is connected to Wi-Fi, plugged in, and locked.


Back up using iTunes or Finder




To back up your device using iTunes or Finder, you need to have a computer with the latest version of iTunes or macOS Catalina or later. You also need a USB cable to connect your device to your computer.


Once you have everything ready, follow these steps to back up your device:



  • Connect your device to your computer using the USB cable.



  • If you are using a Mac with macOS Catalina or later, open Finder. If you are using a Mac with macOS Mojave or earlier, or a Windows PC, open iTunes.



  • If a message asks for your device passcode or to Trust This Computer, follow the onscreen steps.



  • Select your device when it appears in Finder or iTunes.Click Back Up Now and wait for the backup to complete.



  • You can check the progress and confirm the backup by going to Finder or iTunes > Preferences > Devices. You should see the name of your device with the date and time of your last backup.



You can also encrypt your backup by selecting Encrypt [device] backup and creating a password. This will protect your backup from unauthorized access and include your passwords, health data, and other sensitive information.


Now that you have backed up your device, you are ready to download and install iOS 12.0.


Download and install: How to get iOS 12.0 over the air or using a computer




There are two ways to download and install iOS 12.0 on your device: over the air (OTA) or using a computer with iTunes or Finder. Both methods require a Wi-Fi connection and enough battery life or a power source. You should also have enough free space on your device for the update file, which is about 2.77 GB for iPhone X.


Download and install over the air (OTA)




To download and install iOS 12.0 over the air (OTA), you need to use your device's Settings app. This is the easiest and most convenient way to update your device, as you do not need a computer or a cable. However, it may take longer to download the update file, depending on your internet speed and traffic.


To update your device over the air (OTA), follow these steps:



  • Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network.



  • Go to Settings > General > Software Update.



  • You should see a message saying that iOS 12.0 is available. Tap Download and Install.



  • If you see a message asking to temporarily remove some apps because iOS needs more space for the update, tap Continue or Cancel. iOS will reinstall any removed apps later.
