On September 18th, 2013 Apple is rolling out its biggest advancement in its mobile operating system to date. Apple's iOS 7 launches Wednesday. You will want to take time to make sure that your device is 100 percent ready for this major software update.

1.) Make sure! Before you make that upgrade there are a few things you want to make sure of.

2.) Make sure that your device is compatible. For iPhones, only Retina display handsets can support the new OS. That includes the iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5c, and 5s. For iPads, only the 1st generation is not compatible with this upgrade. That means that the iPad 2, 3, 4, and Mini will be upgradeable. Lastly the 5th generation iPod touch is also iOS 7 ready.


3.) Back it up! Next, you’ll want to back up all your photos and videos, if you don’t already do this regularly. Plug in your iDevice to your computer, then, if you run OS X, use Image Capture or Preview to Import All of your memories (or you can do selectively import only the media you really want to keep). On Windows, use Windows Explorer to view your photos and copy them to your machine.

4.) House Cleaning. Before you upgrade, why not do a bit of app house cleaning. Delete apps you never use, and update ones that need updating. This is your chance for a fresh start with a brand new OS.

5.) If you’ve done some major reorganizing, you’ll want to sync and backup to iTunes and iCloud (again, if you don’t regularly do this already). Your transition from iOS 6 to iOS 7 will likely be smooth and problem-free, but if something does go awry, you’ll be kicking yourself if your device isn’t fully backed up.

6.) After this, everything should be primped and primed for your much-anticipated download of iOS 7.
