iOS 6.1.2 now out for iPhone 5, how to update 16GB iPhone 5 software

Software updates typically contain fixes for certain bugs or issues the current system has. Apart from bug fixes, software updates are also rolled out to enhance performance of the existing mobile OS.

Late last year, Apple has rolled out the iOS 6.0.1 update for iPhone 5 smartphones. This update contains fixes for common issues experienced by many owners of iPhone 5 including the following:

1. Wi-Fi network issues

2. Passcode Lock bug

3. Camera problems

4. Exchange meetings bug

5. Keyboard issues

The latest software update available for iPhone 5 is the iOS 6.1.2, which was rolled out in the second week of February, 2013. This is the second incremental software update since Apple launched the iOS 6.1 update pack for iPod Touch, iPad and the iPhone.

The iOS 6.1.2 update was released late January of this year, integrated with a number of new features like the movie buying function for Siri and the new lock screen music controls, to name a few. But this small piece iOS 6.1.2 software update was primarily designed to deal with the Exchange bug.

Provided below is a quick guide for you to update your iPhone 5 with the latest available software update:

1. Tap the Settings icon from the home screen. This will let you get into the Settings menu.

2. From the list of sub-items, locate and tap General option to proceed to software update.

3. Locate and tap on Software Update. The General screen is also where you can find/modify settings for Siri, Cellular, VPN, iTunes Wi-Fi Sync, Spotlight Search and Auto-Lock options.

4. If your phone is update, you will be prompted with a Software Update notification telling that your software is up to date. Otherwise, a list of available update will show up. Just follow the onscreen prompts to complete the software update.

Note: Some software updates for iPhone 5 16GB models would require you to download an iOS updater app prior to getting the latest iOS version.
