Hi,

I have an iPhone 5C. I'm being asked (by iTunes, when charging my phone, using my MacBook) to download the newest version of iOS for the iPhone, released in the last week/10days. I am given two choices 1) Download or 2) Download and Update. I'm not exactly clear on what Update means here, in this context. What are they updating, do I need it, no explanation is given. Can anyone explain this cogently in plain English what actually is updated?

Thanks,

Bob M.

iTunes is asking you if wish to:

1. Download the update and save it to install later....

or

2. Download it and install the update now.
