Can I update to iOS 8 over the air (OTA)?

Yes, updating a compatible iOS device to iOS 8 can be performed OTA (over the air). This means that iOS can update itself directly on the device, with no computer required.

update to iOS 8 OTA

In order to update OTA, there are some considerations:

The device to update must be connected to Wi-Fi, with over 50 percent battery life, or with the device plugged into a USB power source.

Updating to iOS 8 OTA also requires 4.6 GB of free space on the iOS 7 device. Without this amount of free space available, the OTA update cannot proceed.

To get started, navigate to Settings -> General -> Software Update.
