In order to check, download, and install new iOS updates, your iPhone has to be connected to a Wi-Fi or Cellular Data network. Furthermore, larger updates can’t always be downloaded using Cellular Data, so a Wi-FI connection may be required.

Keeping Windows updated is important, but it doesn’t end there. You want to make sure your other apps are updated as well. Aside from bug fixes and new features, updating your apps ensures that you fix the inevitable security flaws that pop up in common third-party apps like Adobe Flash, Java, and so on.

Be sure to reboot when prompted; rebooting is an important part of the installation process. If you wait to reboot, the queue of items can be very long and rebooting will take longer.

For earlier Windows versions, the same process is possible, but check to make sure you haven’t turned off Windows Update.
