In other words, the moment you get your shiny new phone, do not forget to update. And how do you update? It's simple - like any other iPhone. Go to Settings > General > Software Update and then tap on Download and Install. There's nothing more to it at all.

Instead of doing that, you can just connect your iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Pro to your Mac, launch iTunes or Finder and then click on Restore iPhone. Your IPSW file will be downloaded automatically and then restored onto your iPhone. It's a nice and simple way to do a clean install, and we will recommend it if you have a really fast internet connection.
