Here is how you can upgrade your Apple device to iOS 9:
    ■Make sure that your device has enough battery life left. Having at least 80% should be plenty, though having your phone or tablet plugged in is ideal.
    ■From the Home screen tap Settings.

    ■From the Settings window, tap General.

    ■Tap Software Update from the General window.

    ■Wait until your device checks for the availability of iOS 9 and you are displayed with the Update Requested message at the bottom of the window.

    ■Wait until iOS 9 is downloaded.

    ■Once the download completes, on the displayed notification box, tap Close.

    ■From the bottom of the Software Update window, tap Install Now.

    ■Tap Agree from the bottom-right corner of the Terms and Conditions window.

    ■Wait until the downloaded update is verified and installed.
    Note: Your device may start a few times during the process. This is normal. Do not disturb the installation.

    ■On the Update Completed window, tap Continue.

    ■Tap Enable Location Services on the Location Services window.
    Note: Alternatively you can tap Disable Location Services and enable the services later.

    ■On the Create a Passcode window, type a 4-digit numerical passcode.
    Note: Alternatively you can tap Passcode Options to check the other types of passcodes that iOS 9 can accept to secure your Apple device.

    ■Retype to confirm your passcode in the Re-enter your passcode field.

    ■On the Apple ID window, type your current Apple ID and its password in the corresponding fields and tap Next from the top-right corner.
    Note: If you don’t have an Apple ID or have missed it, you can tap the Don’t have an Apple ID or forgot it link to get a new ID or retrieve the lost one.

    ■On the Diagnostics window, tap Send to Apple or Don’t Send as preferred.

    ■Finally on the Welcome to iPhone window, tap Get Started to start using iOS 9 on your iPhone normally.
