    iPhone 5 update. 9th Oct 16 at 9:35 PM
    ive got an iPhone 5 that I've had for a few years and is running well on iOS 7, I've just got a next base dash cam and one of its features is it can send any clips wirelessly to my phone but to get the app I need to do this I need to down load iOS 10. Can anyone tell me the pros and cons of this upgrade please? Thanks.

    I know it's an update but I hear that they aren't all good, my question was what are the pros and cons as I don't want to update it and lose all my contacts or pics I have stored on it.

    You wont lose your contacts or pictures but will propably slow you phone down.

    updating doesn't do a thing to your contacts, messages, mails, photos etc

    It will just add more junk that you won't either notice or use and slow your phone down a tad
    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    One thing about iOS 10 is the ability to hide unused apps i.e. Stocks, Videos etc.

    Granted it doesn't delete them from the device saving storage but it's great.

    Personally I would update to iOS 10. You'll have various patches and fixes for starters.

    do a backup in case anything goes wrong , I am also told it is better to do the update via iTunes rather than by wifi

    As above, do a backup, preferably two to iCloud and iTunes, and its better to update via iTunes rather than over the air (if you've not updated since iOS 7 and think you have to update via iTunes?).
