I want to update my iPhone 5s which now has iOS 7.1 to iOS 8.1.

My question is: If I update it from iTunes is the 5.1 gb iOS 8 going to remain on my computer or it will be deleted after the update is done?

1 Answer 1


iOS software updates are stored in ~/Library/iTunes. If it remains there after the upgrade you can easily delete it yourself.

  • Also, iOS 8.1 is not 5.1GB in size. It's about 2GB.
