That was a few years ago, and unfortunately, not much has changed with the most recent versions, which at the time of this writing is i Tunes 12.

Even though i Tunes has become a staple of most PCs, it has also earned a reputation as a despised piece of software.

In fact, it won the Groovy Post award for worst software ever.

Once a notification about a new update shows in your phone, you only need to tap it and wait until the update is finished.

Installing an i OS update this way can sometimes become problematic though.

Proceed to download i Tunes from Appleā€™s website then follow the pre-requisite instructions for installing i Tunes.

Also, disable your Antivirus temporarily since some security utilities can incorrectly flag i Tunes as malicious software.

If you encounter errors with the Windows Installer, you could try re-registering the Windows Installer then attempt the install again.

Update: Some systems with older video cards might experience a problem installing i Tunes.

HRESULT: 0x80073715", "Apple Mobile Device Service failed to start", and message alerts like "Apple application support was not found (Windows error 2)" it's due to incompatible versions of i Tunes being downloaded from the Apple's official download page.

The root cause of the i Tunes installation issue has reportedly been attributed to incorrect and incompatible versions of i Tunes being downloaded from the Apple's official download page: Tunes.

All of these recommendations seem over the top for such a small app, but i Tunes is not the simple 18 MB installer of 2003.
