How to Update iPhone via Windows PC using Apple Devices App

In this guide, we will show you the steps to update your iPhone via the Apple Devices app on your Windows PC. After years of misery for Windows users, the Cupertino giant finally decided to jump over to the other side of the fence and be a tad bit flexible with its rival counterpart. While the iTunes app for Windows has existed for ages, but its presence felt more just for the sake of it, rather than having much consequential usefulness or importance.

Fortunately, not anymore. It has now split its iTunes app into Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple Devices. If we talk about Apple Devices, then it will allow you to manage your iPhone, iPad, iPod, and/or iPod Touch directly from your Windows PC. Apart from that, it also gives you the option to sync your files, photos, music, videos, etc. between your Apple Device and Windows PC. And the best part?
