HOW DO I PROTECT MY COMPUTER?

Update your software
 
1.   If you have IT Support, no action on your part is required.
 
2.   If you do not have IT Support or they do not support your iPhone, iPod and/or iPad, updates may be obtained through iTunes only.


Installation note:

Since the automatic update process may take up to a week depending on the day that iTunes checks for updates, Apple recommends you manually obtain the update via the "Check for Update" button within iTunes. After doing this, the update can be applied when your iPhone is docked to your computer.
