    Despite some controversies a few years ago involving complaints from users regarding new systems — reporting that they “forced” older devices to crash, in addition to saturating memory and storage — Apple has reasoned that this has been monitored and improved since then, so the company has been working so that all models compatible with its new systems can perform better — even older ones .

    It is also important to note that, in order for a new system update to be actually downloaded and installed, it is necessary that your device has the battery level above 28% or being loaded on the power supply, in addition to being naturally connected to a Wi-Fi network in order to download the new update.
