Before downloading the update, we recommend that you connect the device to the charger in order to prevent it from turning off suddenly during a firmware update. Depending on the load on the Apple server and the speed of your Internet connection, the update itself may take from several minutes to one hour. We recommend that you upgrade through your Wi-Fi network so as not to pay for accessing the Internet through your mobile service provider.
After connecting to a Wi-Fi network, launch the Settings app and open the panel The main Software Update. The iOS system will automatically detect the availability of updates and inform you of the readiness to download the updated version of iOS 10.
Note: If you want to leave the jailbreak, update the system through the iTunes application, and not through the built-in update mechanism of the device itself, since it is with the latter update method that most often there are various kinds of problems when jailbreaking.
Press the button “Download and Install”, to start updating. While the update is downloading, we recommend doing anything, but not your iOS device. After downloading the update, the device will let you know that it is ready to install it.

If there is not enough free space in the device’s memory for wireless updates, it is recommended that you update via the iTunes application using the recommendations listed below.

If you can’t install the iOS 10.3.2 update wirelessly on your device, you can do this by downloading the iOS 10.3.2 firmware file for your device and installing the update manually through the iTunes application.
Before you connect the device to your computer, make sure that you are using the latest version of iTunes. In the system menu bar, select the line “Checking for updates”.

Your device will upgrade to iOS 10.3.2 and will be restarted once or twice during this process. At the end of the successful update process, you will see the “Hello” welcome window on the device screen. Follow the on-screen instructions.
