Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

            From a previously closed post, I was advised to carry out a firmware update as part of some troubleshooting strategies to resolve disconnection issues with an iPhone 5S.  Seeing that I am unsure with respect to what this exactly means, I am even more confused about the steps for achieving this goal.  Given my openness here, I am wondering if someone could briefly explain in simple terms what firmware update means in addition to providing step by step procedures for carrying it out.  

              Any review and attention given in response to this post will be greatly appreciated.

              Thank you.
