Step 1: Download iTunes 11.4 for Windows or Mac.

Step 2: Before you begin installing iOS 8, you must make a complete backup of your device either via iTunes or via iCloud.

Step 3: Once you are done with the backup, download iOS 8 links from here.

Step 4: Start iTunes. On your Mac, hold the Alt key (on Windows PC, this will be the Shift key), and click on the Restore iPhone… button. iTunes will then allow you to select the .IPSW you downloaded in the previous step. Select it.

Step 5: Now sit back and relax as iTunes installs iOS 8 on your device. This should take a few minutes. Once done, you will be all set to go on iOS 8.
