There are actually two ways to do this, the first is using the i OS device itself but there are caveats and limitations with that, and then there is the traditional method of downloading the update files directly from Apple without i Tunes, which is particularly helpful for those who rely on download managers or who are just encountering trouble with i Tunes automatic updates.
We will cover both methods of obtaining i OS software without using i Tunes to download it, we’ll start with the easiest method of using the device itself to get the i OS update. Thanks to OTA (standing for Over The Air) updates, you can also download updates to i OS directly on an i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch without even using i Tunes.

This gives them ease of access as they don't need to remember IDs and passwords of more than one email address. Moreover, you cannot change i Tunes account only after 90 days; if you change the account in between, your i Tunes Match and i Tunes in the i Cloud will not work until the next 90 days.

If your computer is using Personal Hotspot on the i OS device that you're updating, connect your computer to a different Wi Fi or Ethernet network before you update. Install the latest version of i Tunes on your computer.
If you do, scroll down to the section called Apple IDs are always linked to an email address, but the Apple ID and the email address are separate accounts with separate passwords.
It can be confusing because both accounts have the same username ([email protected], for example), but the accounts are entirely separate.
But cybersecurity experts are urging consumers not to ignore this update, which fixes an unprecedented type of security flaw. Some i OS software updates aren't available wirelessly.
Owners of i Phone 4s and later, i Pad 2 and later, i Pod touch (5th generation) and later can get this update, according to Apple's support website.

VPN or proxy connections might prevent your device from contacting the i OS update servers.
