    I was just wondering should i use itunes on my macbook to updated to ios7 or should i just let the iphone and ipad mini do it on there own, what is the better way to make sure you lose no data at all?

    Just back up before you do either (to iCloud, iTunes or both), and you'll be fine either way. I personally just update via software update on the device. No need to plug it into the computer. Others prefer using iTunes. Just depends on what's easiest for you.

    Either way, if you have a backup, you'll be all set.
