iOS updates are usually smooth and uneventful, but sometimes things can go wrong. If you’re having trouble updating your iPhone or iPad, here are a few things you can try:
1. Check your internet connection.
A good internet connection is essential for downloading and installing iOS updates. If you’re having trouble connecting to Wi-Fi, try restarting your router or modem. If you’re still having trouble, try updating your device using a cellular data connection.
2. Make sure you have enough storage space.
iOS updates can be quite large, so it’s important to make sure you have enough storage space on your device before you start the update process. If you’re running low on storage space, try deleting old apps, photos, or videos. You can also try offloading apps that you don’t use very often.
3. Restart your device.
A simple restart can often fix minor software glitches. If you’re still having trouble updating your device, try restarting it before you try again.
4. Force restart your device.
If a regular restart doesn’t work, you can try force restarting your device. To do this, press and quickly release the Volume Up button, then press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Finally, press and hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo.
5. Update your device using a computer.
If you’re still having trouble updating your device wirelessly, you can try updating it using a computer. To do this, connect your device to your computer using a Lightning cable and open iTunes or Finder. If you’re using iTunes, select your device and click the “Check for Update” button. If you’re using Finder, select your device and click the “Check for Updates” tab.
