Let’s talk briefly about the algorithm for solving a similar problem.

  • Check the memory status. If it is not enough to download and install updates, it will not work. You need to delete some data from the device and try again.
  • Low battery charge. The device will not update if the charge is too low. Connect your iPhone or iPad to the network.
  • System problems. If you are dealing with an unlocked device, serious problems may arise with its support and installation of a new version of the system.
  • Problems with the program. If you are updating your device using iTunes. Make sure you have the latest version of this program installed. If there is no iTunes download from the manufacturer’s website.
  • Cable problems. He could just be damaged. If the device has a Lightning connector, the lanyard must be branded. Otherwise, the iPhone will not accept it.
  • Internet connection problems. The problem is trivial, but check the Wi-Fi signal, try connecting to this router from other devices. If it doesn’t work, contact your provider or check your router settings.

If during the update we encounter the known “freezing on an apple” hold down the power and home buttons. Hold for a few seconds. This will force the device to reboot. It is possible that after that the device will be quietly updated properly.

So, we try to update using iTunes.

Create a system backup.

  • Connect iPhone to computer.
  • Make a forced restart (home and power buttons).
  • Wait for the recovery screen.
  • When the appropriate window appears, select “update”.
  • The lion’s share of cases are those problems that are listed at the beginning of the article. This makes it possible to quickly and painlessly restore the device. Can’t turn to a more serious procedure that requires recovery / update.

          Can’t update iPhone how to be and what to do?

          Hello! Most recently, I faced such a problem, my iPhone categorically refused to update to the new firmware version, both through iTunes and through iCloud. It just displayed the inscription Failed to install the software update. An error occurred while loading iOS. Although in fact the update was not only available, but already downloaded to the device. A riddle? Even some! But the answer was successfully found by me and now my iPhone is running the latest mobile axis.

          And, of course, I could not help but share this joy and wrote detailed instructions on how to successfully solve the problems associated with installing new firmware versions on Apple devices. Wow, how bent! 🙂 Let’s go!

          The first thing you should pay attention to is whether your device supports the version of the software that you are trying to install. For example, iOS 12 and all its modifications can be installed on:

          Ipad mini 2nd generation, iPad Air and later.

        • Iphone 5S and all subsequent models.
        • Ipod touch 6.
        • Have you checked? Does your technique fit this list? If the answer is yes, then we proceed as follows.

          In the main menu, go to the main profile settings (at the very end of the list).

          Feel free to delete everything that is there.

          Ipad Is Not Updating

          Reboot your phone or tablet.

          By the way, this method helped me, for some reason the iOS beta Software Profile interfered with the update. Apparently because I often install test firmware and get access to new functions before anyone else 🙂 Do you want it too? Read how to install beta versions of iOS.

          After removing it, everything went like clockwork and took a fairly small amount of time (about 20 minutes).

          In any case, here are a few more points that may prevent the installation of new software and it makes sense to pay close attention to them:

          • Check the charge level, should be more than 50% or simply connected to the mains charger (Important! It is recommended to use the charger from the outlet!).
          • It may well happen that Apple’s servers are overloaded, this often happens on the days of presentations and the release of new versions of iOS. Read here how to check their status at the moment. In this case, it remains only to wait, usually not much (from 1 hour to a day).
          • A trivial thing to check if the Internet is functioning normally, if the connection is poor, the update process can take a long time.
          • In the case when the update cannot be performed directly from the device, you can and should use iTunes for this operation. Make sure the version of the program is the latest (how to do it?). Almost always, when you connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer, iTunes itself will offer to install a new version of the software. If this does not happen, then we will install the update forcibly. To do this, we use this instruction for restoring software (Attention! Create a backup copy so as not to lose all data).
          • Changing the USB port, Lighting cable, Wi-Fi hotspot, computer in the end can also help troubleshoot problems.

          As you can see, there is nothing complicated, all the tips are quite simple and easy to do at home. But, at the same time, their implementation will almost 100% help to put the fresh version of the software on your iPhone. So we need to act!

          Addition! Updating over Wi-Fi may be interfering with a non-working fingerprint scanner. Is the fingerprint sensor not functioning on your device for some reason? Installing a new firmware version is possible only through iTunes. And one more thing, if you are faced with the error Cannot check the iOS update, then this instruction will suit you. Wow, I don’t seem to have forgotten anything 🙂

          After all the manipulations done, the iPhone still does not want to update, or do we get some incomprehensible errors? Write in the comments we will figure it out together!

          Method: Wait a bit

          As trite as it sounds, it makes common sense. When an iOS update is released, almost all users are notified, which means they start installing the system update at the same time. And sometimes Apple’s servers can’t handle such huge traffic. From here, an error occurs, and users start complaining: My iPad is not updating. Well, all you have to do is wait a while until the traffic drops. As soon as the traffic drops, you can update your iPad and fix the problem. The update for iPad was downloaded but not installed.

          Updating the device software

          It’s always a good idea to keep your iPhone or iPad operating system up to date. If you have one of the devices listed below, it is especially important to update the software wirelessly or using a computer by November 3rd to ensure proper GPS operation.

          If you do not install the latest version of iOS before November 3, the GPS location may be inaccurate on some models.

          Additional Information

          If you experience the same problems after updating your device, see these articles.

          Preparing to upgrade

          Check Wi-Fi connection

          Ios update always requires a Wi-Fi connection. And therefore, if you cannot update the iPad, this may be the reason. Check if your iPad is connected to Wi-Fi. If not, connect. Also check if the Wi-Fi connection itself is working. Contact your Internet Service Provider if necessary. These measures may help if the iPad does not update due to lack of internet connection.

          Installing iOS 10.3 using iTunes

          If you prefer to stick with the traditional methods of installing new firmware, you will probably use iTunes to install iOS 10.3. If so, just follow these steps.

          4. Once this window appears, click the Download and Update button to begin the iOS 10.3 installation process.

          Installing iOS 10.3 over the air

          If for some reason you are unable or unwilling to use iTunes, there is another way to update to the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system.

          1. Make sure your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is connected to a power source. This is not required, but this way you can ensure that your device does not run out of power during the iOS 10.3 installation process. Also make sure the device is connected to Wi-Fi.

          2. Go to the Settings menu. Basic. Software Update. Most likely there will already be an update available to iOS 10.3. However, depending on the speed of your Wi-Fi, it may take some time for the device to connect to Apple servers and receive confirmation that an update is available.

          3. Now click on Download and Install and follow the instructions on the screen. If the update has not yet been downloaded to the device, it will connect to Apple servers and download all the necessary files for installation. This may take a while, so please be patient.

          Update or restore your device via iTunes

          If all the above methods did not help you, then most likely you will have to update your device through iTunes on your computer. Just connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer and open iTunes. In the device information window, press the Refresh button.

          The procedure for updating and restoring software is described in more detail in this article.

          Thank you, I will know for the future, but I have never encountered such a thing before.

          I had this with 7.0.4 Helped to check on 3G instead of Wi-Fi. Moreover, the iPhone and iPad are the same.

          I also had this with 7.0.4. Helped with iTunes

          I have an iPhone 4s. And version 7.1.2, all iPhones already have an update, but it doesn’t come to me. What to do?

          The first method helped me, thank you very much.

          I click on software updates and it says to me: check for updates and nothing happens what to do?

          How many problems does an apple have?

          Have not seen the iPhone 5s and iPad 4. I started to worry. I looked in the net for half an hour. And then you write your article. Thank)

          I write that it is not possible to check the update, because the device is no longer connected to the Internet, I tried it in two ways, I have 4 S, thanks!

          I have 5s the same bullshit
          Jobs died on service

          Did everything, nothing helped.
          Device-iPhone 5s

          In general, nothing was needed, everything was already updated

          My iPad Mini 1 generation, does not see the update at all, says they say 9.2.1 is the current version

          Iphone 4 can be upgraded to ios8 or 9?

          I have an iPad mini 1. Installed 9.3.5. I check for availability, the latest software is installed. I tried resetting the network, it didn’t help. There is no time to update via iTunes, what to do?

          Thank you so much for shortening iPad mini 1! What for? For what? Do I have to buy every product from the company so that the programs are compatible with my device and IOS? Lol, but no! I will be a hater and will use samsung! Dosviduli Apple.

          I have an iPad mini 2 and want to update to iOS11, but when I go to the software update, it says that iOS 9.3.5 has the latest software installed. What to do?

          I have an iPhone 5s and I have this problem. The iPhone itself lasts about 3-4 years if the memory does not lie. I go to the App Store and download the application, and then I need the iOS 10.0 version in English. And I can’t download almost any application. It all jumps out and jumps out. And I go to the settings to update to 10.0 and then Check for an update does not disappear. Usually when I turn on the phone, sometimes a notification comes and asks for an update. They say it is not updated since the old one, is that so? Or is there still a chance? Please answer, don’t ignore!

          A timely OS update is the calling card of the Cupertino tech giant. When it comes to software updates, Apple never disappoints its customers. However, many users face various kinds of errors on their devices when updating their iOS to the latest version. And lately, a large number of iPad users have rushed to the Internet asking: why is my iPad not updating to iOS 12? Well, we have several ways to solve this problem. However, before we get to them, let’s take a look at the possible causes of this error.

          Updating the device software

          Gps location may be inaccurate on some models without updating to the latest iOS version available for the device.

          Free up iPad storage

          You can easily free up storage space on your iPad. Music and take up the most storage space on any iOS device. To clean up space and fix the iPad won’t update due to insufficient storage space, follow the steps below.

          • Go to Settings. Select General and click on Storage.
          • Select the Manage option. A list of applications and the amount of memory they occupy will appear.
          • Swipe left on the name of any application and tap Delete to clear space.

          Additional Information

          If you experience the same problems after updating your device, see these articles.

          Have you encountered a situation when, when you wanted to update to a new version of iOS, your iPhone or iPad did not find an update or reported an error in the Software Update settings? In this article, we will tell you about several ways to solve the problem where instead of the available update the message Check for update does not disappear.

          Check Wi-Fi connection

          Ios update always requires a Wi-Fi connection. And therefore, if you cannot update the iPad, this may be the reason. Check if your iPad is connected to Wi-Fi. If not, connect. Also check if the Wi-Fi connection itself is working. Contact your Internet Service Provider if necessary. These measures may help if the iPad does not update due to lack of internet connection.

          Is your device jailbroken (Cydia)?

          If the Cydia application is installed on your device (jailbreak), then this is the main reason why the iOS 10 Update is not available along the Settings path. Basic. Software Update. The jailbreak developers specifically block the ability to update over the air. The fact is that when you update your iPhone or iPad with a jailbreak, the device turns into a brick (eternal chamomile, white apple, etc.).

          In order to install iOS 10 on a jailbroken device, you need to perform the iPhone (iPad) Restore procedure in iTunes. Detailed instructions are posted here.

          In other cases, try the methods below:

          Synchronize purchases with Mac / PC

          If none of the above points helped, and the application still flatly refuses to load (there is no way to either pause installations or uninstall it), you need to synchronize with the stationary version of iTunes.

          Logging in to your account again

          You can reanimate a frozen application by logging out of the account with re-authorization.

          Check internet connection

          The reason why the application may not load or update may be a banal lack of Internet traffic or problems in the operation of the Wi-Fi wireless network around you. The icon of a working Wi-Fi, 3G or LTE still says nothing.

          Solution: Open the Safari browser and go to any web page. If everything is in order with the connection, we move on.

          Full factory reset

          You can resume downloading the application in a drastic way by performing a full reset.

          Solution: Start small and do a Network settings reset: open Settings Reset Network settings reset. In case that doesn’t help either, get ready for a complete reset of all settings. Back up your iOS device before performing this step. Open Settings General Reset Reset All Settings.

          Remove app and reinstall

          Complete removal of the application (if possible) with further reinstallation can help in this situation.
