Apple has just released iOS 13 to the public and is now available for download via air for users. Did your iOS update fail for some reason? Read on as we walk through some common problems and solutions.

Remove and download the update again
One of the easiest ways to explore an iOS update is to simply start the process. This will require you to tailor the downloaded file and re-download it and continue the update process again.

  • Open the Settings app
  • Click General
  • Press "Store iPhone"
  • In the apps list, you'll see an iOS update
  • Click Update
  • Click Delete
  • You can now download the update again


Manage your iPhone's storage space

One of the most common reasons for iOS update failure is lack of storage space. This is an easy solution, as long as you are willing to make some short-term sacrifices by deleting music, apps, photos or videos.

  • Open Settings
  • Click General
  • Press "Store iPhone"
  • Allam sees


Simply delete enough items to free up the required storage space by updating iOS. The easiest thing to delete is videos - which you can re-download after installing the update.

"Unable to verify update" error

Another common error while trying to update to a new version of iOS is that your iPhone is "unable to check for an update." The error does not provide much clarification, as Apple just says "An error occurred while checking the software update".

Another common error will say that Apple is "unable to verify" the update.

The easiest way to solve these problems is to restart your iPhone. Apple also suggests that you try to update your device using a different WiFi network.

Update using iTunes or Finder (Catalina)

If everything else fails, Apple suggests updating via iTunes (or Finder if you're running macOS Catalina). Here's how:

  • Connect your device to your computer.
  • Open iTunes or Finder and select your device.
  • Click Summary, and then click Check for an update.
