Then comes terms and conditions so I press "I agree".
Straight away it starts downloading but it is pretty slow.
The "Unable to Verify Update" error is a big one, and quite annoying at that, with your i Phone or i Pad telling you you're no longer connected to the internet, even though you are.
Thankfully, this all-too-common issue is a legacy bug, first making an appearance a few i OS updates back, with the reasonably simple fix remaining the same.
I'll guide you through any issues you might have when updating to the latest version of i OS, and let you know the best methods to fix them.
I've split this guide into two sections: The regular, public updates (official launches) and the beta updates (which you'll have to be signed up to get) as both are handled a little differently. If it doesn't work, disconnect and reconnect to your Wi-Fi router or turn your router off and on again.
While for the most part, the free i OS updates are easy to install, there are a few common problems.
That was fairly easy to recover from by rebooting the device.
I work for an Apple retailer on the weekends, and this past weekend a cluster of customers came in with i Phones and i Pads that were in Recovery Mode — their screens displayed a globe icon and an image of a sync cable.
An error occured downloading IOS 7.1.2." I have tried rebooting my phone but that didn't work.
It's like something is preventing me from updating my phone but i don't know what it is Can please someone tell me what I am doing wrong Have you tried doing it using i Tunes after connecting the phone to a computer - Mac or a PC? You should be able to set the phone up as new if everything else fails.
Don't rely on the OTA, especially coz it's the old version of the OS you'll be getting.
