Updating software failed
It’s exciting to install a new firmware on your i OS device but you may sometimes come across a problem that will leave you disappointed.
An example is the “Software Update Failed: An error occurred downloading i OS 10.3.3” error that might pop up when installing i OS 10 over-the-air (OTA).
Press the close button to exit the error message, wait for a couple of minutes and then proceed with installing i OS 12 again from Settings Software Update.
If none of the above solutions work for you, consider updating to i OS 12.4 via i Tunes on your computer.
Make sure to let us know how the process goes in the comments below.
If your excitement of installing the i OS 12 update which was just released was cut short by “Software Update Failed: An error occurred downloading i OS 12” error then I can understand the frustration.
Sometimes it fails to install the update and reboots on its own. These days when everyone is getting the Android nougat update on their Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Lets first consider the potential reasons for this error: Remember that wiping cache partition does not delete any data from your phone.
Cache is the temporary files stored on your phone that helps to loads apps faster.
There are two types of errors which you get while installing the latest firmware on your S7. Either your phone is unable to download the update or it can extract the downloaded package properly.
Make sure that you download the correct IPSW file that corresponds to your device model.
Step 2: Connect your i Phone, i Pad or i Pod Touch to your computer and launch i Tunes. Step 4: Hold the Shift key in Windows or Alt/Option key on Mac and click the “Restore i Phone” button.
Therefore, it is best to wait for a few hours or days before trying again, as the load on their servers will be reduced.
If none of the above solutions work for you, consider updating to i OS 10 via i Tunes on your computer.
