HT4528 I have an Iphone 5s and I have a notice to do a software update.  When I click to update it says "Unable to Update, an error occured while checking for a software update".  This has been going on for 3 wks.  I have shut my phone off, and turned it

I have an Iphone 5s and it says i have a Software update.  However, it will not update. I have rebooted my phone and it hasn't helped.  Any suggestions?

Hello bdollbarnes,
Thank you for the details of the issue you are experiencing when trying to update your iPhone.  I recommend the following steps:
Download takes a long time, or you can't reach update server
iOS updates require a persistent Internet connection, and the time it takes to download the update will vary according to the size of the update and your Internet speed. You can use your device normally while downloading the iOS update, and iOS will notify you when you can install the update. To improve the speed of the download, avoid downloading other content.
If you get a message that "an error occurred downloading iOS," try again later. If the issue persists, try updating your device in another network or use iTunes to update your device. Learn more about iOS updates.
