Tips On How To Fix The iOS 7 Error Message
If you are looking for some tips on how to fix the iOS 7 Error messages that you may be getting when downloading the new OS, then follow our easy guide.
Some of the error messages that users are receiving, are simply down to the amount of people trying to download the new software update at the same time. This can only be resolved over time as Apples servers try to catch up.
We have published some helpful tips below to try and help you get through the download process quickly and effectively.
If you are receiving the error messages when downloading, try the following:
- Firstly, check that your device is compatible with the software. The full list of devices that support iOS 7 include iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPad 2, iPad with Retina display, iPad Mini, and the iPod Touch 5th generation.
- Before installing new software, make sure music, photos, contacts, files and more are backed up using iTunes and iCloud as this will save precious data on your device should the worst happen. Backup options can be accessed by going to Settings > General and then iCloud.
- It’s also worth making sure that the handset and any associated computers are running the most up-to-date version of iTunes 11.0.5 as this is what most of iOS 7 is set to change over from.
- To download iOS 7, go to Settings > General > Software Update. Click Download when the option appears and then Install – it may not appear straight away because Apple rolls out the software in stages.
- The phone must be connected to Wi-Fi in order for the update to be completed and your device should be plugged into a wall socket (the computer is not an option here) so that it does not run out of power during the update.
So what if you still receive an error message during the update??
- If you still get an error message during the update, you are probably one of the unlucky ones to get kicked off by Apples overloaded servers and will need to follow the 5 steps below…
1. Restart your device
2. Disable your Wi-Fi
3. Turn off your device for five minutes
4. Turn your device back on and enable Wi-Fi
5. Try the download again
By following these simple steps, you should soon have access to the new iOS 7 platform and be able to get your fingers on all its new features.
