IPhone or ios not updating- Reasons & Solutions

Recently, I noticed that some iPhone, iPad and iPod users are finding it difficult to update on their devices. This solution works majorly for "ios update failure" but can also be applied to "Apps update failure". After some findings by TechphoneReviews, we were able to come up with some effective solutions that solve the problem perfectly. In this post, we won’t be jumping straight into solutions, we will follow our normal one step at a time approach, we will discuss the causes of iPhone, iPad and iPod Apps not updating before jumping into solutions
Causes of IPhone, IPad, iPod Not Updating
·        Your iPhone, iPad or iPod couldn’t detect any direct upgrade
·        Bad Network Connection
·        Device is Jailbroken

Solutions to iPhone,iPod, Ipad IOS or App not Updating
Note: Before applying any of the solutions, make sure you backup your device...
You can backup your IPhone, IPod, and IPad on iTunes or ICloud easily

Force Restart Device
The first thing you should do is restart your device. To do this, double tap the Home button and swipe up on any app that has the problem. Now restart your device by holding down the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button until you see the Apple logo.
If its IOS problem, you can also solve the problem by restart your device by holding down the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button until you see the Apple logo. 
I have seen many people complain about facing difficulty while updating apps/IOS but were able to update their device by just moving to where there is a stronger network/WIFI.

Another good method that solves the problem of IPhone, IPad, IPod not updating is the use of the “Reset” option.
How to Reset Your Device
  • ·        Go to Settings
  • ·        Click General
  • ·        Move to reset
  • ·        Click Reset settings
  • ·        Finally, select reset all settings

Recovery Mode
Recovery Mode may be needed to restore your device if your iOS device is not updating.
Recovery Mode Steps:
Ensure you are using the latest iTunes version

Make sure your device is connected to the computer before opening iTunes  if iTunes is already opened, close before connecting

If you don’t have a personal computer borrow from friend or relative
After connecting your device, force restart it (while it's connected). If you don’t know how to force restart, follow the below steps:
  1.           On IPhone 8 or newer device, press and release the volume UP button within 2    seconds. Then press and release the DOWN button the same way you did for the volume UP button. Finally, hold the side button until you see the recovery mode screen.
  2.        On IPhone 7 or IPhone 7 plus, press and hold side and volume down button together simultaneously. Don’t release the buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.
  3.       On IPhone 6 or lower versions, iPad, iPod touch, hold the home and top/side button together simultaneously, until the recovery-mode screen shows up.

Now you will definitely see the Restore or Update option, simply click the Update option. Now iTunes will attempt to reinstall IOS without erasing any of your files. Wait patiently till the Download/Installation finishes. IF the download takes over 15 minutes to complete and device exits recovery mode, simply let the download complete and repeat the above step again.

After the completion of download/restore simply set up your device. Your device should now be able to update without any problem.

The solution Provided above works effectively on IPhone 4, IPhone 4s, IPhone 5, IPhone 5s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPad, iPad Mini, iPad Air and iPad Pro.
