Error Installing iOS 15? It will most likely be that Apple’s servers are currently melting due to the amount of iOS 15 updates it’s trying to push and handle simultaneously. It doesn’t sound like much, but when you’re one of the biggest tech giants in the world, rolling out updates is kind of a big deal.
Sometimes, your iPhone will be stuck in an eternal loop of failure due to an update failing part-way through. This can be fixed by restarting your device, but sometimes it doesn’t, and that’s a big issue.
Don’t sweat it, here are some easy-to-follow steps to get your iPhone updated to iOS 15. We would recommend following these steps in order, but if you’re 100% certain you know what the error installing iOS 15 is, go for it.
Restart your iPhone, this will flush out any temporary memory files clogging up your handset. Turn it back on, wait ten minutes for the update to successfully push to your device then go to Settings > General > Software Update. This normally fixes the error installing iOS 15 issues, but if it doesn’t see the next step.
We’re being completely serious. Big iOS launches can cripple Apple’s servers for a day or two, making it tough to get an iOS 15 download to start, never mind complete. Failing this, perform the next step.
Remember when we had to do this with every update for every device? Great times. But seriously, plug in your iPhone to a USB port on a PC and Mac, then open up iTunes or Finder respectively and hit that lovely update button against your iPhone.
This is the last option to updating your iPhone. Before starting, disable ‘Find my iPhone’ and backup and files, contacts, and other data you’ll need to reinstate. Next, download the .IPSW file that corresponds to your iPhone model below and open it on said iPhone to install the update. For instructions on clean installs via PC/Mac, read on.
Follow the bullet points below to clean install iOS 15 onto your iPhone. Again, make sure to turn off ‘Find my iPhone’ and backup your device before continuing:
