iPhone 14 Stuck Updating iOS? Here’s The Real Fix


Is your iPhone 14 Stuck updating iOS? We certainly feel your pain. There are a number of things you can try out if your iPhone 14 is stuck during iOS update, none of which require any technical knowledge whatsoever. Each solution only takes a few minutes to complete, so you’ll be able to go through these tips in no time.

Note: information in this article apply to iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

We’ve listed a few of the most common fixes below, which should hopefully solve the problem if your iPhone 14 gets stuck updating iOS 16. Let’s get started.

Reset your internet

One of the quickest fixes to try when your iPhone 14 gets stuck updating iOS is a network reset. Your iPhone will automatically halt an update if you lose internet connectivity while it is in progress. The same thing will happen if your internet connection is spotty or unstable. You can be sure that your internet is the issue if there’s a grayed-out “Resume Download” option on the update screen.

There are a few methods you can try to reset your internet

  • The trusted ole device reboot — restarting your iPhone will refresh your internet connection. Go to Settings > General > Shut Down.
  • If you’re using Cellular data, try turning Airplane mode on and off — this will force your iPhone to reconnect to network servers and hopefully restore your internet. Go to Settings > AirPlane Mode.
  • If you’re on a Wi-Fi connection, turn your device’s Wi-Fi on and off to reset it. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi.
  • Restart the router. This is a simple fix that’s known to solve many tech-related problems. To reboot the router: unplug all the cords from the device and then wait a few minutes. After you plug it back in, wait a minute or two for the device to set up.

Once your router is back up and running, check to see if this solved your problem. If it didn’t, it’s time to move on to the next step.

Reset network settings

If none of these fixes solve the problem, there’s one last resort: do a hard reset of all your iPhone’s network settings. To do this, open Settings > General > Transfer or Reset iPhone > Reset and select Reset Network Settings. This will reset your cellular, Wi-Fi, and VPN settings (if you use one), so you may have to re-enter some credentials after it’s done, but it should restore your internet and get things moving again. Typically, your update would resume when you reconnect to the internet, but that’s not always the case — you may have to restart the process from scratch.
