Fix: Unable to update to iOS 10.2

New iOS system update is out with the new, improved version 10.2. The first impression is good. System stability is improved and some bugs are fixed, but some users have encountered various problems. It’s not a big surprise because we have never encountered a problem-free update.

One of the main issues that concern iOS users is 10.2 failing to update. We browsed trough the forums and found this post from one of the users.


”Hi. Please i need help..I could not download and install new version iOS 10.2 Following image for my case”

This update malfunction can occur because of different reasons and some of them are:

  • Unstable Wi-Fi connection
  • Not enough space for update
  • VPN or proxy blocking iOS updating servers (on Wi-Fi update).
