The release of iOS 7 has millions of people around the world scrambling to get their hands on the latest software for their iPhone. Unfortunately, some of us are running into problems.
First, I got a “Software Update Unavailable” error. I kept trying but then it became a “Software Update Failed” message. I almost started crying when reading “An error occurred downloading iOS 7.0″.
Luckily, I have a buddy who works for Apple. I called him and he told me the trick of how to fix this issue. Follow these steps and your problems will be solved:
1. Restart your device.
2. Disable your Wi-Fi.
3. Turn off your device and keep it off for 5 minutes.
4. Turn your device back on and enable Wi-Fi.
5. Try the download again.
It sounds simple but it has worked 100% of the time for the people I’ve told about it. You should have that iOS 7 downloaded in no time! Please share this fix on Facebook or tweet about it on Twitter to help others struggling with this problem.
