IOS software versions are usually deployed via OTA (over-the-air). When Apple releases a new update for some devices, your carrier issues an update notification and some quick notes about new features, bug fixes, system requirements, and more. If you see this update notification on your device, you can update at any time. This is by far the fastest way to update mobile devices. Before updating, check and make sure your device is connected to Wi-Fi and that the Internet connection must be stable.
Before troubleshooting, check the status of the current memory of your iPad Pro. If necessary, free up space by removing all unwanted applications and files. If memory space is not a problem, check your Internet connection. To do this, you can open a browser application and then access different websites to see if they are all loading correctly. Or you can try using online applications and services and see if they all work too. If this is not the case, you must resolve the Internet problems yourself on your iPad. Otherwise, eliminate the software-related factors with these later methods.
Solution 1: Restart your iPad (soft reset).
Like an iPhone, the iPad Pro also succumbs to random issues that are also resolved by a warm reset or a reboot on the device. If you have not done so, follow these steps:
- Press the side / power button and one of the volume buttons simultaneously for a few seconds.
- Release the buttons when the Slide to Power Off command appears, and then slide the off slider to the right.
- After 30 seconds, press and hold the On / Off button until the unit restarts.
Wait for the phone to restart and reconnect to Wi-Fi. Once connected, return to your iPad settings and try downloading the update again.
Solution 2: Restart your wireless router/modem.
Network connectivity issues, from slow to intermittent Internet access, are usually the primary reason for the failure to install OTA updates. If your device has an unstable network connection, it will not be able to establish a secure connection with the update server. As a result, the update process is interrupted. A simple reboot on the wireless router or modem typically resolves these random symptoms of Wi-Fi. If you can now access your wireless router or modem, follow these steps to give the network equipment a quick restart. or a power cycle:
- Find the ON / OFF switch or Power switch and press it until the power turns off.
- When the router is off, unplug its AC adapter from the power source and leave it unplugged for about 1 minute.
- After the time has elapsed, reconnect it to the power source, and then turn it on.
Wait until the Wi-Fi network has established a stable Wi-Fi signal, then reconnect your iPad Pro to the Internet when you're ready. As soon as it comes online, try updating your iPad again.
Solution 3: Reset network settings on your iPad Pro.
Network connectivity issues related to invalid settings or server errors on the device are often resolved by resetting network settings. This will erase all your current network configurations, including registered Wi-Fi networks, Bluetooth connections, APNs, and other relevant information. Any errors caused by an invalid network configuration will also be eliminated. If you want to try, here's how:
- In your home screen, tap Settings.
- Select General.
- Scroll to, and then press Reset.
- Select the Reset Network Settings option.
- If prompted, enter your authentication code, and then follow the on-screen instructions to confirm resetting the network settings.
Your iPad will reboot automatically when the reset is complete and the default network settings and values are loaded. Reconnect to your Wi-Fi network and once your iPad is connected, go back to the Settings-> General-> Software Update menu, and then try downloading and installing the update again.
Solution 4: Redownload the update on your iPad Pro.
If you have already tried to download the update several times, it is possible that some segments of the update have already been saved to your device. If this segment has been corrupted, it is probably the cause of the problem. To exclude this possibility, delete or delete the update for your iPad storage, and then download it again by following these steps:
- Press Settings from the Home screen.
- Select General.
- Tap iPad Storage.
- Find the iOS update in the list of applications to fill.
- Then press to select the iOS update.
- Press the option to delete the update.
Wait for the update to be completely removed and when it is finished, go back to Settings-> General-> Software Update and download the latest iOS update available for your iPad Pro. Simply follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the updates successfully on your device.
