    • Hello!
      Please try above solutions and find out which one works for you.
      1) One possible solution is to try to update using iTunes.
      2) Also, if you have a jailbroken iOS Device, you should first un-jailbreak your device and then try to update OTA (Over-The-Air).
      3) Also, if you don’t have a factory unlocked device and are using an SIM Chip to unlock your device, this can be the issue. SIM Chip doesn’t allow you to update OTA or iTunes. If you update to iOS 9, you have to buy a new version of your Chip.
      Thank You!
