Hi Yevhen_97. Downloading the latest update for your phone is important. When it comes to updating your software here's why it may be interrupted during download.


Here's what to check on your phone so that you can get the latest device software including the latest features and device protection options:

  • Memory capacity. Each update requires a certain amount of data.
    • You may have to remove apps or data to increase your device’s available memory.
    • You can back up your data before deleting it.
  • Network connections. Software updates are done over Wi-Fi, so they don't affect your data use. Make sure you’re:
    • Located in the U.S. and on our wireless network.
    • Able to connect to a strong Wi-Fi signal.
      • After choosing your device's make and model choose Connectivity followed by Wi-Fi and follow the steps that are presented.
  • Battery strength.
    • Make sure your device has at least 80% battery power.
    • Connect the device to a charger before doing the software update.

You'll find these details and more under Fix failed updates at Update your phone or device software. Also, make sure you're subscribed to a cellular network. Otherwise, you won't be able to update your phone.


Let us know how this goes so that we can get you a definite resolution to your experience. If possible, we may need to invite you into a Direct Message to look into your account to find a solution.
