How to Fix unable to check for update iOS 16.0.2 Not showing up
The likely issue with your iPhone showing unable to check for update is that you’re already on iOS 16.1 beta version with beta profile active on your device, Even by removing the iOS 16 beta profile and rebooting your device the error will still persist because Apple didn’t allow updating to an inferior version i.e you can only keep on with the existing beta version until the public release or downgrade then update to most recent available public version software. To do that;
- Navigate to your Settings >> General >> About to confirm if your active iOS version is superior to iOS 16.0.2.
- Now remove your iOS 16 beta profile by navigating to Settings >> General >> VPN & Device Management tap on the profile, click on Remove profile and reboot your iPhone.
Then proceed with the downgrading process by having your iPhone, PC and USB to Lightning cable in place. Note: make sure you’re having iCloud backup to avoid starting your iPhone afresh.
- Connect your iPhone with your PC (mac or Window) using the USB to Lightning cable.
- Force your iPhone into Recovery Mode by force restarting it; quickly click and release Volume Up, followed by Volume Down and press & hold the Side Button until you see the cable icon pointed to PC on your iPhone screen.
- Launch your Finder software on Mac and iTunes in case of Windows, which will confirm your iPhone connection with your PC.
- Navigate and select your iPhone from the sidebar or below the menu bar then hold Option and tap on Restore iPhone or Shift if you’re on Window, then click on Restore iPhone.
- Click Restore and Update; which will restore your iPhone to factory settings (you can restore your backup data if you have any) and update your iPhone automatically to any available public version software “iOS 16 version”.
Now you can restore your backup data if you have any either from your iCloud or Computer. I believe you’ve been able to troubleshoot Unable to Check for Update and the iOS 16.0.2 update page not showing up. Having a more appealing fix, let us know in the comment section.
