Anyone else having issues updating their iThing to 14.3? I’ve run the update on my iPhone three times now, and it keeps stalling during the Preparing Update phase. I found some posts online about this, and the solution offered is to delete the update and then restart the phone and re-download the update. I’ve done that three times now and still can’t get the update to complete.

Any updates on this?

I’m looking at going to 14.3 with my iPhone 8 because I got an Apple Watch Series 6 for Christmas (yay me!), and one of the functions I’m interested in using requires iOS 14.3...

Two iPhones XS and two iPads updated to 14.3 in this household, no issues.

“Preparing update” took a long time (less than a half-hour, though), but ultimately pulled through.

Sorry. Yeah, after about the fourth delete-and-restart, I just let the thing sit and, after about 30-35 minutes, the progress bar started moving again and the update sailed through with no other drama.

Good to hear. I’m wary of OS updates in general, but my phone is kinda important for a lot of things, so I don’t want to wind up with an expensive brick.

14.4 was a pretty smooth update. No endless hang this time.
