iPad Pro and 13.1 no longer updates.

Saturday, September 28th, 2019

I updated my iPad Pro to 13.1 and found I can no longer get updates. Click Software Updates and you get:

Unable to Check for Update – An error occurred while checking for a software update.

Basic troubleshooting has failed:

  • Restart and Force restart
  • Reset Network.
  • Change DNS to google DNS.
  • Checked Apple Services.
  • Saw a note from somebody alleging Apple Care said there was no update for 13.1.1

I would use iTunes. The problem? The new cables don’t work with a Windows Laptop. Ordered a special cable (Amazon Basics). Will Try again once it arrives tomorrow.

*Update – 9/29/19*

This was a case of a magical fix. I ran the update last night and it worked. I am not so sure it was my iPad or my network as I was able to update my iPhone and watch.

Even though the status page was green; I wonder if something was disabled or overloaded? Oh well; cable will arrive today. Next time; I can test the iTunes approach.

At least the battery drain seems to have stopped or lessened…..
