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…..
