Part 1: What to do when iPhone says "Unable to check for update"

Method 1: Close and reopen Settings. On an iPhone 8 or earlier, swipe the Settings app off the top of the screen. On the iPhone X, press and hold the Settings window until a small red minus button appears. Either tap that button or swipe Settings up and off the screen.
Method 2: Restart your iPhone.
Method 3: Perform a hard reset.
For iPhone 8 and X, quickly press and release the volume up button, then the volume down button, then press and hold the side button until the Apple logo appears.
For iPhone 7: Press and hold the power button and the volume down button simultaneously until the screen turns off and the Apple logo flashes onto the screen.
For iPhone SE and earlier: Simultaneously press and hold the Home button and the power button until the Apple logo comes onto the screen.
Method 4: Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi or Cellular data. Go to Settings, then Wi-Fi and make sure the switch next to Wi-Fi is turned on and that there's blue check mark next to your Wi-Fi network.
Method 5: Check Apple Servers. Take a look at Apple's System Status page and make sure you see lots of green circles — that means Apple's servers are working properly. If you see lots of yellow or red icons, there are issues with Apple's servers and you may not be able to download the latest iOS update.
