So I did what I free up my space uninstalled some apps and it was fixed it starts preparing the update However, might there be other issues also responsible for not updating which I mentioned below

First Check Your Connection

In most cases, the issue persists due to your Wi-Fi connection not working properly or being unable to send the request to the server so it’s obvious it’s still showing stuck to fix this you can try is to

Restart your Router: if you restart your router most likely it will resolve many problems if this effect your updating process it still shows the same thing what next you can do

Change the WIFI Network: I Know that Restarting the Router not working for you so what next you can do to change your WIFI network will help to rid out the situation

Try Uninstall Apps: Apps usually kept size than usual which you require to uninstall that are no longer in use or something that consumes most of your storage

Else you can also do is to remove big files that consume more storage like Photos and videos especially if you are using iPhone like iPhone XR or iPhone 11,12 with 64GB

Try to delete the update file

I know that you are still unable to update but you have downloaded the update file what you can do is try to delete the update and try to do it again it will start downloading the update again but make sure you connected to the internet

Try to Restart your iPhone

The next thing you can do is to try to restart your iPhone and again request for the update I will show up or you can update using your computer
