Here are few tips on how you can fix iOS 10 Error 14 on iPhone. It’s only been two days since Apple has introduced its latest software update for all iDevices and there are many users across the globe that have faced with a problem installing iOS 10 due to the infamous Error 14. The iOS 10 software update is compatible with the iPhone 5 or later, the iPad 4th generation or later and the iPod touch 6th generation.
The problem is occurred when users are trying to update their iDevices to the new software while also restoring from the backup. Looks like you can’t do that anymore although it was possible in iOS 9 and 8. In such a iTunes iOS 10 error 14 situation , switching cable or using DFU mode for the update has not helped much.
If you have also encountered with the iTunes iOS 10 error 14 issue, try the following tips to resolve the problem:
- First take a backup and then try doing a clean restore of iOS 9.3.2. Don’t restore your personal backup just yet. Now try doing a clean restore of iOS 10 using the IPSW file you downloaded.
- A user from the same thread has spotted a notice on Apple Support page that says “You must have the latest version of Xcode 8 installed on your Mac before using a Restore image to install iOS or tvOS beta software on a device”. Another use has reported that doing a clean restore via Xcode 8 (using the Option key) seems to fix iOS 10 error 14 on iPhone .
- The Apple support site suggests checking the USB cable you are using. You might try using a different USB cable. Besides, switch to a different USB port on your PC and do not plug into the keyboard. Also, plug into a different computer.
- Apple’s official guidelines for installing beta doesn’t have a notice when it comes to install the beta directly from the device using Configuration Profile. So that might work if you try it at first.
