After a long wait and lots of beta versions, the public release of iOS 10 is finally here. Packed with plenty of new features and lot of bug fixes and performance enhancements, iOS 10 is fully compatible with all of the iOS devices that were compatible with iOS 9. However, good as the new firmware may be, not everyone is finding it plain sailing to update to it.

Every time a new iOS is released, thousands of people try to update at the same time, causing a jam on the Apple Servers. This results in a number of different error, the latest one being that people are getting stuck on the Update Requested screen, leaving them with a device that is, in effect unusable.
Fix Getting Stuck on Update Requested in iOS 10
- If you are stuck on the screen for more than 10 minutes, restart your iOS device and try again
- If that doesn’t solve the problem, restart your device and head over to iTunes to do the update
Causes of Update Requested Error on iOS 10 ?
We never used to have the Update Requested screen but Apple introduced it with iOS 8 in an attempt to try to manage the overload of traffic when a new iOS was released. Instead of allowing everyone to try to download at once, resulting in the servers giving up, the idea was to put users in a queue and download the firmware gradually, rather than everyone at once. In theory, the update should actually download by itself.
If you are trying to download the update on the first couple of days after release, it could be that the servers are overwhelmed and there really isn’t anything you can do, except for try it through iTunes. Because of the sheer numbers of people trying to update at the same time, it is likely that the problem will longer for a few days. The only other option you have is to be a little patient, and wait a few days before you attempt to update.
