Short of stor­age? An over-the-air up­date may fail be­cause the process needs more space to store the up­date. One so­lu­tion is to use the lat­est ver­sion of iTunes on your Mac: open it, con­nect your de­vice us­ing its ca­ble, click the de­vice icon near the top left of iTunes and click Check for Up­date.

Once you’re on iOS 11, you can avoid this sit­u­a­tion in fu­ture. Go to Set­tings > Gen­eral > [De­vice] Stor­age. Ac­cept the rec­om­men­da­tion to off­load apps if you are okay with iOS delet­ing apps when it needs space. To get one back, tap its Home screen icon. Or, you can man­u­ally off­load an app: tap its name, then Off­load App.

The abil­ity to off­load apps (but re­tain their data) is new in iOS 11. It can be au­to­matic or man­ual.
