We know that upgrading from an older iOS version can be problematic for some users. What should be done is a fresh install of iOS 14. You also need the latest version of iTunes if you’re using a PC, and a macoS Catalina or above if you’re on a Mac. Follow these steps:

3 Connect the iPhone to a Mac or PC. iTunes will launch itself at this step. Open it manually if it doesn’t.
4 Choose your device from the iTunes interface. This will open the contents of the device will letting you access the latest features. Clicking the Finder icon and choosing the device in the sidebar should work for Mac users.
5 Do a manual restore rather than a default one. Hold the Shift key on Windows or Alt key on Mac, and click the “Restore iPhone” button. Now browse and choose the relevant IPSW file when you see the prompt.
