    If you were to seek "ipsw downloader" via Google, you will find it quickly........However, it would help if you had access to Wi-Fi, depending on the speed of your cellular data and the type of data plan you have. In regard to why the previous download times-out, I can only assume it is due to slow internet speed or because it detected that you were using cellular data. I really don't know.

    I had the same problem, too w. my 5s. What helped in my case was that straight after the download started I opened the download manager. In the device screen where you also see the update button there is a button w. an arrow pointing down. This button is in the upper right corner. Start the downlaod and push this button. it will show you the progress and more important: the download will finish.
