iOS9 update appears to be updating fine on my iPad Air 1 but my iPhone 6 continues to give me the error, "Software Update Failed" with no explanation of the issue. Anyone have an idea on this?

Thanks in advance.

It's not like the servers aren't getting slammed right about now... I know y'all are anxious... but maybe trying again later might be worthwhile...

Because almost every iOS user on the planet is trying to download it at this time. Be patient, keep trying or go the iTunes update route.

Good point. I was actually hoping that might be the problem. I will take ladyc0524's approach and wait till later.

Same issue here, and I assumed the same slammed servers. ;) I tried 2 different wifi networks



EDIT: 3rd wifi network was the charm!
