    So I thought I would do some maintenance on my wife's iPhone 6s. Went to the General tab and checked Software Update. It is or appears to be stuck at the "Downloading..." and not moving. I have tried to shut down the phoine, still no good also tried to reboot the phone...still nothing. Any ideas or just wait. Meantime nothing is happening. THX

    Never mind, I guess my impatience took over. It started moving and now is installing ;)

    Turn the Wifi on/off again on the iPhone. WiFi for whatever reason sometimes doesn't send or receive packets on the iPhone and toggling on/off resets it. Have had this issue since iOS 7 and it has never been fixed even resetting network settings doesn't fix it. Here we are at iOS 11 and it still persists. It's so intermittent that I don't think they'll ever resolve the issue but it happens enough to be an annoyance.
