    Dear All

    I have an iPhone 5 running on iOS 7.1.x and I wish to update to iOS8

    when I connect the phone to my Win laptop pc and start the iTunes on my laptop I see an update (to iOS 8) pop up

    I've tried to update at various times of the day / night , at least 3 ,...4 times so far, but the download goes on for approx 5 minutes and then times out

    Is it just the rush at the gate (the apple server) ? or ?

    Is there a work around ?

    I have approx 2.96 gb free on my iPhone 5, 16 GB

    TIA for all help / suggestions

    I'm just throwing this out there, but are you using the latest iTunes version?
