    You are using the cable and not wifi? You have to cable or dock the device for IOS upgrades.

    if you want to update OTA using the software update on the iphone, you need to be on a WIFI connection.

    connect your iphone to itunes using the USB cable.
    click on "update", of course you will need an internet connection on your iMac.
