I was having a lot of trouble installing iOS 9.3 on an iPad Air and after a bit of searching around I was advised to delete the update file and try to reinstall.

Having done this, I no longer have the option to try again. When I check for a software update I am notified that I am 'up to date' with 9.2.1

How do I get back the option to upgrade to 9.3?

Any help is much appreciated.

    Have you restarted your phone yet? – Tyson Mar 26 '16 at 13:14
  • It's an iPad I'm doing it on, but yeah, I've restarted it, performed a hard reset, everything. I'm sure Apple will release another update for iOS 9.3 fairy soon, so hopefully a new file will be created. I just wondered if there was a way to get back the one I just deleted. If not, I'll just carry on using 9.2.1 until then. – user177019 Mar 26 '16 at 16:30
  • Apple fixed the problem today. Try again. – Olathe Mar 29 '16 at 3:27

Apple yanked iOS 9.3 for almost all devices which means you can't install it.
