As iDevice owners continue to try downloading iOS 7 over-the-air, more errors are being reported, likely because Apple’s servers are taking a huge hit.

Millions upon millions are trying to download the all-new iOS 7 on iPhones and iPads, and while some users are reporting success, others are having problems installing the update.

Take for instance this error sent in by one of our readers, which states “Software Update is not available at this time. Try again later.”

This user says “the error trickles in right at the end of the software update process, I’m at my third attempt.” Many others are reporting a similar experience.

iOS 7 download & and install issues are a common occurrence on the eve of every major iOS release. My winning advice is to stay put and try installing a bit later.
