This is the second part of our how-to-fix instruction for iOS 7 update problems. Hopefully you will find a solution to your particular situation and solve it as quickly as possible.
If iTunes CrashesThe new iOS 7 requires the latest version of iTunes. If you have iTunes lower than 11.1 you should install the update on your computer. iTunes often crashes when users keep using an old release and try to get a newer operating system for their iDevice.
