Types of iOS updates
1. For everyone… These are familiar iOS updates for regular iOS users.
2. For registered developers… These updates can be installed by those users whose iPhone or iPad is associated with an Apple ID of a registered developer, but if desired, this software can be installed by anyone.
The developer updates are the very first and most raw.
3. For participants in the Beta Testing Program… Anyone can get these updates, but you must register with the Apple Beta Program. We described how to do this here.
Let’s take a look at the most common cases in which iOS updates may be missing from Settings.

Top Reasons Why iOS Updates Don’t Come (Message: Latest Software Installed)
1. The user will see this message if the device does not already support new updates. Check if your iPhone or iPad really supports the latest iOS update. This can be done, for example, on this page.
2. Inscription Latest software installed can be confusing if a public version of iOS (for everyone) is installed on the iPhone or iPad and a user who is neither a registered developer nor a contributor Beta testing programs, saw the news about the release of the beta version of the firmware.
3.On the other hand, this message may be indicated if a beta version of the firmware is installed on the iOS device. For example, iPhone 14 beta is installed and at that time the final version of iOS 14 was released for everyone. In most cases, these two firmwares (the last beta and the final release) are identical, therefore, in the section Software Update the inscription appears Latest software installed…
4. In addition, the inscription Latest software installed may indicate that the current update is not yet available for your region. Please try again later.
