iPhone 13 supports iOS 17, so compatibility is not a problem. However, if you have installed the iOS 17 Beta version but have not deleted it from your device, your iPhone cannot automatically update to the latest version. In this case, you should go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage to remove the iOS Beta file.

Apart from the iOS Beta problem, other issues may hinder the process of updating the iPhone to iOS 17. Go through the following solutions:

  • A strong and stable internet connection is necessary to download and install iOS updates. Ensure your iPhone 13 is connected to a stable Wi-Fi network.
  • Insufficient storage can prevent the update from being installed. Go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage to check your available storage.
  • You can update your iPhone using iTunes or Finder to update the iOS. Connect your iPhone to your computer, open iTunes or Finder, and check for the update there.
  • You can check Apple's System Status page to see if there are any ongoing issues with software updates.
  • If you are still experiencing issues, go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This will reset Wi-Fi networks and passwords, cellular settings, and VPN settings.

Once you decide to update to iOS 17, another piece of advice is to back up your iPhone. This will prevent unexpected data loss due to update failure or other issues.
