A list of possible solutions to why is iOS 13.1 update not appearing in settings will be discussed in this post.

Solution 1: Check Apple iPhone Compatibility

Check your iPhone’s compatibility to the new update to iOS 13.1 since not all Apple iPhones supports iOS 13.1. Apple iPhone 6s or later is compatible with iOS 13.1, which means 2014’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus or older models will not be compatible with the new operating software.

Solution 2: Restart Apple iPhone device

A simple reset sometimes can restart your iPhone to refresh it. Doing so help your device to reconnect again to Apple servers to see the option to update to iOS 13.1.

To do this:

  1. Press and Hold the sleep/wake button at the right side of your device. 
  2. When the slider “Slide to power off” appears at the top of the screen, slide it from left to right. It then turns your iPhone off.
  3. Then, after a minute or two, press and hold  the sleep/wake button again until the Apple logo appears.
  4. Release the sleep/wake button and wait for the iPhone start up normally.

Solution 3: Check Network Settings then Reset if Necessary

Ensure that your iPhone is connected to the internet for the Server Update can catch up with the new operating software. Sometimes iPhone users aren’t receiving any notifications on the update because they are not connected to the internet. 

But if iOS 13.1 update is still not showing even if your network is connected, might as well refresh or reset your network connection. To refresh your connection, you can do this by simply turning your device to Airplane Mode ON and Turn it back OFF. If the problem still persists, you may need to reset network settings by doing these steps:

  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Go to General.
  3. Scroll down and tap Reset.
  4. Tap Reset Network Settings.
  5. Enter Passcode to confirm.
