Why Is iOS 16 Update Not Available on my iPhone in UK?
Sometimes, it may happen that your iPhone doesn’t show the latest update.
In such case, I would recommend you to restart your iPhone and then repeat the process, i.e., Settings => General => Software Update.
It may also happen that some iPhones will show the iOS 16 update after a few hours.
Important: Make sure you have an iPhone 8 or newer model, as these iPhones are compatible with the iOS 16 update.
