iPhone owners attempting to install the latest software update from Apple Thursday afternoon say that the process repeatedly fails. The reports cropped up on Apple's own support forums.

A user with the handle evan127 wrote Thursday, "So, this is the seventh time I've tried to restore. I keep getting error 9. I've tried both usb ports and another cable. Now I am trying a new user account. What else can I do?...I get 3/4 of the way through the firmware update and it gives me an error."

Other users reported similar experiences. "I'm having the same problem everyone else is reporting with the upgrade timing out 2/3 of the way through," wrote user stteve. "I've tried all the things recommended on the Apple site, from deleting software, trying another computer, etc."
