It’s highly recommended to backup important data, in case you need it later. Above you can find three methods to restore i Phone without updating, no matter if you have a newer or older device, or if you have jailbroken it, in order to release the operating system’s full potential.
I have a 5S that is failing to update to i OS 10 (can't remember which version but I think 2.0) and it keeps saying that it isn't connected to the internet (but it is connected to a good wi-fi). The latest i OS is 11.0.3, and the i Phone 5s is eligible for that software, so that is the only update you can do.
The message keeps coming when it says it's verifying the update. If you are trying to install an i OS that had been downloaded to your phone over-the-air(OTA), you are going to have to delete it and download the latest. If that does not seem to work, you can connect the phone to the computer and the latest version of i Tunes and update that way.
