I am still on my original iPhone SE... I have like 1gb left of space, base model, cant even do updates due to pack of space. I have to delete my photos and messages out of text to update lol.
The SE is an awesome phone. But please tell me your running iOS 14.5.1

Well, It took all day in starts and stops. At the end. there is a web address one can go to for info on what the download covers.
???? I’ve never noticed it. Do you have it?

I used the USB method and updated my GT500, Explorer ST and wife's Aviator with no problem. Each one took about a half hour. If you have a quality USB 3.0 or 3.1 drive that's at least 8GB and follow the instructions on the Ford website it should work.

^^ agreed. My update went well and it was quite fast with the USB. My car never shut off. If you have a USB and a battery tender, this is definitely the way to go.

That answers my question. Guess this is for ‘17 or newer vehicles. 🥲
I have a 15 and it says I have an update. Why would it not work on your 16?

2015's have Sync 2 with MyFord Touch. 2016's went to Sync 3, a totally different system. Then there are version upgrades to Sync 3, versions 3.0, 3.1 , etc. At one point (I forget when) the older versions were not updatable because of a hardware change. The last update to Sync 2 was in 2018. They are officially dead and buried.

Evidently it is a one time splash screen that is a part of the download. It came up as part f the page telling one that the download is complete. Oce that page is closed, it is gone forever. Need someone doing the download to capture it.

Thank you for this thread. Got mine updated over the weekend.

Tried using the update over wifi and the download was taking forever, even though I have strong wifi mesh throughout the house and garage. Ended up doing the USB drive upgrade, which I am more familiar with anyway on our other Fords. USB upgrade went flawlessly, and completed in around 15 minutes.

The wifi is nice to at least check for updates, and see if you have anything pending.

Thanks again to everyone for their input and feedback.

yep, I usually get a new battery every 2 years too, but its been through the wash a few times, I took To apple few months ago and they refused it for the first time saying "there is water damage" well that is bs. the same damage, was there from before the last battery change, and their tech said we won't work on it.

they had the phone apart.. just refused to swap batteries. I would change the battery myself, but iPhone 13 mini is supposed to be finger print ID, if it is, I will be upgrading to that.

works great though.
