With large number of users trying to get their hand on iOS 9, failed software update errors are becoming common. Avoiding this error is simple enough though. Instead of updating your device over the air, connect your device to iTunes and update it via iTunes. This method is working for users as they are confirming the same. Make sure your iTunes is updated to latest version before proceeding.
You can also download iOS 9 IPSW and update your device via iTunes’ Restore button. You can read more about upgrading to iOS 9 using IPSW.
Note for jailbreakers: If you have jailbreak your device on any iOS version, do not attempt to upgrade to iOS 9. Upgrading to iOS 9 will make you lose your jailbreak and there is no way you can get back to previous iOS version. Wait till legitimate updates of iOS 9 release.
