Issue/Introduction

Users are unable to upgrade Apple iOS via iTunes. They can download the upgrade package but upgrade fails and iTunes has an error message.

This issue still occurs even if you bypass authentication for the  iTunes/11.1 user agent.

To resolve the issue, bypass authentication for User-Agent: InetURL/1.0.

In the Visual Policy Manager, create a Request Header Object in the Web Authentication Layer as shown below:
