I have been trying countless times to get my iphone to update but it just keeps saying its up to date is there a special procedure or something i should be trying?
That is the latest for an iPhone 4. iOS 6.1.4 is only for the iPhone 5.
iOS 7 will not be available to the public until this Fall.
Do nothing. There is no higher version update available for your iPhone at this time.
