iOS 10 reportedly bricking iPhones & iPads – How to fix them back to normal



Apple released the final build of the iOS 10 software update for the eligible iPhones, iPads & iPods yesterday. Apparently, this is the best version of the software that the company has developed. But as of today, various users have reported about their devices getting bricked after the update. Well, technica,ly it is not a complete brick, that you would need to take it back to Apple store to get it fixed. It can be fixed manually and Apple has also addressed this issue. The company released an official statement stating that they have already fixed the issue.

If you are trying to install it now, you should be safe, but if you already installed and if you device is now bricked then here’s a quick fix which you can try so that it gets back to being normal –

  1. Connect your iOS device to a Mac or a PC and open iTunes.
  2. Now you have to force restart your device and put it in recovery mode. To do that, press and hold the sleep & home button until you see the recovery mode screen.
  3. Once done, you should be seeing a prompt in the iTunes which wil ask if you want to update or restore your iOS device.
  4. Here, select update to continue with the upgrade process.
  5. Setup should be done in couple of minutes and if it takes more than 15  minutes, then repeate the first 3 steps of this process.
  6. Once the installation is complete, you can proceed with setting up your device.

By this time, you should be good to go. If this didn’t work for you, then sadly the optin left for you is to reach out to an Apple Store and get it fixed by AppleCare. This is quite unusual when it comes to any software update from Apple. So if you haven’t installed the update yet, then it will be a wise option to hold off for sometime until things settle down a bit. Stay tuned for more details on this.
