After releasing iOS 10 earlier today, some users are reporting ‘bricked’ devices after attempting to update to the new operating system. Most of the issues seem to come from over-the-air (OTA) updates, meaning a device that attempts to download and install the update without plugging it in — something Apple used to require.

The issues seem fairly widespread. The OTA update begins and leaves users staring at a ‘Connect to iTunes’ screen that forces a complete firmware re-install. If you forego the wiping and re-installation of iOS from your iPhone or iPad, you’re left with a bricked and completely useless device.


It goes without saying, don't be the first on your block to download an OS update - regardless of platform. This is why.

Supposedly they've fixed it. I backed up my phone before upgrading. Everything is fine for me.

Also had no problem; updated right as people were reporting issues since I have no fear.
The current download (that was posted yesterday) is version 10.0.1 which apparently fixed those early bricking problems.

It updated on my iPhone 6s Plus last night and I have the "No Service" problem again. It seems to show up every time it does any system update but clears up after a few hours it seems. Today it showed service a few times but then goes back to "No Service" again after a few minutes. Been doing it after every system upgrade and sometimes randomly here and there.

Do you have T-Mobile? Looks like they did a botched carrier update.

Cellcom, actually. Turns out after stopping at the store and asking about the phone, and having them tell me to wipe and reset my phone and spending a few hours dealing with that last night, the phone is perfectly fine, it's a bad SIM chip. I swapped the chips in mine and my girlfriends phone and the problem switched phones with the cards. So now i have to go in again at lunch and get a new SIM. My phone has sporadically had service but usually for only a few seconds at a time.
