Apple’s iOS 10 release is dubbed as the “biggest iOS release ever” although it got off with a rough start on Tuesday. After moments of iOS 10 release, the social media was filled with complaints of “iOS 10 bricking their iOS device” from iPhone and iPad Pro users who attempted to install the upgrade via OTA.

The term “bricking” is used to describe devices that are rendered unusable due to a software or hardware fault. If your iPhone or iPad is “bricked” or stuck with the Apple logo, you can fix it by following the steps described later in this post. You’ll need a computer, with iTunes installed on it and a cable to fix the issue. More on this later. Let’s first see how to get iOS 10 update on your iPhone, or iPad.

Windows 10 Anniversary Update is releasing today, Tuesday, August 2, 2016 to users. Anniversary Update is the second major update to Windows 10 after Threshold 2 (November Update). Windows 10 Anniversary Update promises tons of new features, performance improvements, etc. Here’s everything you need to know about the Windows 10 Anniversary Update before you install the update.

When Windows 10 was first released, Microsoft made it available as free upgrade for existing Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users. At first, users only had the option to upgrade their existing Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 operating system to Windows 10. With the release of Windows 10 Threshold 2 (Build 1511), Microsoft changed this cumbersome upgrade process. Threshold 2 allowed users use their existing genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 product key to clean install and activate Windows 10. But all this is going to change with the expiration of the Windows 10 Free Upgrade offer program on July 29, 2016.

Let’s see one by one, what to expect once the free upgrade offer expires. What are your options available? Will you be able to activate Windows 10 using Windows 7 or Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 product key after July 29, 2016? How can you reinstall Windows 10 and activate it?

The end of Windows 10 Free Upgrade offer is right around the corner. Microsoft is officially closing down the Windows 10 Free Upgrade offer on July 29, 2016. You can also take a look at the official countdown here. July 29, 2016 will also mark the first anniversary of Windows 10 release. Wondering what will happen after the Windows 10 Free Upgrade offer ends? Obviously, you will not be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free anymore but what else will happen? What will be the cost of Windows 10 after the free upgrade offer ends? Will Microsoft release upgrade versions of Windows 10 for purchase?

Microsoft is adding an Activation Troubleshooter to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The new Activation Troubleshooter will help users resolve the common issues related to Windows 10 activation. Microsoft is making it easier for users to activate Windows 10 after hardware upgrade.

At present, when you activate Windows 10, Microsoft links the activation to the hardware of the computer. This way, if you reinstall Windows 10 it will automatically activate again by matching the hardware signature. Windows 10 fails to activate if you make some changes to the hardware and Microsoft can no longer recognize the device.

Apple introduced support for third-party keyboards on iPhone and iPad since iOS 8. Since then many popular keyboards were ported to the iOS platform. Third-party keyboards are keyboards that generally offers features that are not offered by the stock iOS keyboard by Apple. For example some supports slide to type, animated GIF images, and more. Google recently foraged into the niche and launched their own keyboard, Gboard for iOS.
