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.
