    I should have known better - I'm an enterprise sys admin.

    With full backup, cleanup, and restart it still failed. Two 9.3.5 download attempts have failed, third going slower. I need a polite but strong way to say not happy.

    My iPad Air 2 updated perfectly, but my iPhone 6s Plus didn't. I have it back to normal after connecting it to my MacBook.

    Backed mine up before install and was running 9.3.5 for awhile... and...bricked! Restored phone and works fine. I will wait awhile until they figure out what the problem is with OTA updates. I did try again after reinstall, but received a message saying they " unable to connect to iTunes"?

    Again....


    A bricked phone means one thing: your phone won't turn on in any way, shape or form, and there's nothing you can do to fix it. It is, for all intents and purposes, as useful as a brick. A phone stuck in a boot loop is not bricked, nor is a phone that boots straight into recovery mode
    you can play your silly little word games all you want, but if I can't use it...IT'S A F'IN BRICK!

    Hmm maybe the server are getting slammed????
    Very cute, but since the other user already downloaded and installed iOS 9.5.3 and then 10 I could chalk it up to old mac, old itunes version, bad connection, multiple computers and devices on my internet, xfinity having a slowdown....soooooooooo i'm not sure what the problem is.

    After restore to 9.3.5 and the first error, I tried again with my iPhone 6S Plus and it worked great.

    I hope so, stressed with wife out of town, running the kids all over, teaching a class tonight and having to use a Jabra/VOIP on my work computer to compensate. Just not the best time for Apple to start trying to be more like Samsung.

    Had the same issue with my 6s and iPad Pro 9.7". Ran update through iTunes, both are back up and running. Interesting though that iTunes updates to 10.0.1. I'm wondering if OTA is a 10.0 and is the issue.

    From Apple:
    "We experienced a brief issue with the software update process, affecting a small number of users during the first hour of availability. The problem was quickly resolved and we apologize to those customers. Anyone who was affected should connect to iTunes to complete the update or contact AppleCare for help.

    Looking on 9to5Mac.com, Apple released a statement that said the supposed issues causing the bricking has been fixed.

    If they really fixed it, I dunno.

    My iPhone 6S+ is now a brick...thanks! Probably spend the rest of the afternoon trying to get it back. What a POS!
    Bricked = phone being dead, unable to use and/or turn on.. What you have is a failed iOS installation, not a brick. Your phone can and most likely will recover with a drop of time / effort. Bricked = Need a new phone, or you now have a fancy paperweight.

    I dont think its the truth that is seen as aggressive, its the fact that as we all well know, until this actually happens to you, you dont need someone playing semantics with words. What did the post actually solve?

    This again, as the last post explaining the proper terminology, is missing the complete point of this thread.
