    I did mine OTA and had no issues whatsoever. Have you tried putting it into recovery mode? Maybe a trip to the Apple Store is in your future.

    Same here (iPhone SE, 64 GB). Something's wrong with the update, it would seem.

    Same here. It downloaded seamlessly and I was about to praise Apple for the non-issue of downloading right away. Usually the servers are hung up. I'm at work without access to iTunes and after updating OTA, my 6s is a brick. Cool.

    It's happening for some users... if you have backups and iTunes available you'll be able to recover and restore and update... will just take some time.

    Always back up!

    Always have a plan B doing a OTA update......

    I backed up to iCloud right before I started the download but I still have to wait about 3 hours until I'm home to fix it.

    Probably everyone trying to download it at the same time.

    My iPad Air is fine, but my iPhone 6s 64 is connected to iTunes on life support. Recovery is hopeful.

    Same issue here. The update bricked my 6s. I'll try the iTunes route. Any possible work around?

    Grabbing the update from iTunes worked (after I had to do a restore due to failed OTA update)

    good deal...my download is taking forever, not sure what the delay is.

    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

    Between that and network bottlenecks between the user and Apple...
