    I've just finished downloading and installing iOS10 on my iPhone SE, and it appears to have failed. It re-booted into recovery mode. Did I brick it?

    No bricked as being not usable. It's either a bad load or some other error. We are trying to pin point what the issue is, but it will not be BRICKED.

    I updated my 5s OTA at 1100 PT without a problem. Now, at 1355 PT I'll try an iPad.

    Is it better to do it OTA or via iTunes. Should I do it when I get off work @7 Central or does it matter if I wait a few more days or not

    I haven't updated thru iTunes for a long time. OTA works fine for me.

    My belief is OTA, smaller file, and less chance of failure. It's what I have been doing for a long time now.

    Apple put out a statement saying that a flaw with the initial deployment of iOS 10 today caused the bricked mode, but it has been fixed and OTA updates are ok again.

    Not for me. I can't restore even with iTunes. The initial soft-brick appears to have turned into a hard-brick. Thank goodness I live close to an Apple Store. Regardless, I'm NOT. HAPPY.
