If it was truly bricked, it's not like Apple did't take care of you ...
LOL I wish that were true but I've been bit twice over the years with an iOS update that had a bug -- 8.4.1 was the last, so being "released" is not necessarily a sign that an update is safe
It's not just Apple that's guilty of this, Microsoft and Google are guilty of the same thing. Hell, I'd go so far as to say that the whole software industry is guilty of this.something must have happened over there and it's been a constant (too frequent with very short interval) patching, updating and bug fixed. It was not like this before, and I do not like it.
The waterfall model is a sequential (non-iterative) design process, used in software development processes, in which progress is seen as flowing steadily downwards (like a waterfall) through the phases of conception, initiation, analysis, design, construction, testing, production/implementation and maintenance. Despite the development of new software development process models, the waterfall method is still the dominant process model with over a third of software developers still using it.
Agile software development describes a set of principles for software development under which requirements and solutions evolve through the collaborative effort of self-organizing cross-functional teams. It advocates adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, and continuous improvement, and it encourages rapid and flexible response to change. These principles support the definition and continuing evolution of many software development methods.
Read my post above, it's not just Apple that's at fault here. The whole software industry has this issue. It's due to the change in how software is developed.Bug fixes are important part of the S/W release and things happen, but don't you think it is too frequent these days? It feels like some level of disciplining was either loosened up or lost within the organization

But this is a symptom of the change that's going on in the software world, namely the change to a new way of developing software. Write the code, push it out, and hope for the best. If bugs crop up, just tell the users that's we'll fix it in a couple of weeks. It's the "new" way of doing things!I am talking about fixes and patches and such, and its frequencies, which I think obviously changed in recent couple of years. ... Apple has to be commended for relatively speedy bug fixes and patches etc, but I am talking about apparent "sloppiness" of the software dep't within Apple.
But it's been a long way since 8.4.1
