Another iOS release, another slew of devices experiencing temporary death. But after a rash of Twitter users reported that the iOS 10 update bricked their iPhones and iPads, Apple says it’s fixed the problem.
“We experienced a brief issue with the software update process, affecting a small number of users during the first hour of availability,” Apple said in an emailed statement. “The problem was quickly resolved and we apologize to those customers.
