The iOS 10 Update Could Ruin Your Phone

Nice Move

iPhone’s iOS 10 is acting like that girl everyone loves during recruitment until she gets a bid and then starts to ruin your lives. We were super excited to send dirty text messages through invisible ink, send fireworks and scream at people through the new messaging features, but iOS 10 has been fuckin’ up, or “bricking” they call it. Same thing.

What is this “bricking” going on, and what does it do? Well, it’s exactly like it sounds. Your phone turns into a giant brick. You can’t text, can’t call, can’t Insta, you can’t do anything with it. Except throw it. But unlike a brick, your phone will probably break if you throw it.

A spokesperson for Apple told the Daily Mail,

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.

Even though they say bricking will no longer happen, it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you find yourself having a brick and not a phone, you can see steps to recovery on apple support.

Good luck to those brave souls trying to update to the iOS 10 today. May the odds be ever in your favor.
