    I treat every major OS upgrade with precision care. I have never had any problems or failed, and the current one was a smooth sail too. As long you took precautions, know what you should do, follow the procedure carefully, and most importantly: NO RUSH, you won't encounter any problems.

    Kamilton Prescription for all X.0 updates.

    1.  Wait and read AI.
    2.  Add 48 hours
    3.  Buy Six Pack
    4.  iTunes back
    5.  Confirm iCloud back up
    6.  Open beer 1
    7.  Commence Update

    Never has failed!  See you Friday

    Not bad. Here's an abbreviated alternate version:

    1. Buy latest iPhone with all the latest software and hardware updates included.
    2. Become zen and one with the universe.


    That is better!  Ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer

    3 devices updated over-the-air without a hitch: iPad Pro, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5.

    Slightly disappointed to find the iPad 3 was no longer included in the update group, but to be honest, it was starting to "run on fumes" ever since iOS 8. On the plus side, iOS 9.3.2 restored a lot of its snappiness and smooth operation back, but the signs were there that another major software upgrade would be a bridge too far...

    All in all, a rather uneventful and seamless upgrade. Apple's software chops are definitely on the up - the product presentation video stream for the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2 did not stutter even once on my Apple TV 4, a first for my setup.

    folks keep using the word bricked and the device almost never is. if you can do an update or a restore and that works, its not bricked. and the issue came up during the first 3 hours the software was out so it was probably just a server overload issue. too many folks trying to OTA update and the verifications were timing out. annoying but generally no big deal

    The only way to do that on a mobile device is by connecting to a computer and backing up via iTunes.
    iCloud backups are a full backup. heck they are fuller than most folks iTunes ones cause health data is only saved in an iTunes backup if you remember to encrypt, and most folks don't.

    I had no problem updating but regret that I did. This thing has turned into a feature bloated monster. Simplicity is out the window.  In fact I'm so pissed off I cancelled my iPhone 7 order

    iOS10 update on 6+ through iTunes went smoothly. Finished downloading WatchOS3 and preparing to update. tvOS10 is next :)

    It has already been said, but people really need to learn the definition for "bricked".

    Show us on the doll where iOS 10 touched you.

    3 iPhones, 4 iPads and 1 AppleTV all went smoothly OTA.  I use my older devices as test boxes for the first downloads and trials.    I'm impressed at how fast my Phone 5 now feels. Nice update for all my devices.  Also love the new iWork collaboration.
