    Iphone 7 bricked

    Hi all im sure many are aware of the issue people have been having updating there
    iphone i was one of the many that ended up with a brick for a phone.

    After many hours of searching i come across a video that got my phone working
    again im not sure how many others ended up with a iphone 7 that was unworkable.

    But just thought i would share as it helped me out allot.

    I believe it needs to be mentioned that this isn't a true brick -- it's a soft brick. Folks have been calling anything that makes a phone/tablet/etc. not work a "brick" nowadays. It's like when people say that something is "on the cloud" but what they're actually talking about is a website. I work with people like that.

    Didn't know this was still happening. It initially happened because of corrupt downloads IIRC, and I had thought they had fixed that. Guess not.

    However, FWIW, I have updated a 5, 5S, 6s, and two iPad Air 2s with no issues. I also have updated my 7 Plus from 10 to 10.0.1 and then 10.1 with no issues. I wonder what percentage of people are getting this "soft" brick.

    I believe Apple has fixed it. Some people haven't caught up yet. I also believe this was an issue for non-iPhone 7 users updating to iOS 10 (Non-iPhone 7 users didn't get iOS 10.0.0 on release date, they got iOS 10.0.1). iPhone 7 phones came with iOS 10 pre-installed.
