Problems updating iphone software

Essentially this means the i Phone or i Pad will be bricked and unusable until it can be restored or successfully updated with i Tunes and a computer.Update: Apple has apparently fixed the problem with the OTA update.But it's worse when these problems tarnish the launch of a brand new, major release that's actually quite good — if users can manage to successfully install it.Apple's statement suggests that whatever issue caused this brief mess has been resolved, but be sure to backup your i OS device before starting today's update.SAN FRANCISCO — Apple issued a security update to prevent attacks by rare, highly expensive spyware that exploits flaws in the mobile operating system for i Phones and i Pads, after security researchers said it was used to target a Middle Eastern dissident's phone.In a statement to USA TODAY Thursday, Apple said it immediately fixed the vulnerability upon learning of it.In a blog post Thursday on its website, Lookout researchers said they found a “sophisticated, targeted, and persistent mobile attack on i OS using three zero-day vulnerabilities we call ‘Trident.’”The flaw lets the hacker break into an i OS device and spy on information gleaned from the victims' apps such as Facebook, Whats App, Face Time, Gmail and Calendar, the post said."As security breaches go, this is fairly serious, considering how fast Apple addressed it," says Andrew Blaich, a staff researcher at Lookout.

Researchers there worked with San Francisco-based mobile security firm Lookout.Because apparently, the i Phone 3G needs to be restored, rather than updated, for things to work properly.We aren't sure why, but what we do know is that in order to get i OS 4 onto your i Phone 3G, you must do a restore (not an upgrade).But the initial bug proved a major headache for people who installed Apple's big update in the middle of their workday or for away from their personal computer.This sort of thing has happened before; just a few months ago, the initial i OS 9.3.2 rollout "bricked" the company's 9.7-inch i Pad Pro, which led Apple to temporarily pull back the update.
