Earlier this week, Apple launched its new iOS 9 operating system.
It's a sleek, sexy new piece of software, with a lovely font and some great new features. The only problem is, it causes a not insignificant number of older iPhone, iPod and iPads to lock up. Permanently.
The most common issue (there are a few) sees users arrive at the screen which reads "Slide to Upgrade" - at which point the device ceases to do anything, neither upgrading nor turning off.
Apple has now come up with a solution to the problem... sort of.
So here's what we recommend doing before downloading the new iOS 9:
- Back up your iPhone/iPod/iPad to your computer
- Download the new iOS 9 via a cable connection to your iTunes
- Collect your loved ones and family together, and pray for your device
- If it doesn't work, buy an Android phone. Maybe even a Windows model.
Or you could just wait four to eight weeks for iOS 9.1.
