iOS Update Frozen Fix, Flush It Away!

After Apple launched its latest update of iOS 9.0, there were users raving about how they were impressed by its new features but there were some users rather frustrated by the server faults and performance issues.  However, the one big glitch that was faced by the largest number of users was that after the update the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch would get stuck or freeze on the ‘Slide to Upgrade’ screen. If by any chance you do fall into the category of users troubled by this bug, you must read ahead to solve this problem in no time.

Although at first there was seemingly no way to get through it until Apple itself acknowledged this trouble and provided a solution. To fix the bug it requires you to connect your device to a computer via a cable. This might sound like a dull work but it works pretty well and therefore is worth it. Here’s how it works:

  • Connect your device to a computer and go to the iTunes section.
  • Pick your device from the iTunes window. You may have to force restart in order to reboot the iOS device. To do that, hold the power button and the home button down for a few seconds until the screen flashes the Apple logo.
  • Lastly, all you have to do is restore your files from the backup made before the iOS 9 update. If in case you do not have a recent backup, you should do so at this stage and then restore files from there.

HIGHLIGHT: You won’t be able to fix this problem if you have enabled the “Find My iPhone” feature in your device. This doesn’t allow the restoring process of that data, and hence, can be a huge trouble. To avoid such circumstance, disable it by using iTunes. Consequently, the iPhone device with its ability to detect that the protection no longer exists will enable you to continue the use of your device as normal.

Only a few steps on the list will help you upgrade to the iOS 9 and you’ll be good at go. Although the entire back up and instantly restoring it back may sound pointless to you, but it’s the best solution. Once you’re done with it, you’ll realize that it does drain out the annoying glitches making the upgrade much more hassle-free with smiling faces.
