While updating my iphone froze
There are scattered reports of i OS devices (i Pads, i Phones, i Pod touch devices) hanging or freezing during the i OS update process.Before you begin the update, shut down and restart your i Pad or other i OS device. Then hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.If your i Phone is stuck on the connect to i Tunes logo after updating to i OS 10, it means that the software update started but didn’t finish, so your i Phone can’t turn back on. Yes, it’s a serious software issue — but almost all software issues can be fixed at home.I’ll show you how — and what to do if the initial restore process fails.If you have an i Cloud backup, you’ll be able to sign in and restore from your backup as part of the setup process — just make sure you know your Apple ID and password.If you back up your i Phone to i Tunes, you’ll need to connect your i Phone to your computer at home to retrieve your data.(Rebooting is a good step to help prevent problems before updating computer or mobile device.) Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until a red slider appears. When you see the Apple logo, release the Sleep/Wake button.

Apple ended up pulling the i OS 8.0.1 update an hour after releasing it.
One big benefit for users of Apple i OS compared with Google's Android is they're able to update their devices to the latest version of the software each year.
But i OS often has bugs when it first hits the market, making it prudent for users to wait a few days before downloading.
Apple had some big problems with i OS 8 two years ago.
A bug prevented its then-new Health Kit feature, which would allow app developers to collect health information, from launching, and developers who made apps for Health Kit couldn't yet launch their software.
