Apple run the beta for 3 solid months. Although the beta update did not brick any iPhone but the final update has caused several iPhone or iPads bricked and unusable.

So before you try to get an Over the Air (OTA) update next time, always take backup of your data. Although iCloud works better if you pay enough to Apple so that your entire storage has a backup on the iCloud account.

The simple solution is working with Apple iTunes and PC or MAC. The traditional way to unbrick an iPhone. Just reinstall iOS 10 or iOS 9 by using PC or Mac and you will get back your Phone into working condition.

Requires you to press Home Button to unlock

iOS 10 problem 4

With the new iOS 10 update , many will consider this as a new problem. Now you need to physically press the home button to unlock the device. The traditional slide to unlock feature is now removed. Many will think this will make their home button to deteriorate very soon.

How to disable “Press Home button to unlock” feature?

If you don’t like this feature then you can disable this feature by toggling a setting. You need to turn on “Rest Finger to Open” feature. With iOS 10 , this feature is turned off by default. This will unlock your phone by just resting your finger on the Touch ID and using your fingerprint unlocks your device instantly. No need to press home button again and again.

To enable rest finger to open , do the following:
Open settings >> Navigate to the General > Accessibility menu >> Choose Home Button >> Toggle “Rest Finger to Open”.

  1. my message and phone(Call) doesn’t open and I am not getting calls, after restarting the phone it is working fine for few minutes than again the same problem

  2. If I use Siri to place a phone call like “call my mom” when the phone call is over I have to press the home button once to bring up the home screen, press the home button a second time to get to the unlock screen, then unlock the phone and only then can I end the call. All this just to end my call, what a pain! And what’s worse is that after the phone is finally unlocked, it brings up the last screen I was using before the phone call so then I have to exit out of that screen in order to get to the phone screen to end my call. Why can’t the phone screen show up when I take the phone off my ear like it used to?
