If you are an iPhone and iPad owner and you have been locked out of your device due to the latest update, worry less because Apple has solved the iOS 9.3 update bug problem.
The iOS 9.3 update on older versions of the phone needed IDs and passwords that were earlier on used during the setup.
Many people complained that they could no longer used their machines since they had forgotten the needed details or did not have them.
Apple has stopped devices that are vulnerable from downloading the software and have issued a new version of the operating system which skips the step requiring ID check if the machine is affected.
Apple stated that “In some cases, if customers do not recall their password, their device will remain in an inactivated state until they can recover or reset their password.”
“For these older devices, we have temporarily pulled back the update and will release an updated version of iOS 9.3 in the next few days that does not require this step.”
The technology firm has admitted that its iPhone 5S and previous smart phones have been affected by the issue.
Apple has provided some solution to those locked out of their phones. They can connect the device to a computer and then enter their present Apple ID details into iTunes. Alternatively, they can sign in to their iCloud accounts and then remove the activation lock under the Find My Phone function.
However, some user will still experience difficulties if their current account had not been associated with the device and they don’t want to lose data store on it.
If you are in such a situation, Apple has suggested that you contact the support team for further aid.
