Help: iOS 6 Upgrade / Update Frozen!

Thursday, September 20th, 2012 | Business | by

iOS 6Yesterday I was installing the iOS 6 firmware on my iPad and iPhone.  My iPhone 4 (which was installed via iTunes on USB) installed without a problem.

My iPad was another story.  I tried the OTA (over the air) update, and it froze with the Apple logo and the progress bar (empty).

I waited an hour with nothing changing.

Finally I reset it:

  1. Unplug the iPad
  2. Hold the Home and Power buttons for a few seconds (it’ll turn black when it resets of course)

It came back, finished the update, and was ready to use a few minutes later.

Thanks! This helped with my iPhone 5 update problem today. When loading the most recent update, my phone froze. I pressed both the on/off & home button on it and “voila!”…it restarted and is working like a charm.
