iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE T-Mobile Users Face Network Issue on iOS 10; Apple Issues Fix
- T-Mobile subscribers were facing network loss after installing iOS 10
- The issue was specific to iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone SE users
- Apple has resolved the issue and released a fix for it
iOS 10 was released a few days ago for eligible iOS devices. Initial adopters faced bricking issues, but Apple quickly resolved it, and asked affected users to restore their devices via iTunes. Now, T-Mobile subscribers, specifically with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone SE units, are reporting lack of connectivity issues after switching to iOS 10. However, the telecom firm’s CEO John Legere has confirmed that Apple has released a fix to the connectivity problem, and has resolved the issue.
Legere took to Twitter to announce that there was a network issue faced by many iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone SE users after installing iOS 10. Users faced frequent network blackouts, and have to keep restarting their smartphones to restore network. Legere on Thursday asked T-Mobile subscribers to not install iOS 10, until the issue is fixed, which Apple promised to resolve within 48 hours. A few hours ago however, Legere confirmed that Apple has fixed the issue, and that the iOS 10 update is now safe to install.
All affected users can head to Settings > General > About to install the fix, and install the fix to resolve the issue. Users who didn’t download iOS 10 till now, can now do so freely by going to Settings > General > Software Update.
