T-Mobile Warns iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone SE Users to Avoid Installing iOS 10 Due to Connectivity Issues [Update: Fixed]


iOS 10 - Lock screen - Featured

T-Mobile has warned iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone SE owners from holding off on installing the iOS 10 update on their handsets for now. Many T-Mobile customers who have already installed the update have been reporting an intermittent loss in connectivity over the last couple of days.

The only solution for affected customers right now to restore connectivity on the phones is to restart them, but this only works for a limited time.

T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere confirmed on Twitter that the Un-carrier is working with Apple on resolving the issue with iOS 10 and a fix should arrive within the next 48 hours.

Considering that this problem is reportedly affecting millions of iPhone owners in the United States right now, this is no small deal. We should likely see Apple roll out an update to fix this issue before the weekend arrives.

The iOS 10 rollout has not been particularly smooth for the company. The rollout of the update was initially bricking many iPhones and iPads, which the company managed to fix within an hour or so of the update going live.

Have you noticed connectivity issues on your iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone SE after updating to iOS 10 on T-Mobile?

Update: T-mobile has issued a carrier update to fix the connectivity issue with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone SE. You can head over to Settings – > General -> About to download the latest 25.2 Carrier update if you are already on iOS 10.
