The release arrives after weeks of beta seeds, both for developers and public beta testers, and brings with it a plethora of new features. Today was a busy day, especially considering the over-the-air (OTA) launch didn’t go as smoothly as Apple would have liked. Still, the new version of the company’s mobile operating system is now available to the public, so let’s take a look back.
With iOS 10 on the horizon, Apple released the latest version of iTunes. With it, iTunes brought support for different features, including Siri in macOS Sierra (which officially launches on September 20), picture-in-picture support for watching video, and a brand new redesign to Apple Music. That redesign goes hand-in-hand with Apple Music for iOS 10 — which iTunes 12.5.1 also supports.
After the release of the latest version of iTunes, Apple saw fit to unleash the newest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 10, into the world. The update was available as it usually is: Either through an over-the-air (OTA) update, or by connecting an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to a computer running the latest version of iTunes.

Almost immediately after the iOS 10 OTA update began, many iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch owners out in the wild began reporting issues with their update not only failing, but also soft bricking their handset altogether. Connecting to iTunes didn’t alleviate the issue, either, for many. However, the issue didn’t last long, and Apple officially confirmed that it had fixed the problem on their end, and that the OTA update should be going along as originally intended.
