T-Mobile warns some iPhone users against installing iOS 10

If you’re a T-Mobile subscriber with an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPhone SE, and you haven’t upgraded to iOS 10 just yet, hold off for a little while longer.

That’s the word from 
T-Mobile’s Twitter channels, as the mobile carrier on Thursday alerted users of potential “connectivity issues” related to the new update.

The company and its chief executives, including 
CEO John Legere, claim that Apple is “working on a fix” for the problems, and that it will be released within the next 24-48 hours.

 

 

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment, while T-Mobile pointed us to the tweets above.

If you’ve already updated one of those devices, T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray says that those affected should temporarily restart their phone to restore any lost service.

Anecdotally, I’ve experienced this problem multiple times this week with an iPhone SE. The phone has said there’s no service where there normally would be, and has indeed required a restart to pick up T-Mobile’s network again.

This isn’t the first issue to come out of Apple’s iOS 10 rollout. Soon after the update arrived this past Tuesday, numerous users claimed that the release 
made their phones temporarily unusable.

Apple cleared that problem up within a few hours, and it’s unlikely the issues here will last for any significant period of time. Nevertheless, that won’t make things any less annoying for anyone struggling to connect tod.
