A fairly large group of users who were quick to update to IOS 9 encountered a nasty bug that makes the unit enters a locked state. Here is the solution if you get the same iphone jammed problem.

New IOS system does unfortunately update concerns. When tens of millions of iPhone and iPad users simultaneously try to update to a new version of IOS it usually usually turn up any problems that all the beta testing have not managed to spirit away.

With iOS 8, there were many who could not even try to install the update because it required so much space, and iOS 7 ran out of batteries and some apps did SpringBoard to reboot.

Now the IOS 9 here, and this time, Apple seems to have missed an unusually nasty bug. Apple support forums are namely full of angry and anxious comments from users whose iPhone or iPad is stuck in the update and seems completely locked, where the display only shows “slide to upgrade” or its equivalent in other languages.

Fix iPhone Jammed Problem When Updating to iOS 9

Apple is aware of the iphone jammed problem when update to iOS 9 and have now released a support document that go through how you can get out of the lock:

1. Connect your iPhone or iPad to a computer with the latest version of iTunes (12.3).
2. Click on your device in iTunes. If it does not show up, you can force it to reboot first by holding down the lock button and the Home button simultaneously for 10 seconds until the Apple icon appears.
3. Restore from the last backup. If you have not done any backup in iTunes on time you can make a manual first, even though the device is locked. When you restore from should the problem be solved anyway.

We have seen reports that this does not work, for example because of Find my iPhone / iPad was turned on.

What you can try instead in that case is to first reset the device via DFU mode and then try to restore the backup.

1. Do not forget to make a manual backup in iTunes if you have not done a recently!
2. Put the device in DFU mode. Hold down the on / off button for three seconds. Then hold down the Home button together with the on / off button (without releasing it later) for 10 seconds. Release the on / off button but keep holding the Home button for another 5-10 seconds until Itunes announces that it has found a device in recovery mode.

3. Restore your device with iTunes.
4. When completed, you must unlock it using your Apple ID if you’d Find My Iphone / Ipad on.
5. Restore from backup in iTunes.
6. Keep your fingers crossed.

We hope that those steps above could fix your ipad or iphone jammed problem when update your ios to IOS 9.
