Apple may have just gone live with the iOS 7.0.6 update for iPhone and iPad, but we are already hearing from some of you that there are some iOS 7.0.6 problems that are ruining the fun. Specifically, we’ve heard in some extreme cases that the iOS 7.0.6 update has bricked iPhones and iPads.
It sounds scary, but luckily it doesn’t appear to be a widespread problem. Apple’s sole fix with iOS 7.0.6 is a security update that provides a fix for ‘SSL connection verification’.
While some average users may overlook this as another minor update, it appears that those with technical insight are under the impression that Apple has finally managed to issue a fix for a major security risk.
Upon installation of iOS 7.0.6 though, some users have been greeted with issues. A Tweet below tells the story of one user who said that both his iPad and iPhone went ‘bonkers’ after installing iOS 7.0.6.
Anyone else having problems with iOS 7.0.6? Both my phone and iPad went bonkers.

Another outcry from one user thankfully reported no such problems with her own update, but did reference the fact that other users have seen bricked devices after installing, which obviously isn’t good at all.
Updated to IOS 7.0.6. No problems. I was nervous after reading an article about it bricking some products.

Apple has yet to release an official statement on the matter, but it will be interesting to see if the situation with alleged ‘bricked’ devices escalates further.
