After the stories came out and the consumers started reporting the issues, Apple was forced to send out another iOS 9.3 update as a fix for this problem. The name of the iOS version has been kept the same, only build number is different 13E237. Apple has immediately updated their website’s help center with the steps involved in fixing the issue.
Apple has dropped the iOS 9.3 update and asking all the impacted users to update their devices again. However there are few issues there also. In order to update the user will have to get to the setting sand then use their current Apple ID and password, in case the credentials are wrong the device will be locked permanently. It is recommended that users should use the iCloud web link from a computer and then perform the update so that in case they forget the credentials, it could be re-created from the website which is not possible from the hand held device. One more option has been mentioned where the user could connect the device to a computer using USB and connect it to iTunes which will further give the access to activate the device.
