    Anyone else have a brick after the 8.1 update?

    It isn't bricked. Put it into DFU mode and restore in iTunes.

    5S upgrade, smooth as silk and running way faster.
    OTA upgrade within 10mins of release.

    An iOS device will always go into DFU mode. If it doesn't then it's either user error or a hardware error.

    Google "DFU mode". You're probably doing it wrong. If not, your phone had a hardware failure in which it's not the update's fault.

    Also the battery could be completely discharged. What happens on the screen when an Apple cable in plugged into power?
    Although, I have seen at least one iOS device that needed to be fully discharge before it would work again. (The home button did not work)

    My 2 friends iPhone 5S had problems when it came to OTA update.

    The screens went black for roughly 15-20 minutes, on clicking the home button it would say 'verifying update...'.

    The OTA update went successfully on my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air but my iPad mini retina was stuck in the Apple logo and needed a restore. Fortunately I plugged in the device a day ago and there is an iCloud backup. :rolleyes:
