    I downloaded the PB for iOS 10, and have had no problems until this weekend- my iPhone(6S) is now bricked. I've tried to reset (home and power), as well as trying to enter DFU mode, but nothing works... What should I do?

    1) Take it to an Apple Store
    2) Don't install a beta OS as your daily driver

    Are you sure that its the beta bricked the phone? it sounds to me like maybe you had a run of the mill hardware failure. I think most bricking occurs while trying to install the update.

    Do you have an apple store nearby or is the phone under warranty?

    Yeah you're absolutely right, I sort of skimmed over the fact he already installed it and was running fine for a few days. More likely to be hardware in which case.

    Sorry for my original blunt response OP. :p

    Yeah! It was running great for the last week or so, and then all of a sudden it died. I do have an Apple store nearby, I'll take it there if that is the best option. I guess maybe it is not bricked, but it will not respond to any command, plugged in, or not. It won't even go into DFU with iTunes

    iOS 10 did not cause this. If it did it would have happened during the original install. This sounds like a hardware failure. It's just a coincidence that you have iOS 10.
