    Apple has released a software update for iPhone and iPad users who found that their devices stopped working after going to third-party technicians for repairs.

    The problem, known as Error 53, bricks your phone if any non-Apple source tampers with the newest version of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, installed on the iPhone 5s, 6 and 6s and some models of the iPad.

    Amazing what some bad press and a class action suit can do :)
