iPhone 6s bad Motherboard Upon Software Update

My iPhone 6S broke down during a software update run. I plugged the phone on charge and set it to update the software while being connected to my home WiFi. I come back after 15-20 minutes, and then screen is showing the black apple logo with white background (like how it restarts). It has since then stuck in that state. I connected to iTunes to restore backup and update, which it went through the steps but right at the last step when it restarts it got stuck at the same screen again. I took it to the Apple desk at Best Buy and they said it has a bad motherboard and apparently a lot of the 6S’s are dying like this while going through the software update. Any idea is a bad motherboard can be fixed?

Answer this question I have this problem too

@arbaman I mis-read the question.


@ajcooke01 you are too intelligent to mis-read like that, get serious about it :)


@arbaman Haha thanks. After a long day of school I just didn’t have the mental capability to completely understand the question. :-{

Software updates put devices to trial and sometimes make emerge troubles from deep, as updates do call to test parts that would otherwise work or just partly work as we don’t use every single function daily. Major updates from one Os to the newer one are the worse and sometimes phones that would work “normally” get stuck. Anything unusual happened to your phone in the near past, such as bad drops, spills or parts replacements ?
