My iPhone 6s froze after I upload newest update (I believe ios 10?). Plugged my phone into computer and clicked to update. I left the phone to upload for a couple hours and returned to see the black screen with white apple logo, and also see that thin upload bar, which seems to have gone across the phone — looks like the upload should be finished. But the phone is frozen. What should I do? Please help!
