    35 views Apple's iTunes activation server has gone down, and reports are coming in that it took quite a few iOS devices with it. Around the world, iOS devices have been reportedly bricked as a result of this situation. The problem appears to be linked to devices being updated or restored to iOS 4.3.3, which is the most recent iOS release from Apple.

    In this video Reza and Chris discuss methods for backing up your iOS device as a security precaution to avoid situations like this from wiping out your important data.

    Apple users have since reported that the activation servers are back online and their phones are working once again. If you haven't updated your iDevice yet, it's probably a good idea to wait until the matter has been addressed as officially resolved by Apple.

    Were your iOS devices affected by this?
