The "Slide to Upgrade" bug is a glitch that is affecting users who are trying to upgrade their Apple devices to the newly released IOS 9 mobile operating system. [1]


The problem occurs after users have installed the update. Their device becomes stuck on a screen that prompts them to "Slide to Upgrade", but does not allow them to complete the task. Instead, the screen simply freezes and the user is unable to slide as instructed.
