When I checked my iPod Touch all the data had been wiped out, and iTunes refused to recognize the device. Try quiting and relaunching iTunes.

Those with bricked phones were forced to do a factory reset, and lost all of their contacts, saved notes, photos and videos. Finally, if all else fails, you may need to schedule a visit with the Genius folks at your local Apple store. If you tap Cancel, learn what to do next.

Apple has opened up new server space, and the demand is dying off slowly due to reports of problems. That will create a new and full backup of all your apps and other data. If iTunes doesn't open automatically, open it manually. You first want to back up your device.

To update now, tap Install. If you don't know your passcode, learn what to do. Finally, I received a message telling me that iTunes detected my device and that I had to restore it before it could be used.

This problem has mostly fixed itself. Apple's server load is returning to normal so if you're still having problems upgrading, it's possible there's a problem on your end.
