George has an iPad and he keeps getting notified to upgrade to iOS 9.3.1. He keeps installing it, and it still asks him to upgrade it. Leo says that if he's not experiencing his iPad freezing up, then it really isn't as crucial to install it. But if he wants to do it, he should turn off the iPad completely and then turn it back on and install it. If that doesn't work, then Leo says that a visit to an Apple genius may be in his future.
Larry has a Windows 10 gaming machine that he built, but after updating to Windows 10, it won't boot up. It always crashes. But when he put his Linux disk in it and it runs fine. Leo says that it's likely a driver issue. It's not uncommon for Windows to crash after being updated as there may be additional features that the hardware won't support. Microsoft may have put in a driver that isn't supported by Larry's hardware set. There's a good chance there's nothing wrong with the hardware and that in time, Microsoft will release a fix.

This echoes things Leo has said for a long time on the show, and it's all in one place.
Chris has two Android phones and after getting an update, he keeps hearing an unfamiliar voice through his headset. Leo says that the headset offers voices from Cortana, Siri or Google Now. The headset uses the voices from his phone, and that's likely what Chris is hearing.
BlueAnt is a great headset because it will talk you through setup and announce the callers. That's what the Voyager Legend does as well. But it's drives Chris crazy. Leo says it's likely coming from the phone and he can turn it off in the settings.
