After releasing iOS 10.1 beta 1, Apple has made available for download iOS 10.0.2 IPSW links for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Details here.
It comes just a week and ew days after the initial public release of iOS 10 / 10.0.1, and when all exiting and new device owners are finding themselves of getting to know all of the new features that are bundled with the Apple’s latest major iOS revision.
Developers and public testers registered with Apple have been interacting with every single inclusion within iOS 10 since mid-June. After completion of eight pre-release seeds and one single Golden Master version released shortly after Apple’s September 7th iPhone 7 event, has finally released 10.0.1 to general public prior to the iPhone 7 going on general sale. This latest 10.0.2 release today shows that the company is far committed to fixing any issues with a matter of immediate commitment to offering a positive user-experience across all devices.
Of course, this is the first major point release after an initial major release that we can’t really expect Apple to have made any big changes or improvements. With that in mind, iOS 10.0.2 has been released with the usual bug fixes and performance enhancements that should likely fix a number of small niggles that certain users have been facing with iOS 10 running not only on older hardware like iPhone 5 series, but also on the recently released iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
The official changelog that accompanies iOS 10.0.2 release is as follows:
You might be still getting to grips with all of iOS 10’s quirks, and with an update already released to sort out a few problems. iOS 10.0.2, like other versions of iOS before it, is offered with immediate availability as an over-the-air download via the Software Update (Settings > General > Software Update) mechanism.
