Here are the official release notes which accompanied that release, providing Apple’s perspective on changes, improvements, and any features or security additions where applicable.
Notably, the list of inclusions found in Apple’s latest iOS 11.0.x version are minimal. However, things have been ramped up the next level recently with the release of iOS 11, watchOS 4, tvOS 11, macOS High Sierra 10.13. Concludes the announcement of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, Apple TV 4K and Apple Watch Series 3 (Review).
Apple’s engineers are very much involved in fixing the cons on iOS 11. Those dealines have once again been realized in a timely manner with last week’s release of iOS 11.0.1 and today’s subsequent release of iOS 11.0.2.
While the initial versions of iOS 11 only been with us feels like a few days, but the engineers ripping through support requests and known issues, bugs and other problems with the aim of getting new builds out into the hands of developers and device owners to fix those discovered issues.
The iOS 11.0.2 is exactly like the aforementioned ripper. A smaller point release that instantly introduces bug fixes, generic improvements and stability enhancements which should hopefully set the scene for larger releases going forward. In short and brief, Apple admitted and reacted quickly to try and fix some niggling issues that have been picked up in iOS 11.0 and 11.0.1 releases.
One of the biggest thing about these smaller, but continuous updates, is that Apple looks to include a set of release notes as best it possibly can with each release. So we can simply reference the included changelog to get an immediate idea of what the iOS engineers have been working on. You can checkout all of the full changelog for iOS 11.0.2 from Apple below:
