iOS 10.0.2 arrives with trio of bug fixes, including one for erratic headphone controls
Despite a big problem encountered by a small number of iFans during the first hour of iOS 10 availability, plus a bunch of less serious but more widespread connectivity issues limited to T-Mobile’s network, everybody wants to upgrade to the latest and greatest build of Apple’s closed platform.
While beta testers can already try iOS 10.1 for size, the general public needs to settle for a marginal 10.0.2 fix at the moment, ironing out three specific kinks, of which one caused plenty of headaches in the past week or so, especially for early iPhone 7 adopters.
Left without their dear headphone jacks, they had to endure Lightning-attaching glitches too, as audio controls often stopped working after a period of wired EarPod inactivity. You should have no more of that once you download and install OS version 10.0.2, with the stability of your various iPhones and iPads also improved as far as “some” app extensions and the native Photos app are concerned.
Your typical maintenance update, this barely tips the scales at 35MB or so, yet it promises to substantially alter the user experience, at least for folks with sound control malfunctions. Bottom line, it’s highly recommended you get it while waiting for 10.1.
