Apple has released the first official update to the iOS 10 for compatible iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads on Friday dubbed iOS 10.0.2, just 10 days after releasing iOS 10 to the public and two days after seeding the first iOS 10.1 beta.
The new release is focused primarily on behind-the-scenes fixes and tweaks, improving the overall experience for users, while also squashing some bugs that have been discovered since the release of iOS 10 earlier in September.
Some of the major bugs that the new software is meant to fix is an issue with the Lightning EarPods and the iPhone 7, which was discovered after the iPhone 7 launched. Some EarPods would time out when listening to music, while others noticed that in-line controls were not working properly.
The update also resolves an issue that caused Photos to quit for some users when activating iCloud Photo Library and fixes an issue that prevented enabling some app extensions.
The full change log is available below:
• Addresses an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from temporarily not working
• Resolves an issue that caused Photos to quit for some users when turning on iCloud Photo Library
• Fixes an issue that prevented enabling some app extensions
The new software can be installed as an over-the-air (OTA) update. Simply head into Settings –> General –> Software Update, and then follow the on screen prompts.
