Apple Releases iOS 10.2.1 With Bug Fixes and Security Improvements

Apple today released iOS 10.2.1 to the public following several weeks of testing. iOS 10.2.1 also comes more than a month after the release of iOS 10.2, the second major update to the iOS 10 operating system.

iOS 10.2.1 is a free over-the-air update available to all iOS 10 users. It can also be downloaded and installed on iOS devices using iTunes on a Mac or PC. The update is still rolling out and may not be immediately available on all devices.

No outward-facing changes or new features were discovered during the beta testing process, suggesting the update focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements. According to Apple's own release notes for iOS 10.2.1, the update brings unspecified bug fixes and security improvements.

The iOS 10.2.1 update will soon be followed by a new iOS 10.3 beta, if rumors are correct. The first iOS 10.3 beta, with a new "Theatre Mode" was rumored to be coming out on January 10, but has not yet appeared.

For all we know this version has the NSA snooper code built in. Does anyone else think it is juvenile that Apple does not release any change notes. I know that its been this way under Jobs, but I have a real problem not knowing what changes have occurred and deciding if those changes are worth the risk of being an initial guinea pig.

Give it some time to show up. Plowing through the posts to find some real information is getting harder and harder.

But does it improve battery life on I phone 7. Only getting 6 to 7 hrs after 10.2 update

What are you doing on your phone each day? I wish that people would understand that battery life is completely subjective. If I do nothing but iMessage all day, I guarantee that my battery life is going to be a lot greater than someone who has push email on all day, plays games, streams videos/music, etc.

Battery will never be the same from person to person. Ever.

Hopefully it fixes the random battery shutoff bug.
