iOS 10 Release Notes

Apple has released a brand new version of iOS 10, the version of the mobile operating system it officially rolled out to the masses last week.

The new release is iOS 10.0.2, and it’s 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. 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.


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 includes a fix for Photos crashing when switching on iCloud Photo Library.

Earlier this week, Apple seeded the first developer and public beta for iOS 10.1, which will include other improvements, and also includes Portrait Mode in the stock Camera app for iPhone 7 Plus owners.

The update is now available.
