Apple has just pushed out iOS 10.0.2 for download, which includes the following fixes:

The update is available over-the-air and comes in at 56.1MB for the iPhone 6s Plus.

Earlier this week, Apple released iOS 10.1 for developers and public beta testers, which included the new Portrait mode for the iPhone 7 Plus camera.

Update: Looks like Apple’s over-the-air update bug is still kicking around for some users, as iPhone in Canada reader @PhilippeODupois let us know his iPhone 5s, after updating, got stuck on the ‘plug into iTunes’ screen.

Our iPhone 6s Plus is installing the update OTA right now, and we’ll keep you updated if we encounter that bug again.

    “could prevent headphone audio controls from temporarily not working”? So we want to make sure we can have them temporarily not work?

    Updated OTA, iPhone 7 Plus. No issues

  • Yay!!!
    I was using my phone today at work for the first day and the audio controls kept quitting and not working after 3 minutes. I had to keep reconnecting the headphones to get control back, glad this update came out.

    Update converted my 10.0.1 to 10.0.2 converted my 7 digit passcord to 6 digits. I Think there are serious background issues with iOS 10.

    This was the case with bluetooth headphones as well. The button used to pair also controls play/pause and long press for Siri. Problem was that with the iOS 10 update the commands got overlapped. So depending on your pressing habits you’d get different results with the earpods, and connectivity/playback issues with bluetooth headsets.
