Apple’s latest iOS 10.2 has serious problems; read how to fix them

Apple’s iOS 10.2 problems are plaguing iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners and today we want to touch on those problems and provide some resources to those running into trouble.

Shortly after its MacBook event in October, Apple released an iOS 10.2 beta for developers and those signed up for the free Beta Software Program.

The early version of the iOS 10.2 update arrived with new features and fixes but it also arrived with various problems on board.

The iOS 10.2 beta helped Apple weed out some bugs but the final version of iOS 10.2 is far from perfect. It’s early but we’re already hearing about some of the iOS 10.2 problems plaguing iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users.

With iOS 10.2 problems starting to surface we want to take a look at the most important things you need to know.

This roundup looks at the current state of iOS 10.2 problems, offers some potential. fixes for the most common issues, and offers some resources that could come in handy if you start to see trouble with your version of iOS 10.2.

iOS 10.2 Problems

The smoke from the iOS 10.2 release is still settling but we’re already hearing about some of the problems affecting those who recently download the company’s new milestone upgrade.

Early reports suggest iOS 10.2 users are suffering from the usual array of hiccups. We’ starting to see complaints about abnormal battery drain, broken connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Cellular Data), issues with lag, crashes, random reboots, installation problems, and more.

We expect complaints about iOS 10.2 problems to pickup in the weeks ahead as more people download and use iOS 10.2 on their device.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that, so far, we haven’t seen any widespread iOS 10.2 problems. That could also change in the weeks ahead.

How to fix

If you do run into trouble with iOS 10.2 you probably don’t need to make an appointment to see an Apple Genius. At least not yet. There’s a good chance you’ll be able to fix the problem on your own.

If you start noticing issues take a look at our lengthy list of fixes for the most common iOS 10 problems on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It includes potential fixes for abnormal battery drain, Wi-Fi issues, Bluetooth problems, and more.

If the list is unable to provide you with a remedy for your iOS 10.2 problem, you should go to Apple’s discussion forums for help with iPhone, iPad, Apple Music, and more.

If Apple’s official forums can’t help you solve whatever it is plaguing your iPhone or iPad, you can get in contact with Apple Support via Twitter or schedule an appointment to see a Genius at an Apple Store.
