iOS 7.0.2 demanded following 7.0.1 rebuff

By Updated on

If you became the proud owner of a new iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S yesterday then you would have noticed you being encouraged to update to iOS 7.0.1. This was to fix a few minor bugs that Apple had found at the last minute.

The iOS 7.0.1 was made available at the same time as the public release of iOS 7, but at that time people would not have known about it, unless they had the iPhone 5C, as this was released before the 5S. However, what we do not understand was why the cheaper model had the update in the first place, as it was mostly to resolve a 5S issue?

According to Apple Insider, iOS 7.0.1 was mainly to fix the iPhone 5S fingerprint scanner bug, and while Apple was not clear on what this issue was, they did say it was only a minor problem.

With this is mind, those of you who upgraded to iOS 7 on your older iPhones will now be demanding an iOS 7.0.2 update release, because they are pretty certain they will not get 7.0.1 because this has already been released and is not for them.

This does make sense because the iOS 7.0.2 should be the next update and will be widespread to all iOS iPhone devices, or just those that support the latest version of Apple’s mobile OS.

What should iOS 7.0.2 update resolve? As ever there have been battery drain issues with iOS 7, but we already offered details on how this can be resolved. However, there are more serious issues, such as security flaws due to a lock screen hack, apps not working and also iPhones crashing. However, for the most part this has been a more stable update than iOS 6, although it is still early days.
