In December, Apple pulled its highly anticipated iOS 10.2 update out of beta and delivered it to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models around the world. iOS 10.2 is a huge update for iPhone and iPad users as it brings new features, fixes and security patches. It’s also brought problems to some iOS 10 users.

Apple just released iOS 10.2.1

iOS 10.2.1 includes no new user features and really no noticeable changes or tweaks of any kind, at least on the surface. The update’s release notes indicate that it includes “bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad.”
