The iOS 10.2 update was one of the most discussed and anticipated firmware updates for Apple’s iOS operating system in a very long time. Its popularity and “hot topic” status were in full bloom long before the update was out, due to a number of reasons.
Jailbreaking played a big role in the popularization of iOS 10.2, as it was announced by various jailbreaking entities such as Pangu that the release of iOS 10.2 will also mark the release of a Jailbreak solution for Apple’s iOS 10 which has been out for months now.
The rest of the hype was generated through the array of features promised by 10.2 as well as its lengthy development. The build was taken through no less than seven beta testing phases, with the last one adding crucial defensive capabilities for iOS. The seventh beta phase is also the reason why Pangu or other jailbreakers were unsuccessful in cracking Apple’s software thus resulting in a frustrated community.
Apple iOS 10.2 is finally out and everyone should be happy about it, right? Not really, as it seems that the firmware is what you might call lackluster and unfulfilling in the sense that people expected more from the newest release. An iOS device bug has been swarming throughout the Apple community, and it has come to be known as the battery bug.
To be more specific, affected devices bug out and turn off once it hits 30% remaining battery. Everyone hoped this would be fixed in 10.2 but it looks like the update only made things worse, in fact.
A pseudo fix was found in the form of downgrading to iOS 10.1 and 10.1.1, but Apple intervened and prohibited people from further downgrading their devices. In return, if you’ve bought your iPhone between October 2015 and September 2015, you get your unit repaired for free.
