Apple Releases iOS 6.0.2 Update For iPhone 5 and iPad Mini

People who have bought the latest iPhone 5 and iPad Mini have been complaining about intermittent connectivity whenever they activate their Wi-Fi. This problem was supposed to be fixed when iOS 6.0.1 was released however some users are still reporting that the issue has not been resolved on their devices.

Apple has released a new update called iOS 6.0.2 which the company says will finally put a rest to this issue that is affecting two of their latest models. You will be able to update your device via iTunes as of this time as the OTA update doesn’t seem to work.

Just connect your device to your iTunes to facilitate the update or if you want to wait for the OTA to come back online you can do that as well.  If you own an iPhone 5 then the update is going to be around 983 MB while iPad Mini users have to download more than 800 MB. Make sure you have a fast and stable connection before proceeding with the update.

The iOS 6.0.2 update seems to have a rocky start as the OTA update option provides an error to users. We are sure though that this will be resolved soon.

The company is currently working on iOS 6. 1 and has provided developers with the 4th beta version of the OS. It contains several bug fixes and a few improvements. It is not available to the general public yet and only made available to developers so they may test it to see if there are any problems with their apps working on it. There is still no definite date though when this update will be released but most people are counting on it to arrive before the year ends.

If you own an iPhone 5 or an iPad Mini then you should check out iOS 6.0.2 and update your device.
