iOS 10.2.1 News: iOS 10.2.1 Fixing iPhone 6 And iPhone 6s Random Battery Shutdowns, But Introduces New Problems [VIDEO]By Tyrone Smith
A couple of months ago, Apple Inc. acknowledged that a number of iPhone users were experiencing unexpected shutdowns. The shutdown issue primarily affects the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, as well as iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. Nonetheless, the tech giant claims that updating to the latest version of iOS, which is iOS 10.2.1, could ward off random battery shutdowns.
The Cupertino based tech company has been working on the iDevices bug. Wherein, the tech giant released a number of fixes in iOS 10.2.1 in late January. The iOS 10.2.1 had fixed 80 percent of the issues for iPhone 6S devices and 70 percent for iPhone 6, according to Tech Crunch. The tech company claims that iOS 10.2.1 update has been installed on about half of all compatible Apple devices, so if a person have one of the affected handsets and noticed the issues, it is recommended to fire up the update now.
Apple rep said in a statement that if an Apple device user still experiences an unexpected shutdown, they added the ability for the device to restart without connecting to power. The tech giant noted that the unexpected shutdowns are not a safety issue. Nevertheless, they understand it can be an inconvenience for users and they wanted to fix the issue as soon as possible.
In spite of that, while the tech giant is pushing users to install the iOS 10.2.1 update, the update also introduces a lot of new problems. Other than the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, bizarre bug lowers the screen brightness at 74 percent and 49 percent. The iOS 10.2.1 update is breaking the recognition of the Touch ID fingerprint. Also, the update launches problems on Bluetooth connectivity and stability, Forbes reported.
That being the case, if an Apple device user wanted to acquire the iOS 10.2.1 update, the user can head to Settings, General and then Software Update.
