Apple has released a new software update for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod devices that will upgrade these devices to iOS version 11.0.2. It comes with the firmware build version 15A421 and marks as the second bug fix patch by the company.

The iOS 11 software adoption was not well-received compared to its predecessor, the iOS 10. According to reports, iOS 11 had only been on at least 10 percent of supported devices after 24 hours of its release while iOS 10 was adopted only in at least 14 percent after 24 hours when it went live. Tech enthusiasts suggested to wait a little longer before updating to a major software release to ensure maturity of the new version and avoid encountering possible issues.

Issues reported by users worldwide include the inability to connect to a Wi-Fi network, the disappearance of certain apps or some of them are not working properly, device storage reaching full capacity, slow performance of the Home button to wake up the device, and poor battery life after upgrading to iOS 11.

iOS 11.0.2 includes several bug fixes and improvements targeting the following issues in the mentioned touch devices:

- Crackling sounds heard during calls for a small number of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus devices.

- Some photos become hidden.

- Attachments in S/MIME encrypted emails would not open.

Users can update their devices by going to the Settings menu, navigating to the General tab, and selecting the Software Update option. The device must be connected to a power outlet or have at least 50 percent battery life to perform the software update.
