Apple Releases IOS 6.0.2 Update That Combats Wi-Fi Bug But It’s Just For iPad Mini & iPhone 5


Apple’s IOS6 users that have been frustrated by what’s been called the “Wi-Fi Bug” will be pleased to know that they have released an update to the software that allegedly combats this issue.

But before you get all excited, the update is only available for Apple’s newest devices, the iPhone 5 and the iPad Mini.

The update doesn’t contain any dramatic new features, so if you use an older device and you haven’t been affected by the Wi-Fi bug, then there’s no real reason to be overly bothered that you can’t get it.

The update description states that it “Fixes a bug that could impact Wi-Fi” as well as containing other minor software improvements. It is available over-the-air, but if like some users, you are having problems accessing it, you can plug your device into a computer and install it via iTunes.

Since iOS6 was launched a few months back, it has had a mixed reception from users. Some users loved the improvements to Siri who has pretty much become a virtual secretary but many were bitterly disappointed with the Apple Maps App which was glitchy and did not compare to the beloved Google Maps. Since Google announced a few days ago that their iOS compatible Maps App would be available many users who had not updated to the new software took the plunge.

Have you upgraded to iOS6? If you have, leave a comment and let us know what you think of it.
