Is iOS 10.2.1 Causing More Problems Than Fixes?

Apple just released iOS 10.2.1 but there are more complaints than impressive comments about its latest software upgrade. Just five days after the update was released, Apple has been receiving a lot of complaints about the iOS release. While the iOS 1 .2.1 contains important security fixes, it ignores some bugs, some other problems remain unresolved, and worse there are new issues that pester iPod, iPad and iPhone owners.

Apple Touch ID Problems

Among the most common issues reported by users who upgraded to iOS 10.2.1 is the problem on Apple Touch ID. It seems that the fingerprint sensor in their mobile phones suddenly stopped working after they upgraded their device.

This is one of the most common problems in iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Another major issue that has been reported by Apple device users is that the brightness level suddenly drops when the battery percentage reaches a certain level. Based on the information from Forbes, battery brightness decreases to 70 percent when the battery is at 74 percent. When the phone's battery decreases further to 49 percent, the brightness drops to 50 percent. While this change is a bit startling, some speculate that Apple intended to roll out this update to fix the 30 percent bug issue. Unfortunately, many Apple users hate the auto brightness feature.

iOS 10.2.1 Bugs

While the update brought about some fixes, bigger problems also accompanied Apple's update. There were Bluetooth compatibility problems and there are also several complaints about the battery drain.

In addition, some users also noticed that the update affected the performance and the reliability of their Wi-Fi connection. There were some users who saw improvements in their device when they downgraded to iOS 10.2. Despite these flaws, there are important security fixes in the update that could help any Apple user.

As of the moment, Apple is working on the iOS 10.3 and its new operating software is in beta testing. Many users are hoping that Apple can roll out this update four to six weeks from now and that it will fix the problems with iOS 10.2.1.
