Apple iOS 10.2.1 may be experiencing a lot of problems that can be solved by downgrading but unfortunately, the company already stopped seeding iOS 10.2. This move is not unusual for Apple since the company usually stops signing older OS versions to encourage users to stay up to date. This means that those users who want to downgrade can no longer do so.

iOS 10.2.1 Bugs

Apple already rolled out an update for iOS 10.2, which will supposedly fix some security issues. However, there are some users who are disappointed with the latest software update because of the new bugs and problems. Among the issues that Apple users expected from iOS 10.2.1 is that it will finally fix the 30 percent bug which the update failed to do.

While iOS 10.2.1 has important security fixes and upgrading is highly encouraged, there are some users who would rather stick to the iOS 10.2 since their devices have major issues. Among the issues linked to Apple's 10.2.1 update includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity problems. Some users who downgraded saw improvements in their device. To those who were not able to downgrade yet, this is no longer an option and these Apple users would need to wait for the iOS 10.3, which is currently open for beta testing.

iOS 10.3

There is no denying that there have been a lot of issues linked to iOS 10.2. To address those concerns, Apple released the iOS 10.2.1. Unfortunately, the latest update brought about more problems to Apple users. Many are expecting that the upcoming iOS 10.3 could address the battery issues as well as correct connectivity issues in the latest update.

Aside from fixing the problems with the current iOS version, there are additional features in the upcoming software such as the Find My Airpods, updates to improve Siri and a new file system. Signing off iOS 10.2 may affect users with major issues with iOS 10.2.1 but the latest update is still useful since it contains vital security fixes.
