iOS 10.2 problems are plaguing iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners and today we want to touch on those problems and provide some resources to those running into trouble.


Shortly after its MacBook event in October, Apple released an iOS 10.2 beta for developers and those signed up for the free Beta Software Program.

The early version of the iOS 10.2 update arrived with new features and fixes but it also arrived with various problems on board.

The iOS 10.2 beta helped Apple weed out some bugs but the final version of iOS 10.2 is far from perfect. It’s early but we’re already hearing about some of the iOS 10.2 problems plaguing iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users.


With iOS 10.2 problems starting to surface we want to take a look at the most important things you need to know.

This roundup looks at the current state of iOS 10.2 problems, offers some potential. fixes for the most common issues, and offers some resources that could come in handy if you start to see trouble with your version of iOS 10.2.


iOS 10.2 Problems

The smoke from the iOS 10.2 release is still settling but we’re already hearing about some of the problems affecting those who recently download the company’s new milestone upgrade.

Early reports suggest iOS 10.2 users are suffering from the usual array of hiccups. We’ starting to see complaints about abnormal battery drain, broken connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Cellular Data), issues with lag, crashes, random reboots, installation problems, and more.

We expect complaints about iOS 10.2 problems to pickup in the weeks ahead as more people download and use iOS 10.2 on their device.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that, so far, we haven’t seen any widespread iOS 10.2 problems. That could also change in the weeks ahead.

It’s impossible to predict what you might run into after you install iOS 10.2 on your phone or tablet. This is why we recommend doing some prep work before you download the new update. A little preparation could go a long way toward preventing iOS 10.2 problems.

At the very least, you’ll want to make a backup, just in case you do run into one of these (or another) iOS 10.2 issues.

Where to Find Feedback

As we push away from the release date it’ll be important to keep tabs on the iOS 10.2 update and its performance.

Digging into iOS 10.2 feedback will alert you to potential problems and it’ll help you find potential benefits of the iOS 10.2 update. Fortunately, you’ll find a ton of iOS 10.2 feedback to dig through. You just need to know where to look.


To start, we’ve put together some reasons to and not to install the iOS 10.2 update right now. If you’re on the fence about iOS 10.2, you’ll want to start there. We’ll post additional feedback in the days to come so be on the lookout for it.

We also recommend keeping an eye on YouTube, Apple’s discussion forums, social media sites like Twitter/Facebook, and the MacRumors forums for additional feedback about Apple’s iOS 10.2 updates for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

How to Fix iOS 10.2 Problems

If you do run into trouble with iOS 10.2 you probably don’t need to make an appointment to see an Apple Genius. At least not yet. There’s a good chance you’ll be able to fix the problem on your own.

If you start noticing issues take a look at our lengthy list of fixes for the most common iOS 10 problems on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It includes potential fixes for abnormal battery drain, Wi-Fi issues, Bluetooth problems, and more.

If the list is unable to provide you with a remedy for your iOS 10.2 problem, you should go to Apple’s discussion forums for help with iPhone, iPad, Apple Music, and more.

If Apple’s official forums can’t help you solve whatever it is plaguing your iPhone or iPad, you can get in contact with Apple Support via Twitter or schedule an appointment to see a Genius at an Apple Store.

You Can Downgrade to iOS 10.1.1 or iOS 10.1

If you’re fine not having iOS 10.2 on board your phone or tablet, you can try downgrading to an older version of iOS 10 to see if that improves performance.

As of right now, Apple’s signing off on iOS 10.1 and iOS 10.1.1 which means you can drop down to either one of those. You can’t drop down to anything older than that.


We expect Apple to close up the two downgrades in the near future, possibly before the end of the year, so you’ll need to move quickly.

For more on the downgrade process, take a look at our walkthrough.

What’s Next

As of right now, it’s unclear.

Apple hasn’t released information about its iOS pipeline and rumors haven’t unearthed any new details regarding upcoming iOS 10 updates. In other words, it could be several weeks before we see the company roll out a bug fixer.

On the plus side, the company’s been rolling out rapid fire upgrades so we’d expect the iOS 10.2.1 update to come sooner rather than later.

So, if you and your iOS 10.2 problem can’t wait for the next Apple bug fix update, you’ll need to take your device into an Apple Store or better yet, try and fix the problem on your own.
