Apple has released an updated build of iOS 17.0.2, addressing issues with data transfer during setup. Last week, Apple had to quickly release a software update for iPhone 15 models as users were experiencing problems when transferring data from one iPhone to another. While most users received the iOS 17.0.1 update, iPhone 15 users received iOS 17.0.2. Now, Apple has rolled out an updated build of iOS 17.0.2 for all compatible iPhone models.
The original build of iOS 17.0.2 was 21A350, but the updated build number is 21A351. The release notes for both builds mention that the update fixes a problem that may prevent transferring data directly from another iPhone during setup. It seems that some users were still experiencing issues with data transfer, prompting Apple to release an updated build of iOS 17.0.2.
It is worth noting that the updated build of iOS 17.0.2 is available for all iPhone models compatible with iOS 17, not just iPhone 15 models. This means that users of other iPhone models can also benefit from the bug fixes related to data transfer.
The problems with data transfer arose when users skipped the iOS 17.0.2 update during setup. This update was necessary to fix bugs related to data transfer and ensure a smooth migration from an old iPhone to a new iPhone 15. Users who skipped this update found their devices getting stuck on the Apple logo after attempting to restore the backup from their old iPhone.
In addition to the iOS 17.0.2 update, Apple has also released watchOS 10.0.2 for Apple Watch users. The release notes for the update mention that it includes bug fixes and important security updates. This update ensures that Apple Watch users have a more stable and secure experience.
To update your iPhone to iOS 17.0.2, simply open the Settings app, tap General, and choose Software Update. For Apple Watch users, the update is available through the Watch app on the paired iPhone.
It is always recommended to keep your devices up to date with the latest software updates to ensure optimal performance and security. These updates address any known issues and vulnerabilities, providing a smoother and safer user experience.
