Apple has rolled out the latest update for its operating systems, including iOS 17.0.2, iPadOS, and watchOS. The main focus of these updates is to fix bugs related to the initial device setup and data transfer.
Small point updates like these are crucial as they often contain critical security fixes that cannot afford to wait for a full release. iOS 17.0.2 has been released in the absence of any news about iOS 17.1, suggesting that Apple is now updating its software in smaller increments.
Initially, the update was only available for iPhone 15 models. However, it is now accessible to all iPhone models running on the OS. The build number for both iOS and iPadOS updates is 21A351, an improvement from the previous build 21A340 released on September 21.
Although there are no specific CVE entries listed, the updates do tackle a bug related to the initial device setup. Additionally, they may also address data transfer issues, which have been a concern for some users.
For Apple Watch users, the watchOS 10.0.2 update comes with build number 21R371. It is reported to focus on bug fixes and security updates for Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2. Moreover, it is expected to address data transfer issues as well.
As usual, it is highly recommended to update your devices to the latest software version to ensure optimum performance and security. These updates are available now for all compatible devices.
