Opposite results trying to install iOS 6.0.2

Apple is sending out iOS 6.0.2 to update its mobile devices currently running iOS 6.0.1. The latest build of the tech giant's mobile OS will help kill some bugs dead, including a nasty little bugger that has affected Wi-Fi connectivity on the Apple iPhone 5, and the Apple iPad mini. But unlike most iOS updates, which go down as smooth as a fine wine, the iOS 6.0.2 update is being choked on like Cod liver oil. And the problem, which seems to be with Apple's servers, is taking place on a wide range of Apple devices including the Apple iPhone 5, Apple iPhone 4S, 4th generation Apple iPad and the Apple iPad mini which means it is not related to one particular device.

If you're having a problem with the OTA process, you can go old-school and plug into iTunes to grab iOS 6.0.2. We should, for the sake of journalistic balance, tell you that not everyone is having a problem with the update via OTA. How is it going for you? Regardless if you've had a problem installing iOS 6.0.2, or it was a snap for you to update your Apple device, let us know by dropping us a comment below.

sheesh byt he size of your comment and your going out of the way just to prove your point...i think you're the one buddy who neeeds a chill pill man! and yeah one more thing why did you have to take tghe example of a GS3 only :)
anyways calling my comments thoughtless isnt cool bro...especially if you're an apple fanboy...we all think and are entitled to our opinions...so thoughtless is akin to name calling and you dont wanna go down that road on PA...trust me!
so unless you've a valid point or just a genuine opinion which I respect...dont bother to troll on my commetns!

Knowing Apple, they'll soon send out 6.0.2.1 with the advertisement: "With a new and improved update, you can now update your update to update! This changes everything again!"

If it truly were only for the iPad mini and the iPhone 5, why did the article have to mention the iPhone 4&4S? Oh, that's right, because they can receive the update too-- that's why.lol

I used to enjoy getting updates when I had an Android, there were IMPROVEMENTS and fun stuff. iOS updates are bug fixes and boring s**t.

And let's not even mention what their ICS update did to our Epic 4G Touch's (it shuts down a lot. Apparently it's a bug in the software that reads the battery level. It thinks the battery level is low and shuts down the phone. It won't restart until you stake the battery out and put it back in)

People bash apple for these updates, but hey, at least ios receives updates.

What matters to you? Getting these updates or features which are far better than included in iOS. I would choose Custom gingerbread/ICS or Stock Jellybean over iOS 6.

"far better" isn't factual buddy...its opinion-based so asking a person a question then answering that question w/a response about something you prefer was kind of pointless.

Irony buddy. You didn't back it by fact either. Fact and points, you have it. Now give me your PoV, and I hope you reply to this one, with fact. Except for smoothness (my 2.3 custom ROM was smooth enough for me), give me one thing that iOS does as an OS and ecosystem. iOS 6 features reject and sms, I had it on my desire 2.3, MIUI Rom. I didn't even notice it. And it looked similar to what it looks in iOS 6. Maps? You tell. Extra row of icons? Nah. An advanced notification center for iOS 6? Nah. I had swipe to remove individual notification in 2.3. Toggles? Slider for brightness or volume? Customizable Homescreens? Resizeable icons? (i think iOS hides the wallpaper and its beauty with its icons). I could have that shiny bulky icons on my droid, in fact I did, chose not to continue.
