Apple sends out iOS 6.0.2 to fix bugs, but some are unable to close the deal
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 126.96.36.199 with the advertisement: "With a new and improved update, you can now update your update to update! This changes everything again!"

Best iOS 6.0.2 update since 6.0.1 or Best thing happened to iOS 6 since iOS 6.0.1

The update is only for the iPad mini and the iPhone 5.
7. big.e927 (Posts: 94; Member since: 21 Nov 2012)
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

go to support.apple.com/kb/DL1621 ... pay attention to the right-hand side, under "system requirements."

Goes to prove that they are either bigger or smaller version of the same thing packages as something different :)

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.

Grrrrrrr....this update does NOT fix the problem of not being able to send images through SMS!
12. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5618; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
Get a GS III. I can send photos by SMS message all the time.
15. christianqwerty (Posts: 460; Member since: 05 May 2011)
yeah, its great that pictures on my gs3 come as videos multi media messages.
17. sithvenger (banned) (Posts: 371; Member since: 25 Aug 2012)
So can I on my ip5, and I can even edit the vids and preview what I edited it to before I send it.

I wish samsung would push these updates so quickly. Too many bugs after jellybean.
24. rcrider4 (Posts: 118; Member since: 14 Nov 2011)
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.
21. iDroidWin (Posts: 117; Member since: 07 Dec 2012)
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.
29. CRICKETownz (Posts: 980; Member since: 24 Oct 2009)
"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.
30. iDroidWin (Posts: 117; Member since: 07 Dec 2012)
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.
