Apple pushing out iOS 9.0.2 one week after iOS 9.0.1 was released

Tonight, Apple is in the process of sending out iOS 9.0.2. This comes exactly one week after the company released iOS 9.0.1. The changelist includes a fix that repairs an issue with the setting that turns on or off the app mobile data usage. Some users were having trouble activating iMessage, but this update clears up that problem.

Another issue taken care of with iOS 9.0.2 was one that allowed a manual iCloud Backup to be interrupted. A problem that made the screen incorrectly rotate when notifications arrived has been repaired, and the stability of Podcasts has been improved.

Since the update is going out OTA, you might not find it "waiting on your doorstep," so to speak. Be patient, you will receive iOS 9.0.2. The update weighs in at 62.1 MB which makes it larger than the iOS 9.0.1 file, which was 34.1 MB. While not a large size for an update, you might want to be hooked up to a Wi-Fi connection anyway, when beginning the updating process. And you should make sure that your battery is at least 50% charged when downloading and installing iOS 9.0.2.

Thanks for the tip!

I think it's great they're being quick and proactive about issues. Luckily, I haven't been affected by any of those bugs.

They definitely lead in that way, and having a dedicated brick&mortar store only helps solidify them as #1 in that regard...Now (getting off-topic) if the iPhone would only take native 16x9 photos.

Battery life has improved on my 5S with iOS 9 (had iOS 7 immediately prior and only upgraded to get camera flash working again), but the update has made it awful buggy. Hopefully 9.1 fixes this. (At least the camera flash is working again). Though luckily for me my primary phone is the GS5.

Typical Apple, always boasting about the adoption rate of their newest software version after the Launch of a new device.. and EVERY time they ALWAYS have to follow it up with at least 1 of not SEVERAL more updates to fox the original one that they rushed out the door... Lmfao FAIL. I mean a lot talk crap about androids update schedule and adoption rate. . But I don't remember Android EVER releasing an update that BROKE the phone app.the CORE FUNCTION of the device. That's just plain bad and amateur at best. Lmao GG
