Apple has just released the first bug fix centric iOS 10.0.2 update today for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The update includes fixes that should address issues where Lightning headphones would momentarily lose playback controls as well as other fixes.

Today’s update focuses on three major bugs, with the first being the annoyance plaguing users who have moved to using Lightning headphones daily. While intermittent, headphones plugged into the Lightning port would lose playback controls from headphones causing more headaches than necessary. The bug didn’t help reinforce Apple’s desire to remove the headphone jack when the majority of headphone users were just going to use the Lightning EarPods included in the packaging or the provided 3.5 mm to Lightning adapter. Today’s update should resolve those issues gracefully.

iOS 10.0.2’s release notes:

  • Addresses an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from temporarily not working
  • Resolves an issue that caused Photos to quit for some users when turning on iCloud Photo Library
  • Fixes an issue that prevented enabling some app extensions
