Apple Releases Final Version of iOS 10.2 to Public, Promises Lots of Fixes & Enhancements

iOS 10.2 is a wonderful update with a handful of great features which users are going to love. But we won’t be covering iOS 10.2 changes in this post as this is dedicated for downloading and updating only. We will cover the ‘what is new’ bit in a separate post, so be on a lookout for that.

Updating to the latest iOS 10.2 final release is a walk in the park as everything can be done over the air. You can start things off by connecting to a WiFi network and making sure your battery is above the 50% mark. If you battery is below 50, the installation won’t go forward. It’s a failsafe put in place by Apple that makes sure your device’s battery does not die during the installation process. The best thing to do here is to keep your power adapter at hand to keep things juiced up. Once you’re all set, launch the Settings app then navigate to General > Software Update. The iOS 10.2 download will pop right up. Tap on the ‘Download and Install’ button and you are golden.

The download can take quite a bit depending on the speed of your Internet connection. But once the download is complete, iOS will notify you about it then ask you for confirmation regarding installation. Proceed accordingly.

If you do not want to take the over the air route for installation and wish to install everything from scratch, then you can do so via iTunes. First and foremost, download the iOS 10.2 IPSW firmware file from the links below and save it on the desktop. Once that is done, make sure you back up everything on either iTunes or iCloud. Now plug in your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to your computer and then launch iTunes. Simply click on the ‘Restore iPhone’ button while holding down the left SHIFT key (Windows) or the left Option key (Mac) and select the IPSW file you downloaded a while back. iTunes will connect to Apple’s servers to verify the firmware file you downloaded after which the restoration process will begin. Once done, simply restore your iTunes or iCloud backup to your device.
