iOS 6.0.2 out: Update folks (iPhone 5 and iPad mini Only)

Just getting word now that Apple has pushed out an update to iOS 6 that is supposed to fix WiFi issues.

Just read on The Loop that iOS 6.0.2 is out—we’ll update asap.

This is what the update says when checking through iTunes:

iOS 6.0.2 Software Update

This update contains improvements and bug fixes, including:

•  Fixes a bug that could impact Wi-Fi

There is also a link to security updates, but I would gather that WiFi fixes are more interesting to most of us.

What is more interesting is that Apple pushed iOS 6.0.2 out now rather than wait for iOS 6.1 (which was just updated to beta 4 yesterday). Unless iOS 6.1 isn’t coming before the holiday break, in which case Apple would want to squash a bug in iOS that might (actually does) lead to frustration using all those brand new iPads and iPhones people are getting this season.

Also worth noting that when I tried to check for over the air for the update on my iPad mini and iPhone, the check failed so I’m going old school and updating through iTunes. How retro. Let us know how it goes.

Update 1:

It looks like this update is just for the iPad mini and iPhone 5, I’ll check my other iOS devices just for kicks and giggles after my iPhone is done rebooting.

Update 2:
