Apple has started pushing iOS 10.0.2, a minor update to iOS 10 after users reported bugs affecting lightning earpods. The new update squashes all reported bugs for iPhone and iPad users.

The highlight of the update is the fix related to lightning earpods or headphones. Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users started reporting issues with lightning based headphones preventing audio controls from working. The update issued on Friday can be downloaded from Software update within Settings app or by connecting the compatible iOS device to iTunes on a Mac or PC.

According to Apple, iOS 10.0.2 fixes bugs and improves stability. The full list of changes spotlighted by the company are:
