The iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 update is a small but important update for the former flagship and today we want to take a close look at the key iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 update details including an updated peek at its performance.
On September 13th, Apple rolled out its long awaited iPhone 5s iOS 10 update bringing new features and enhancements to the 4-inch device.
The iOS 10 update delivered some positive changes to the company’s mobile operating system but it also brought problems to the iPhone 5s and other iOS 9-powered devices.
Apple’s addressed some of these problems with its iOS 10.0.2 release for the iPhone 5s. (Apple’s iOS 10.0.3 update is an exclusive to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.)
The iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 update isn’t a massive upgrade but it’s important. If you’re coming from iOS 10.0.1, iOS 10.0.2 is tiny. If you’re coming from something older like iOS 9 or iOS 8, your iPhone 5s’ iOS 10.0.2 update is going to be bigger thanks to iOS 10 and its features.
Today we take a close look at the iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 update. This roundup offers our updated iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 impressions, information about iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 problems, some details about the iOS 10 jailbreak and more.
We’ll continue to update this with new details so check back for updates as we push deeper into the month.
iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 Review: One Month Later
The iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 update, like Apple's other iOS 10.0.2 updates, is extremely small and should only take you a few minutes to download over a speedy Wi-Fi connection. The installation process took less than 10 minutes to complete on our model.
We didn't run into any installation problems and we haven't heard about any widespread issues with the iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 installation process. That said, you'll still want to take the time to prepare your device for the upgrade.
We've been taking a look at the iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 update's performance in the weeks since its release. Here's what we've found at the month mark.
Battery life is still holding up well. We haven't run into any major problems and it seems to be holding a normal charge. If you download iOS 10.0.2 and you run into issues, give it a couple of days to even out. If after two days you're still seeing problems, you'll want to take action.
We've tested the iPhone 5s iOS 10.0.2 update with several ISPs, routers, and Bluetooth devices. So far so good. We haven't run into any major issues with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or LTE/4G.
The iPhone 5s' UI is still fast with iOS 10.0.2 on board. Lag was a bit of a problem on iOS 9 but we haven't seen much on iOS 10. We've noticed a little choppiness when bringing up Control Center but the lag is irregular. It happens once or twice a day on our device.
iOS 10.0.2 is stable on our version of the iPhone 5s. If you're coming from iOS 10.0.1, iOS 10.0.2 and its bug fixes are certainly worth a look.
If you're coming from something older like iOS 8, make sure you grab a second or third opinion before making your move.
