Install iOS 17.0.2 If You're Dealing with Problems
iOS 17.0.2 fixes a problem that may “prevent transferring data directly from another iPhone during setup.” That's obviously a pretty big issue so we recommend this update for most iPhone users.
New versions of iOS often fix unlisted issues as well. iOS 17.0.2 could fix performance issues like severe battery drain, busted Wi-Fi connectivity, UI lag, Bluetooth problems, random reboots, lockups and freezes, and various issues with first-party applications.
If you skipped an iOS 16 update, you will get the bug fixes from any updates you skipped with your version of iOS 17.0.2. Again, the fixes from the update(s) you skipped are baked into your upgrade.
