Apple is on a mission to not become the next “Samsung”! It has resolved “almost” all the issues regarding an unexpected shutdown of the phones in its latest iOS 10.2.1 update.
“With iOS 10.2.1, Apple made improvements to reduce occurrences of unexpected shutdowns that a small number of users were experiencing with their iPhone,” Apple said in a statement to TechCrunch.
“iOS 10.2.1 already has over 50 percent of active iOS devices upgraded, and the diagnostic data we’ve received from upgraders shows that for this small percentage of users experiencing the issue, we’re seeing a more than 80 percent reduction in iPhone 6s and over 70 percent reduction on iPhone 6 of devices unexpectedly shutting down.”
The company stated, “We also added the ability for the phone to restart without needing to connect to power if a user still encounters an unexpected shutdown. It is important to note that these unexpected shutdowns are not a safety issue, but we understand it can be an inconvenience and wanted to fix the issue as quickly as possible. If a customer has any issues with their device they can contact AppleCare.” (Image- Twitter/Brianna Olivas)
