Apple has released another minor update that includes several bug fixes, similar to last weeks iOS 9.0.1 update. The iOS 9.0.2 update is currently being seeded to users.
The iOS 9 public release didn’t go as smooth as Apple expected. There were plenty of problems with the new firmware and it even left several users with a bricked iOS device and unable to update. Some users who were able to update to iOS 9, complained of lag and slow performance.
All of the above issues were patched in the iOS 9.0.1 update, which was released to the public last week. In iOS 9.0.2, Apple continues to fix more bugs, such as, failure to activate iMessage for certain users.

- Fixes an issue with the setting to toggle cellular data usage
- Resolved an issue that prevented iMessage activation for some users
- Resolves an issue where an iCloud Backup could be interrupted after starting a manual backup
- Fixes an issue where the screen could incorrectly rotate when receiving notifications
Apart from fixes the aforementioned issues, the new update also improves the stability of podcasts. iOS 9.0.2 is currently available as an OTA update for those running iOS 9.
