The iOS 10.2 update may not be all good, but it certainly is not considerably all bad as well. There were a few mishaps reported recently surrounding the update, and with users allegedly speaking out on the flaws, there are those that defend the phone's patch with the positives alike.

A long beta period for the iOS 10.2 update became the matter of controversy to many, and more so when it finally hit the mobile devices. Sadly, Apple has been known by some if not all as one to make mess out of the updates being laid out for the masses.

Recent reports noted that the iOS 10.2 update dons the HomeKit sensor being improved at one point, supporting more devices and aspects alike. These include doors locks, lights, thermostats, occupancy, motion, window coverings and/or detectors, carbon monoxide, water leak sensors, smoke and switches as well. Such can be activated with an app and Siri respectively.

Despite the privileges that the iOS 10.2 provides users, there are those that defend and rely more on the affordable devices to secure their household feats. Recent reports claim that it would be more beneficial to use them in terms of overall security, rather than a single hand-held device on its own.

It was also a raised concern that the iOS 10.2 did not meet the expectations of many in terms of versatility and utilizable changes. The battery life was said to not withstand too long of usage-worse, even an idle or standby mode drains the power rapidly. The same can be said for the Bluetooth performance which many have forwarded their addresses, leaving users with no choice but to downgrade their units to the iOS 10.1.1 or earlier.
