IOS 10.0.2 Is Released, Fixes IPhone 7 EarPod IssueBy cheatmaster 10:37 Thu, 05 Aug 2021 Comments
Apple is now rolling out a fix for the problems that some were having with the iPhone 7 and the lightning EarPods that came with the phone. The controls on the Earpods were spontaneously activing on their own, causing songs to play/pause, skip, and Siri going off on its own. This was happening with both the headphone adapter, and the recent ones with a lightning plug.
@scttor @siracusa @atpfm this seems to happen with my lightning EarPods as well, not just adapted 3.5mm headphones— Michael Cailler (@michaelcailler) September 18, 2016
The update also squashes a couple of other bugs relating to the Photos app crashing and another bug that didn’t allow some app extensions to become enabled.
The update is now out and can be installed by going into the Settings > General > Software Update. Depending on what version you are updating from, the update is anywhere between 30 Mega Bytes (MB) and 60 MB.
