There have been a number of complaints related to malfunctioning Wi-Fi connections on the iPhone 5, so this could be a welcome update for many users.

So far there's nothing about the iOS 6.0.2 update on Apple's "security updates" page, even though they refer us to it.

AT&T issue fixed too?

Hopefully this addresses the iOS 6.0.1 issue with AT&T iphones. See here for the issue: https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0

Thumb resize.

There is something awesome about deploying an OTA update to fix a wi-fi problem. Just sayin'.

No kidding. iOS6 trashed wifi for my wife's iPad2 (which 6.0.1 seems to have fixed), but the i5 has been great for me. I haven't looked into why, but it's much faster than my i4, on the same n wifi. Maxes out my 40Mb DSL.

Probably shouldn't upgrade.

If you can't get it right now, just use iTunes. I'm updating through iTunes right now.
