    Apple has released an iOS update for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, bringing the iOS version for those devices up to 6.0.2. The release notes for the iPhone note only that an unnamed Wi-Fi bug has been fixed.

    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.

    iOS 6.0.1 was released on November 1, with the fourth beta of iOS 6.1 released just yesterday.

    Update: Many users are reporting difficulties downloading iOS 6.0.2, with attempts at over-the-air updates simply yielding errors. Users updating through iTunes appear to be having more success, although even then it may take several attempts.

    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.

    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.
