Apple Releases IPhone Software 2.0.2

Two weeks after releasing iPhone OS 2.0.1, Apple Monday updated the iPhone software to version 2.0.2.

As with the 2.0.1 update, Apple says little about what exactly 2.0.2 does, other than a terse description that reads only "bug fixes." The update, which iPhone users will be prompted to download through iTunes when they plug in their devices, weighs in at 249MB when upgrading an iPhone 3G from 2.0.1 (updates for other models or from different software versions may have different sizes).

There have been numerous accounts of bugs and problems with the iPhone 2.0 software, and while the iPhone 2.0.1 update seemed to improve performance on some counts, many of the issues have persisted.
