The audio issues on the iPhone 7 involving a problem with the Lightning EarPod’s volume control has been fixed via a new iOS 10 update.
According to CultofMac, iOS 10.0.2 was primarily released recently to fix a bug related to the glitch involving the EarPod’s volume control. The glitch made it impossible for users to activate Siri, answer phone calls or adjust volume.
Before the release of the new update, users had no choice but to unplug and then plug in the Earpods every time the glitch kicked in.
The new update also fixes other issues related to photos and app extensions. While most devices were not affected, Apple still decided to release the fix.
Among other problems, some iPhone users, especially iPhone 5s and 6 users have been complaining of extremely quick battery drains after they upgraded to iOS 10. However, the new update doesn’t seem to fix the battery quandary.
The update can be downloaded via an over-the-air update or by the use of iTunes.
