After initially making it available to the four recently released iPhone 15 models, Apple is now offering a new and updated iOS 17.0.2 update to all iOS 17-compatible units. There are no further details to reveal what things are added to the latest version of the update, but it is likely a continuous move from Apple to fix the data transfer bug customers are experiencing in their new iPhone 15 handsets. 

All the iPhone 15 models are shipped with the first version of iOS 17 in them. However, the new OS version has an issue, causing the iPhone 15 smartphones to have an interrupted transfer process during setup. As shared by different users online, having the setup and transfer process without first downloading the iOS 17.0.2 could result in the screen being stuck in the Apple logo.

As such, Apple advised its users to first install the update on their iPhone 15. Conversely, the company also provided the following instructions if iPhone 15 customers find the reminder late and get stuck with the logo screen:

  1. Connect your new iPhone to a computer with a cable.
  2. Press and quickly release the volume up button. Press and quickly release the volume down button. Then, press and hold the side button.
  3. Continue to hold while the Apple logo appears and don’t let go until an image of a computer and cable appears.
  4. On your computer, locate your new iPhone in the Finder or in iTunes.
  5. Choose Restore when you see the option to Restore or Update.

Despite these earlier solutions, however, it seems the problem continues across new iPhone 15 owners, pushing the giant to implement the iO 17.0.2 to all the iPhone models eligible for the iOS 17 update.

The refreshed update has a new build, moving from the former 21A350 number to 21A351 today. As for the release notes, the details remain the same, noting it resolves the issue that could “prevent transferring data directly from another iPhone during setup.” To install the software update, Go to Settings > General > Software Update.
