It was only yesterday when Apple released the fourth beta version of iOS 6.1, and now the company just rolled out iOS 6.0.2 for public consumption. With their continued efforts to improve the user experience in iOS 6, Apple continues to work behind the scenes by intensively testing the next big firmware update which is iOS 6.1. In contrast to iOS 6 betas which are only available for developers, the fruit company released a very minor firmware update in the form of iOS 6.0.2, available for the general public.
It is worth noting that iOS 6.0.2 is a firmware update especially made for two of Apple's newest devices, the iPhone 5 and iPad mini. As mentioned earlier, this is a very minor update which aims to fix a certain bug that could affect the WiFi capabilities of both devices. If you are someone who has been experiencing this sort of problem on your iPhone 5 or iPad mini, then you would be glad to know that Apple has already taken care of the issue.
Below is the official change log for iOS 6.0.2:
