Apple has now released another supplemental update, iOS 7.0.2 for all the iOS compatible devices.

Apple's much awaited iOS 7 was unveiled on Sept. 18 just before iPhone5S and iPhone5C hit the markets. iOS 7's release was then followed by an update, iOS 7.0.1 for the newly launched smartphones.

The main purpose of releasing this new update was to fix the bug on Apple's newly launched phones, which permitted any person to gain access to iOS applications even with the presence of the fingerprint scanner, reported Redmond Pie.

The security flaw gave access to all the applications and the user data on the device through the new Control Center. The Cupertino-based company reportedly started working on the issue as soon as it was reported and the update was released on Sept. 26.

Another feature that has been added with the update is the capability to use a Greek keyboard while typing the passcode, which was not present in the initial update. There was another screen lock bug that allowed anyone to make a call from a locked screen that killed the idea of emergency call feature. The intruder could make call to any number rather than calling on the emergency numbers fed by the device's owner.

 The iOS users can now update their iOS 7 by downloading the update on iTunes, or using the OTA feature within the iPhone, iPad or iPod's settings pane.

The new update is compatible with iPhone5S, iPhone5C, iPhone5, iPhone4S, iPhone4, iPad (second generation and the above variants), iPad Mini and iPod Touch (5th generation).
