ios 7.0.2 released changes log
Apple released iOS 7 on September 18, 2013. iOS 7 is said to be the single largest change to the iOS system since it was initially released in 2008 with the original iPhone. Given its huge number of changes, it is not surprising that there have sneaked in bugs in the iOS release. Among more serious bugs are security loopholes that allows a hacker to bypass the lock screen and gain access to photos to share them in e-mails and social media. Also, it was just recently demonstrated that it is possible to place regular phone calls without unlocking the phone.

The recent release of iOS 7.0.2 remedies these security loopholes and in addition fixes a bug that caused Safari to crash occasionally as well as reintroducing the Greek keyboard option for passcode entry. The full changelog, which is relatively brief for this point release, is given below.
