Trending: New security service from Cloudflare hopes to kill the VPN once and for all

iphone5goldA little more than a week after releasing iOS 7, Apple has now released iOS 7.0.2, an incremental update to the company’s mobile operating system that addresses a security flaw on the lock screen.

If you want to download the update right away, open your iPhone or iPad’s Settings app, and then navigate to General > Software Update. Fair warning: even though this is a fairly minor release, it’s still possible that you could experience a problem with the update that could require you to restore from a backup.
