Following months of beta testing and the June 6 WWDC keynote announcement of its major yearly operating system update, Apple released iOS 16 for iPhones on September 12, 2022, and iPadOS 16.1 on October 24. Even though iOS 16 has already received a tonne of new features, Apple is still working on adding more.
We’ll cover all you need to know about iOS 16 and how it will change how you use your iPhone and iPad in this article. We discuss any problems and flaws users are finding with the new program, as well as new features and design revisions.
iOS 16: Most recent release
On October 24, iOS 16.1 became available for download, about a month after iOS 16.0. In addition to the iCloud Shared Photo Library and Matter support for smart home accessories, iOS 16.1 also adds choices for Clean Energy Charging, the ability to delete the Wallet app, and enhancements to the battery percentage indicator, which will now appear on more iPhones.
The most recent iteration of iOS 16 prior to iOS 16.1 was iOS 16.0.3, which was released on October 11. That was simply a modest update that resolved a few issues with the iPhone 14 as well as the delayed Camera app startup, the lack of display of incoming calls and app alerts, the low microphone volume in CarPlay, and the Mailjack bug in an essential security remedy. When opening a mail from an account that was incorrectly formatted, the Mailjack bug resulted in an unending sequence of crashes.
The September 22 release of iOS 16 was the preceding upgrade. iOS 16.0.2 included a fix for the camera shaking issue that iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max users had been encountering, as well as a fix for the bug that affected many iOS 16 users: a new prompt to allow an app to paste from the clipboard was appearing with each attempt to paste, rather than just the first time. The update also resolves the following problems: during device setup, the display might look entirely black; after a reboot, VoiceOver might not work; and on some iPhones, touch input might become unresponsive.
You can also get a special update if you own an iPhone 14-series device: According to Apple’s support page, iOS 16.0.1 (build number 20A371) addressed a problem with activation and migration during setup that is exclusive to iMessage and FaceTime. The iOS 16.0.1 upgrade was made just for the iPhone 14 and will not appear in Software Update on other iPhones, according to Apple’s release notes.
