This week Apple released the latest iOS update, version 16.3 for all compatible devices. As usual, Apple recommends that all users update their devices to ensure the best performance and security. Each update contains bug fixes and patches for known security flaws, in addition to feature updates and enhancements. When it comes to iOS 16.3 there are several notable changes.
Apple delivered iOS 16.1.2 to iPhone owners on Wednesday, just a week after the iOS 16.1.1 update rolled out. With iOS 16.1 only three weeks old, Apple continues to push improvements and bug fixes to all compatible devices. Anyone with the iPhone 8 or later should install iOS 16.1.2 right away for the best security and stability.
Apple officially listed the following support notes for iOS 16.1.2:
The latest slew of improvements, bug fixes, and new features was delivered to users this week. Apple rolled out iOS 16.1 to compatible devices, which can be installed directly on the iPhone using Settings -> General -> Software Update. There must be enough free storage on your iPhone to update, and the iPhone should be charging with over 50 percent battery power to start the process.
iOS 16.1 offers several reasons to update, besides the bug fixes and security patches normally found in iOS updates. Here are some of the highlights of iOS 16.1:
Most of the focus lately has been on iOS 16, Apple's latest iPhone operating system. Apple has also provided an important security update to iOS 15. This means that Apple has released two updates side-by-side, iOS 15.7 and iOS 16. iPhone owners can elect to install the iOS 15.7 patch or do a full upgrade to iOS 16.
Not running iOS 15? Apple has released an important security update for all devices with iOS 14 installed. There are many performance improvements and bug fixes included as well. While the update does not bring any new features to the table, it keeps iOS 14 secure by patching a number of security vulnerabilities. Whether your device is older or you've decided to postpone installing iOS 15, it's a good idea to keep iOS current.
