Apple has released iOS 11.1, which includes fixes for two annoying bugs that appeared after the release of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max last month. The first bug causes the camera app to become unresponsive, while the second makes it necessary to hard reset your iPhone in order to access certain functions. Apple also says there are new emoji characters included in this update, but we’re sure they’ll disappoint you unless you’re into mythical creatures or unicorns or something.
The iPhone’s operating system, iOS, received an update from Apple on Thursday that addresses a number of flaws that surfaced during the debut of the iPhone 14 last week.
Although Apple frequently provides software patches following a phone launch due to faults that arise, a number of problems with the new iPhones were extensively reported in newspapers and on social media.
In example, iOS 16.0.2 resolves a problem where the camera would vibrate when trying to focus inside third-party apps like Snapchat and TikTok. Additionally, it resolves an issue with data transfer from an older iPhone to an iPhone 14. In these transfers, the new device’s display would occasionally be entirely black, necessitating a hard reset.
Apple also fixed an issue that caused a pop-up to repeatedly alert users that they were copying and pasting text. Initially believed to be a security feature, the bug was subsequently identified as a defect.
According to the software change log, Apple also resolved issues with voiceover and touch on older devices that would not respond.
Now is the time to download iOS 16.0.2. Through Settings > General > Software Update, it may be put in place. All versions of iOS 12 are compatible with this update.
It is highly recommended for all users who experienced any of the above issues to install this update immediately.
