Apple today released iOS 16.0.2, addressing a number of bugs that iPhone 14 owners have been experiencing since the new devices were launched. iOS 16.0.2 arrives two weeks after the launch of iOS 16, and follows iOS 16.0.1, an update made available to iPhone 14 owners on launch day. The update is available for all iPhones that are capable of running iOS 16.
The iOS 16.0.2 update can be downloaded over-the-air on eligible iPhones by going to Settings > General > Software Update.
According to Apple’s release notes, iOS 16.0.2 addresses several bugs that are affecting iPhone 14 models and other iPhones running iOS 16. It addresses an issue that can cause the camera to vibrate and vibrate in third-party camera apps, it fixes a bug that causes popups to be copied and pasted over and over, and it’s more of a problem. Fixes which causes the display to appear black during setup.
It also fixes an issue that caused some iPhone X, XR, and iPhone 11 models to become unresponsive after updating to iOS 16 with the changed display. Below are Apple’s release notes for the update:
– This update provides bug fixes and important security updates for your iPhone including the following:
– Camera may vibrate and produce blurry photos when shooting with some third-party apps on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
– Display may appear completely black during device setup
– Copy and paste between apps may cause the permission prompt to appear longer than expected
– VoiceOver may be unavailable after reboot
– Addresses an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone X, iPhone XR, and iPhone 11 displays after being serviced
All these bugs were found shortly after the launch of the new iPhones. The camera vibration issue is one of the more serious bugs as it causes the rear camera to vibrate uncontrollably while filming videos in apps like Snapchat, TikTok and Instagram. The stock camera app is not affected, and until now, there was no fix or solution.
As for the copy and paste bug, Apple confirmed this was not normal behavior last week. Apps should not ask permission to access the clipboard with every single paste attempt, and this issue has already been addressed in the iOS 16.1 beta.
Apple is already working on iOS 16.1, which will be released in October alongside iPadOS 16.1.
