iOS 16 introduced a new privacy feature that requires apps to obtain a user’s permission before accessing their iPhone’s clipboard to paste text from other apps, but some users have experienced an issue that causes the signal to appear excessively.
According to wall street journalApple said it plans to address the issue in a software update that will be released next week. The news comes after an Apple executive informed MacRumors Reader that the clipboard permission prompt that appears every time a user tries to paste text from one app to another is “not expected behavior.”
The report states that the software update will also fix an issue with some iPhone 14 Pro models that would freeze after transferring data from another iPhone.
Apple hasn’t provided a version number for the upcoming software update, but it will likely be iOS 16.0. Earlier today, an Apple spokesperson confirmed that the update will fix an issue causing the rear camera to shake and vibrate on some iPhone 14 Pro models in third-party camera-enabled apps like Snapchat, TikTok and Instagram.
“We are aware of the issue and a fix will be issued next week,” informed an Apple spokesperson MacRumors earlier today. Apple did not provide any further details, but it is likely that the fix will be included in the iOS 16.0.
Overall, this means that the software update will have at least three major bug fixes.
