Only two weeks after the release of iOS 16, Apple has released another follow-up update with iOS 16.0.2. The new version is supposed to fix significant camera problems on the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max under iOS 16.
Apple releases iOS 16.0.2
Shortly after the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shipped, numerous users complained of problems with the devices’ 48-megapixel main camera. Within apps such as Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok, many were unable to take photos and videos, for example.
According to the report, the smartphones’ camera would vibrate uncontrollably and spin around as soon as users accessed it within various apps. In some cases, the camera was even said to move around inside the case. Apple has now released an update with iOS 16.0.2 to fix the problems, which is also supposed to fix some other bugs.
iOS 16.0.2: Apple fixes annoying bugs
In addition to the camera issues on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, iOS 16.0.2 also fixes a bug in the setup process of the devices. According to reports, the screen remained black in some cases.
Apple also fixes a bug with the new software that caused problems with the VoiceOver function during touch input. According to Apple, security-relevant fixes do not seem to be necessary for iOS 16.0.2.
Only for the iPhone 14: iOS 16.0.1
With iOS 16.0.1, Apple has already released a first update for iOS 16. However, this version is an exclusive update for all iPhone 14 models. According to Apple, iOS 16.0.1 contains some important bug fixes. Among other things, the version is supposed to fix problems with the activation of iMessage and FaceTime.
In addition, photos that the iPhone 14 Pro Max has blurred in landscape mode should now be displayed correctly. Possible failures of authentication via single sign-on in company apps are supposed to be eliminated in turn.
