Most people who update their existing iPhones to iOS 16.0 will be busy customizing their new lock screens and exploring all the useful features of the new operating system. But if you’ve preordered or are planning to buy a new iPhone 14, you should update to iOS 16.0.1 right away to avoid installation issues.
Apple is only releasing an update for iPhone 14 to fix a bug that causes activation and migration issues. Since this update is part of setting up the new iPhone, users won’t face any issues as long as they apply the fix quickly.
The iOS 16.0.1 update also fixes a few more issues related to photos appearing soft when zooming in landscape mode on the iPhone 14 Pro Max and authentication for Enterprise single sign-on apps.
The iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be available for general purchase starting Friday, September 16. The iPhone 14 Plus will be available from October 7.
It’s important to remember that while Apple may issue automatic security updates on devices running iOS 16, the aforementioned bugs are system issues and users will need to update their phones manually.
With new iPhones and iOS 16 out now, users will be eagerly awaiting the next batch of updates originally announced at WWDC: the delayed iPadOS 16 update, iOS 16.1 update that will bring shared photo library and live activities, and hopefully, Apple’s promising collaboration app Freeform.
