The iPhone 14 series is getting a new iOS 16 update to fix two big features that Apple proudly advertised. Here are all the details.
iPhone 14 is getting a special iOS 16 update ahead of the long-awaited iOS 16.2 update. The iPhone 14 series has been around since September 2022 and users around the world have been reporting weird bugs ever since. Apple has been busy fixing the bugs and issues with software patches. Meanwhile, it also released new features of iOS 16 in the iOS 16.1 patch, adding a universal battery meter to all iPhone models. Now there is a new patch for the iPhone 14 models.
Apple has now released the iOS 16.1.2 update for all iPhones currently running iOS 16.1. While the update applies to all iPhone models, the effects will only be visible on the iPhone 14 series, which includes iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Here are all the improvements you can expect from the iOS 16.1.2 update.
iOS 16.1.2 update brings new features
The patch note for iOS 16.1.2 update lists two major changes as part of this release. First of all, the new update will improve the compatibility of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models with different wireless carriers. The crash detection feature on the iPhone 14 series is now also expected to improve with this update. Furthermore, the update also promises to fix some known bugs and issues.
Not sure which one
There has been a huge demand for the iPhone 14 series lately, especially the Pro variants. Supply chain restrictions and worker protests in China have only compounded Apple’s problems. The Pro variants offer all new features such as the new 4nm A16 Bionic chip, a Dynamic Island design for the notch, a new camera system led by a 48MP sensor and a new 12MP ultrawide camera, and a more energy efficient OLED display. The Pro Max variant then offers a larger 6.7-inch screen and a larger capacity battery.
