Apple is set to release iOS 16 this fall, a new version of its mobile operating system. The update will be available for users with iPhone 8 and later models. It is likely to debut alongside the iPhone 14 series, which is expected to feature an always-on display.
The update will fix bugs related to WiFi and the advertising framework. Other issues with the operating system include stuttering animations in the iPhone 14 Pro and a slow Spotlight search. Apple also promises to address problems with battery drain.
The update will also bring a variety of other features, including the ability to edit and recover deleted messages. Users will also be able to mark messages as unread and recall them. Additionally, Apple will be bringing SharePlay to messaging. For those who want to send and receive photos with the same app, iOS 16 will have some great features.
Apple has also said that the update will fix several issues with Wi-Fi and advertising-related issues. The update is also expected to include an emergency assistance function via satellite. The satellite SOS feature will allow users to call emergency services when they’re out of range of Wi-Fi or cellular service.
The update will also fix several other security issues. The iOS 16.1 update addresses CVE-2022-42827, which allows attackers to execute code on an iOS device. Apple is aware of reports that the issue has been actively exploited.
Another major update coming this year will be Apple Pay. This feature will be available for qualifying users in the United States later this year. It will work with participating car brands and properties. Users with an iPhone 8 or later and an Apple Watch Series 4 will have the feature available.
This update will also address the advertising-related issue, which was reported by users. Apple says the update will be available this fall. Users should check their device for updates before downloading. If they don’t receive them in the coming weeks, it’s best to wait for iOS 16 to be released.
