After releasing iOS 15.7 and iOS 16.0 earlier this week, Apple has begun distributing yet another iOS upgrade. While iOS 16.0.1 is only available on the new iPhone 14 series, the next two updates are accessible for the iPhone 8, iPhone X, and after that. All iPhone 14 models, according to Apple, will automatically identify iOS 16.0.1 and provide users the choice to install it before completing the initial setup.
Therefore, users of the iPhone 14 shouldn’t have to set up their handsets just to find a software update waiting for them once they get to their home screens. Apple advises users to install iOS 16.0.1 as soon as possible on an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Max Pro. According to Apple’s changelog, iOS 16.0.1 corrects a problem that occurred during setup that also hampered data migration when activating the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. Additionally, iOS 16 might have issues authenticating single sign-on enterprise apps; this issue should be resolved in iOS 16.0.1.
Additionally, zooming in landscape mode on the iPhone 14 Pro Max should no longer cause images to seem grainy. The name of iOS 16.0.1 hints that it does not include any features. Apple will instead wait until iOS 16.1, whose first developer beta it has already released, to introduce any new features. According to a report, “Clean Energy Charging” has been included in iOS 16.1. According to Apple, this feature enables compatible iPhones to reduce their carbon footprint by “selectively charging when reduced carbon emission electricity is available.”
Separately, Apple has made the Apple Wallet app deleteable and enabled the battery percentage icon on the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini. A new standard for smart home accessories called Matter, which aims to maximize platform compatibility, also made an early appearance in iOS 16.1. Additionally, Apple has included its Live Activities API, which is necessary to grant outside apps access to the Dynamic Island. Both of these changes have been made to the lock screen. The release date for iOS 16.1 has not yet been announced by Apple, but we anticipate that it will begin rolling out in October.
