Do I need to upgrade to iOS 16.0.2?

Users have finally got their hands on the new iOS 16 for their iPhone device. If you own an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max , iPhone SE 2, iPhone SE 3, iPhone 12 small, iPhone 12 , iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max or iPhone 13 series, you can download iOS 16.0.2. Many users are still confused about whether to install iOS 16.0.2 or not because there are fixes for this update but it also comes with a different set of issues and bugs. In today’s article, we’ll show you both sides of the iOS 16.0.2 update and leave it up to you to decide whether you should install this update or not.

Some of the benefits you should know while upgrading to iOS 16.0.2:

Many problems and bugs caused the iPhone device to malfunction. To try and fix the issues, Apple has not wasted time in releasing the iOS 16.0.2 update to make some good changes in this software update.

When shooting with some third-party applications on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, the camera may shake resulting in blurry photos. It is said that these camera bugs will be fixed with the iOS 16.0.2 update. This update fixes an issue where the screen appeared completely black during device setup. Fixes an issue where copying and pasting between applications may have resulted in more permission prompts than planned. This update fixes an issue where Voice Over may become inaccessible after a reboot. After servicing, certain iPhone X, iPhone XR, and iPhone 11 screens stopped responding to touch input.

Some cons you should know before upgrading to iOS 16.0.2:

Unfortunately, the iOS 16.0.2 update shows several bugs and issues than expected. Oversensitive brightness levels, visual latency when using the Apple HDMI Lightning connector, login issues, and significant touch response issues — especially for individuals who haven’t experienced them before — are some of them. Upgraders also note that the update does not fix the camera shake bug it was designed for. It’s ironic because the update is supposed to fix this problem.

While iOS 16.0.2’s release notes state that the update contains critical security improvements, Apple’s official security website states that the release does not contain patches. This is the first time we’ve heard of iOS release notes being deceptive.

If you are experiencing bugs and/or performance issues on iOS 16.0.1 or iOS 16.0, you should install the iOS 16.0.2 update on your iPhone now. If you are upgrading from iOS 16.0 or iOS 16.0.1 , the iOS 16.0.2 upgrade is quite minor. For devices upgrading from earlier versions of iOS 16, it should be within the 250MB range. The size may differ depending on the iPhone model you are using.

If you follow our advice, if you have more problems than you thought, we recommend that you go for the iOS 16.0.2 update, but if you are skeptical about it, wait a few days to see if the bugs and issues are fixed by Apple or not.

Until next time, with another topic. Until then, Toodles.
