iOS 16.1.1 is just a stability update according to some users, giving the users some minor bug fixes and performance improvements instead of introducing new features. But we expect Apple to release some omitted features that would be introduced with iOS 16, and now make their way with the iOS 16.2 update that we’ll receive shortly in mid-December.

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