Apple recently rolled out the iOS 16.2 update and there is a lot of confusion among users about the problem of installing this update or leaving their iPhones on the previous software update. It is not easy to decide as there are many factors to consider in this area. But don’t worry folks, I’m here to clear your confusion, and by keeping in mind all the pros and cons of iOS 16.2, I’ll let you know whether or not you should update your iPhone to iOS 16.2.
There are not many bugs reported by the users after the release of iOS 16.2, but many users are facing data usage after the update.
“The only way to fix this is to factory wipe the device. I’ve had to do this several times. iOS 16.1.1 has significantly reduced my system data, down to 4GB. iOS 16.1.2 has reset my system data bloated to consume 211 GB of the 256.
While iOS 16.2 didn’t bring any major bug issues, it still hasn’t fixed the previous update bugs that came with iOS 16. With iOS 16.2, Apple releases only 2 bug fixes for improved compatibility and car crash detection.
“This update provides important security updates and the following improvements for your iPhone:- Improved wireless carrier compatibility, Crash Detection optimizations on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models.”
Apart from the bug fixes, Apple has released a series of security updates and all information about these security updates is still not released by Apple.
iOS 16.2 also brings 5G support for iPhones in India, which is something to look forward to. Apart from the fact that the highly anticipated freeform app has been released, this application has been long overdue. And we can’t forget about the advanced data protection that Apple has to offer. It will help users protect their data even in the event of a data breach.
If you’re coming from iOS 16 or iOS 16.1, there’s no reason not to upgrade to iOS 16.2. While this update has no major upgrade other than proving 5G support and the freeform app, it is still worth downloading especially since no major bug issue has been reported since the release of iOS 16.2. And we can’t forget to give most credit to advanced data protection as it is the most useful thing in this update to provide the users with the privacy and security they deserve. If there are no major bugs and issues, that doesn’t mean iOS 16.2 is bug free as there is still an issue carried over from iOS 16 that needs to be fixed.
If you take my advice, there is no reason to wait for the next major update or to wait for the update with more features, because the bigger the update, the bigger the problems. So go ahead and take advantage of the iOS 16.2 software update without worrying whether you have to wait or not. This is the right time!
