It’s been over two months since we received an official iOS 16 public update for all compatible iPhone models. There were some notable bugs in the first release, but they were fixed in the next few updates.
iOS 16.1.1 is the latest iOS 16 update and iOS 16.2 beta 3 is available for testing.
So the big question is: when will the next iOS update come? Will it be iOS 16.1.2 or iOS 16? And when can we expect the release date of the next iOS update?
What’s the next iOS 16 update?
iOS 16.1.1 was released on November 9, 2022. It’s been more than two weeks. So we can expect the next iOS 16 update in the first or second week of December 2022.
As of now, we can expect Apple to release iOS 16.1.2 as the next iOS 16 update as iOS 16.2 is still in its third beta phase. However, Apple may surprise us with iOS 16.2.
We have tested iOS 16.2 beta 3 and it is really smooth and stable compared to the previous betas. In addition, some important features and functionalities have been added in the latest beta update. If things stay the same, we can also 16.2.
Therefore, it will be 16.1.1 or 16.2 and Apple will release it in the first or second week of December.
When is the next major iOS update coming?
If we talk about the next major release for iOS, it’s iOS 17.
Traditionally, iOS 17 will launch during Apple’s WWDC event in June 2023. However, it will be released in beta for developers and public testing for the first three months after launch.
According to the usual plans, the public update of iOS 17 will be released in September 2023, along with the launch of the iPhone 15.
