Apple sent the iOS 16.1 update to developers two days after the public release of iOS 16.0. If you are a registered Apple developer, you can download this release from the software updates section. Apple released a slew of new software this week, the most recent of which is iOS 16.1 Public, which follows the recent release of the first developer beta of iOS 16.1.
This week also saw the release of iOS 16 and watchOS 9, both of which include some of the features that should be included in the iOS 16 software update. Some of these features have been delayed for launch and will now be included in iOS 16.1 when it is released.
Users expect that with the iOS 16.1 updates, we may get the features that were left out when iOS 16 was officially released to the public. The features announced at the WWDC event are not included in iOS 16, so people assume iOS 16.1 will have the remaining features. This includes the Live Activities feature, the Live Activities API for developers, the iCloud Shared Photo Library, and the recently announced Clean Energy Charging feature. Under the iPhone battery section, iOS 16.1 has already added a switch for the Clean Energy Charging feature. This feature aims to reduce the iPhone’s carbon footprint by only charging it when low-carbon electricity is available. Under iOS 16.1, the iPhone learns your charging routine and charges the battery before you need it, while also trying to use low-carbon electricity.
Another change discovered in iOS 16.1 is that most likely with this update you can delete the Wallet app, in the early update Wallet app was built and you had no option to remove it from your iPhone. This is most likely due to antitrust issues over Apple Pay. Apple has finally added battery percentage support to iPhone models, which was missing in iOS 16.0. This includes the models; iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 11 and iPhone XR.
When will iOS 16.1 be released?
iOS 16.1 is expected to be released to the public in October, most likely along with the release of iPadOS 16.1. All we can do is wait until October for the public release of iOS 16.1, which will bring all the fixes and fixes for current bugs and glitches that came with the iOS 16 software update.
Until next time, with another topic. Until then, Toodles.
