Two weeks after the introduction of iOS 16.1, which included support for the iCloud Shared Photo Library, Matter, Live Activities, and more, Apple today published iOS 16.1.1 and iPadOS 16.1.1, which are minor bug fixes. On compatible iPhones and iPads, the iOS 16.1.1 and iPadOS 16.1.1 upgrades may be downloaded over the air by navigating to Settings > General > Software Update.
iOS 16.1.1 Is Ready To Be Downloaded
According to Apple’s release notes, iOS 16.1.1 corrects a few unidentified faults that iPhone customers have been experiencing. For instance, a broad Wi-Fi problem has affected users. Some users were unable to maintain connections to their Wi-Fi networks due to the unpredictable disconnections caused by the Wi-Fi issue.
Since Apple did not give a detailed list of bug patches and merely stated that the update “includes bug fixes and security upgrades,” it is unclear whether the Wi-Fi flaw has been resolved.
The update iOS 16.2 will come after iOS 16.1.1, and it is now undergoing beta testing with a December release date anticipated. The Freeform app, a redesigned Home app architecture, and other enhancements are included in iOS 16.2. Only the iPhone 8 model and after, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 3rd generation and later, iPad 5th generation and later, and iPad mini 5th generation and later are compatible with the latest update.
According to recent reports, Apple is preparing to roll out iOS 16.2, the follow-up update to the iOS 16 operating system, which could happen in mid-December.
