Update November 9: Apple has released iOS 16.1.1 update to iPhone users with build number 20B101. The update comes with bug fixes and security improvements. The next update will likely be iOS 16.2. If you’re an iPhone user, you can launch the Settings app> Tap on Software Update> Click on the “Download and Install” option when the iOS 16.1.1 build appears.
Original Story follows………..
The iOS 16 rollout was not smooth, with it being a bughouse for many users. iOS 16.1.1 might finally be the version that patches major bugs with the UI, like increased/ worsened standby drain, poor battery life, heating issues, Wi-Fi bugs, UI lags, and even app crashes, have been reported. While these bugs may be fixed with restarts, there were worse problems, like green tint and display issues post-updates.
iOS 16 is ruining Apple’s reputation of offering smooth and stable software with minimal bugs, and a very annoying bug is the persisting Wi-Fi issue. Many people have reported that their iPhones, after updating to iOS 16 or 16.1, randomly disconnect from Wi-Fi when left on standby for a couple of hours.
Several iPhone users have reported trouble connecting to Wi-Fi, with internet access being randomly cut off. Periodically or randomly, many reports say that their Wi-Fi connection is lost. This can get extremely annoying if you have backups or app updates in the background. If your mobile data is turned off, you might miss important messages and calls from apps like WhatsApp, Telegram, or Telegram.
According to MacRumors, signs of devices running iOS 16.1.1 were spotted in their website analytics. This indicates that the update is currently in testing and will see a launch soon. While there are no leaks or any official information about what this update may contain, we expect a fix for the persistently annoying Wi-Fi bug that several users have reported on many platforms, including Apple’s support page.
Other bugs users report are general UI lag, like slow spotlight search, for example, and jittery animations when swiping out of apps, worsened standby drain, etc., which might be addressed in the update and hopefully arrive very soon.
According to Mark Gurman (from Bloomberg) in his recent Power on Newsletters, Apple might launch the Emergency SOS via satellite feature in this update. This update might be iOS 16.1.1 since earlier predictions state this will probably be a “dot” update. There’s no sign yet of any “16.1.X” update, so we can assume that iOS 16.1.1 is scheduled to launch before December. This is not confirmed, though, since there’s a chance it might launch with 16.2, which is mostly coming out sometime in the middle of December.
According to reports, the Apple website for developers suggests an issue impacting its StoreKit Ad Network (SKAdNetwork) platform in iOS 16.1. According to web analytics data, the company said the problem would be cleared in a future update, even as the development of iOS 16.1.1 continues apace.
Heavy speculation about the launch of iOS 16.1.1 began because developers have reported issues impacting Apple’s Store Kit Ad Network (something related to individual app attributions and campaign tracking), which coincidentally matches rumors of internal testing of iOS 16.1.1. The succeeding 16.2 version will
According to reports, this iOS 16.1.1 update will focus on minor bug fixes and performance improvements. It’s implied that 16.1.1 will be a minor update focused on little performance gains and bug fixes. Moreover, we already have web analytic information for iOS 16.3, and according to 9To5Mac, it is scheduled to launch in February or March.
