Apple Suddenly Releases Update to Fix Major iPhone Issues
Apple just released iOS 16.0.2, and it’s a quick but timely update. Here’s everything you need to know.
When Apple released iOS 16, it became apparent that updates were needed. Unprecedented follow-up came for iPhone 14 users, but it wasn’t enough.
Indeed, some users have reported camera issues on the iPhone 14 Pro, such as when taking photos using third-party apps such as TikTok or Instagram. The most serious were camera shake (which isn’t good if you want your hardware to stay intact) and blurry photos.
And then there was another problem: copying and pasting between apps could result in a frankly very annoying pop-up asking permission to paste. Just when you didn’t need it. Now iOS 16.0.2 is here to fix these issues.

Which iPhones can run iOS 16.0.2?
Although iOS 16 runs all iPhones from iPhone 8 onwards, this update mainly concerns the iPhone 14 series and the serious issues that have arisen. However, it’s not just for these phones: there are fixes for issues on iPhones from iPhone X onwards.
How to get it
Updating is very simple: open the Settings app on the device, then choose General, then Software update. Once you click download and install, it will do everything for you. It’s a small update and quickly downloaded. On an iPhone 14 Pro Max, it downloaded in about seven minutes and installed in another 12 minutes.
What’s in the version
The fixes are there. Apple says this will fix the issue of vibrating lenses and blurry photos on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
If you find that the screen goes black while setting up the device, this update is for you. And if you’ve had extremely annoying endless permission requests when copying and pasting between apps, this update has you covered.
VoiceOver disappeared after reboot for some users, so hopefully that will be fixed here.
And this update is here to fix an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone X, iPhone XR and iPhone 11 screens. This happened after a particular set of circumstances, specifically after the device has been repaired.
