Apple just released iOS 16.0.2, which is a quick but timely update. That’s all you need to know.
When Apple released iOS 16, it became clear that updates were needed. An unprecedented early follow-up to iPhone 14 users came, but that wasn’t enough.
That’s because some users have reported camera issues on the iPhone 14 Pro, for example, when taking photos using third-party apps like TikTok or Instagram. The most serious were camera shakes (which isn’t good if you want your hardware to stay pristine) and blurry photos.
Then there was another issue: copying and pasting between apps can cause a very annoying popup asking for permission to paste. Only when you don’t need it. Now, iOS 16.0.2 is here to solve these issues.

What iPhones Can Run iOS 16.0.2?
Although iOS 16 powers all iPhones from iPhone 8 onwards, this update is mostly for iPhone 14 series and serious issues that have arisen. However, it’s not just mobile phones: there are fixes for problems found on iPhones from iPhone X onwards.
How to get it
The update is very simple: open the Settings app on the device and then choose General, then Software Update. Once you click download and install, it will do everything for you. It’s a small update and downloads quickly. On the 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 address lens flicker and blurry photos on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
If you find the screen will go black while setting up the device, then this update is for you. And if you have endless annoying requests for permission when copying and pasting between apps, this update has you covered.
VoiceOver disappeared after rebooting for some users, so hopefully this is fixed here.
And this update is here to sort out an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone X, iPhone XR, and iPhone 11 screens. This happened after a certain set of circumstances, especially after servicing the device.
