There is also no fixed solution. single user Says Turning off location services for networks and wireless resolved the issue (Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System services). However, it didn’t work for others, and even a full network settings reset didn’t seem to make a difference.

Update 02/11: Another issue with iOS 16 appeared in Apple’s Accessibility service. Detected by AppleVissome users are reporting a VoiceOver error that causes random contacts to be called from the user’s contact list.

“When I open the phone app, and go into recent calls, I used to tap and look for the person who called me, and tap twice to call them back,” the Umbro poster explains. “Beginning with iOS 16, VoiceOver is calling a random person, instead of the person you chose…I understand this problem happens randomly, but I’m asking you to please investigate because it’s serious and embarrassing.”

At this point, it’s unclear how widespread it is or when it first appeared, but comments say this has happened several times since upgrading to iOS 16.1.

[Note: those upgrading from iOS 15 to iOS 16 are also reporting the problem. When you do this, you will be upgraded to the latest version of iOS 16 (which is currently iOS 16.1), despite the update being labelled as ‘iOS 16’.]

The problem was first reported reddit More than two months ago, but more reports are coming since iOS 16.1 was released one week ago. The iPhone 13 Pro Max appears to be affected more than other models, with affected users seeing either “Face ID not available, try setting up Face ID later” or instructions to adjust the position of your face, regardless of the correct position.

The issue was also reported on Apple Support CommunityThe user describes the problem as follows:

“I updated to 16.1 on Monday and today my Face ID no longer works, restarted, it erased, now I can’t register Face ID. I am able to put my face in the box but it tells me to put my iPhone on the bottom or top. I tried to modify the iPhone but to no avail “.

In response, 21 other users noted “I have this question too”.

This follows a pattern in recent years where the company has tended to push for fixes (not always included in release notes) without prior acknowledgment of their existence.

Either way, add this to the long list of problems with a file Rocky iOS 16 launch.

At this point, it’s still unclear how widespread the issue is, but there’s enough activity across social media and the Apple forum to suggest a needed fix ASAP. Adding to the problem, iOS 16.1 is a file Feature-packed version with more than 20 security patcheswhich makes it a compelling update.

However, for anyone still running iOS 15, the Newly released iOS 15.7.1 It has the same critical spots and is significantly more stable. I have contacted Apple regarding these discoveries and will update this article if/when I receive a response.
