Apple Preparing iOS 16.1.1 as Widespread Wi-Fi Bug Persists

Apple is preparing an iOS 16.1.1 update for iPhone to fix bugs and issues users experienced after the first major update of the iOS 16 operating system two weeks ago, including a persistent Wi-Fi error that caused “iPhone “-Annoys customers.

iOS 16
MacRumors Over the past week, our website analytics have been showing signs of devices running iOS 16.1.1, suggesting the update is being tested at Apple and could be rolling out in the near future. While it’s unclear what the update will include, it’s possible it could fix a common and persistent Wi-Fi bug that has been impacting users. The bug causes a user’s “iPhone” to randomly disconnect from Wi-Fi when left in sleep mode, e.g. B. overnight or in other situations.

Along with fixing the Wi-Fi bug, Apple could address longstanding user complaints since the September launch of “iOS 16,” including reports of battery drain, slow Spotlight searches, and laggy animations on iPhone 14 Pro models when swiping out of apps. For new features, iOS 16.1.1 could include Emergency SOS via Satellite for iPhone 14 and ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ models.

BloombergMark Gurman recently said in his Power On newsletter that Apple will likely release emergency SOS via satellite via a dot update to “iOS 16” in November, which may turn out to be iOS 16.1.1. MacRumors has not seen any sign of another iOS 16.1.X update in our analyzes at the time of writing. Apple has yet to provide any concrete information on when emergency satellite SOS will be available to users, other than to say in November.

Apple is currently publicly testing iOS 16.2 and iPadOS 16.2 with developers and members of the public beta program. iOS 16.2 is slated to launch in mid-December.
