Apple has rolled out a new version of iOS for supported devices. iOS 16.1.1 can now be downloaded on all iOS 16 devices and comes with some important bug fixes. In particular, it seems that Apple has squashed the Wi-Fi bug that has been plaguing iPhone devices since the launch of iOS 16 in September. The bug sees users being randomly disconnected from Wi-Fi networks and failing to rejoin networks when they are in range of them.
Apple didn’t provide specific details on these so-called bug fixes. The patch notes simply detail the changes to include “bug fixes and security updates”. Users also suggest that Apple has fixed the advert issue in iOS 16.1.1 too. The issue resulted in adverts being shown across various placements on iPhone and iPad devices earlier than expected. The ads also contained gambling marketing of which Apple doesn’t support.

Apple has also yet to release the anticipated Emergency SOS via Sattelite feature on iPhone 14 devices. The feature was announced in September and comes on all iPhone devices. It allows you to contact emergency services through a secure satellite connection even if you don’t have any data or internet connection on your device. Unfortunately, the feature is only releasing in the United States at first. However, Apple says they will roll it out in other regions in the future.
It goes without saying that you should always have the latest version of iOS installed on your device for security purposes anyway. We can only hope Apple addresses the buggiest launch of iOS yet soon.
