Apple has rolled out a new iOS 16.1.2 update for its devices
Apple has released a new update for its devices, iOS 16.1.2, which includes substantial security updates and increases the reliability of the crash detection feature for users of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. This version is available for download now. TechCrunch reports that the tech giant has not yet released the nature of the security improvements. This is because the business does not divulge security issues until either they have been investigated or a fix has been implemented.
Additionally, the update features enhanced interoperability with wireless service providers. Apple has introduced a new function for its iPhone and Apple Watch users called “crash detection,” which has the ability to immediately call 911 if it detects that the user has been in a car accident. Users have reported incidents in which the crash detection system was triggered incorrectly while they were on roller coasters, despite the fact that this function has the ability to prevent fatalities in certain circumstances.
However, in October, Apple published the first iOS 16.2 beta to developers. Within this beta, the firm announced that it will enable users to email a report to the company if Emergency SOS has been triggered mistakenly. Apple will be able to access information about what took place after a notification alerting them to the event appears, which opens the Feedback Assistant.
“Did you intentionally trigger Emergency SOS on your iPhone?” the message reads.
In addition, if you want to upgrade to the most recent version of iOS, go into the settings of your iPhone. According to the report, after clicking “general,” you should notice a tab at the top of your screen labelled “software updates.” This item will enable you to check for new versions of the iOS operating system.
