iOS 16.0.2 was Released last month with many bug fixes For iPhone 14 issues, excessive copy and paste permission prompts, and more. Now, indications are that Apple is planning to release iOS 16.0.3 with additional bug fixes.

iOS 16
Evidence of an upcoming iOS 16.0.3 update appeared in Mac rumors Analytics records, which has been a reliable indicator in the past.

There are several remaining iOS 16 bugs that we hope iOS 16.0.3 will address, including an issue with Low volume during CarPlay phone calls Developed with iPhone 14 Pro, Flickering display on some iPhone models when brightness is set to a low levela string of text that can cause the Mail app to crash, an error when trying to edit cinematic-mode videos captured on iPhone in Final Cut Pro and iMovie on a Mac, and more.

It’s not clear when Apple plans to release iOS 16.0.3, but our best guess is this week or next given that iOS 16.1 is expected later this month. iOS 16.1 features support for Live Activities in third-party apps, a new Clean Power charging option for US users, support for Matter accessories in the Home app, Apple Fitness+ without an Apple Watch, a battery percentage icon for additional iPhone models, and more.

There is a priority for successive iOS updates that focus on bug fixes. iOS 15.0.1 and iOS 15.0.2 were released 10 days apart last year, while iOS 11.0.2 and iOS 11.0.3 were released eight days apart after the iPhone 8 was launched in 2017.
