Apple’s iOS 16.0.3 update includes bug fixes and improvements

Apple has officially released the iOS 16.0.3 update and it comes just a few weeks after the iOS 16 update and a few days after the release of the iPhone 14 Plus. According to the company’s release notes, the iOS 16.0.3 update will address a number of bugs that iPhone users were having over the course of the past few weeks. The new update will address bugs on certain iPhone 14 models including not delivering incoming calls and notifications, camera issues, and more.

Changelog for the iOS 16.0.3 update

The new iOS 16.0.3 update will come with a lot of bug fixes and important security updates for your devices including –

  • Fix for incoming calls and app notifications might be delayed or not get delivered on iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • Fix for the issue where the camera was slow to launch or switch between different modes on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • The update will fix the low mic volume occurring during CarPlay phone calls on iPhone 14 Series
  • Fixed the issue where mail was crashing on launch after receiving a malformed email

The CarPlay bug was causing iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users to experience low volume levels when they were attempting to make a hands-free phone call in a vehicle. This bug was causing the person making phone calls to sound quiet or far away when speaking, making them slightly difficult to hear.

The camera issue saw users reporting delays of up to 4-5 seconds before the Camera app started working after launch in some cases. There was also a persistent display flickering issue, causing iPhone owners who upgraded to iOS 16 to see flickering in dark areas of the display when the iPhone is set to low brightness, but it is unclear if the issue is addressed in this update.
