Apple launched the latest version of their mobile operating system for all users on Wednesday, and we’ve compiled a list of all iOS 16.1.2 features for you. The new update increases the dependability of the Crash Detection function for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro users. Apple claims that it also improves interoperability with cellular providers.
What are the new iOS 16.1.2 features?
According to Apple, iOS 16.1.2 features include critical security fixes. The following are the complete release notes for the update:
This update provides important security updates and the following enhancements for your iPhone:
- Improved compatibility with wireless carriers
- Crash Detection optimizations on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models
When an iPhone 14 model detects an automobile collision, Crash Detection will automatically summon an emergency service. A month ago, though, a tiny number of customers claimed that the feature was accidentally activated while they were on a roller coaster. Apple subsequently clarified that the function detects crashes using G-force sensors mixed with other data, although the company admitted that G-force on a roller coaster may deceive the system.
It’s unclear how Apple improved Crash Detection in iOS 16.1.2, but given that the feature is reliant on algorithms that detect possible automobile wrecks, Apple is most likely tweaking the system to make those algorithms more accurate. iOS 16.0.2’s build number is 20B110. iOS 16.1.1, version number 20B101, was published on November 9 and included bug fixes and security improvements. Users may now upgrade their smartphones to the latest iOS version by visiting to the Settings app’s Software Update option. It’s worth mentioning that this update is solely for iPhones, therefore iPadOS 16.1.2 isn’t available.
Following the release of iOS 16.1.2 yesterday, the next software update for iPhone owners will be iOS 16.2. This update is presently being tested by developers as well as public beta users. It offers a slew of new features and tweaks, including Apple’s new Freefrom collaboration tool, Home app enhancements, and more. It is scheduled for release in mid-December.
Apple introduced a lot of new things with the latest operating system and iOS 16.1.2 features are a welcome addition to those.
