Apple rolled out iOS 16 earlier this week for the latest iPhone 14 series as well as select iPhone models. The first iPhone 14 orders that are scheduled to ship from today will feature iOS 16.0. Now, a 9To5Mac report states that Apple is releasing iOS 16.0.1 exclusively for the new iPhone 14 series. The latest update is said to arrive with bug fixes for the latest iPhone models.
The iPhone 14 series was set to receive the same iOS 16.0 version that was released earlier this week. However, that won’t be the case anymore. The latest iPhones will display a prompt while setting up the device for the very first time, asking users to download the iOS 16.0.1 update with build number 20A371.
According to the report, the iOS 16.0.1 release notes states that the update resolves issues with the migration process while setting up the new iPhones. Problems with photos as well as authentication issues were fixed with the latest update.
