We’re currently using iOS 16.0.2 – a newer version of iOS 16 – that was released last month.

It included a load of bug fixes to help you better enjoy your i phone.

Now tech blog MacRumors has uncovered details of an iOS 16.0.3 software update in its own website analytics – tracking visitors to the page.

That may mean the new update is being tested internally at Mela HQ.

Sadly the exact details of what’s inside the iOS 16.0.3 remain a mystery.

iPhone owners have reported some strange bugs in recent weeks – including text that crashes the Mail app.

It’s possible that this may be fixed in the new update.

In any case, updating your iPhone with the latest iOS regularly is extremely important.

Many iPhone updates include new features or tricks.

But more importantly, they often fix annoying bugs that you’ve had to deal with.

And even more useful are the security fixes that often come included in iOS updates.

iOS 16.0.3 release date – when is it out?

Sadly it’s not exactly clear when we’re going to see iOS 16.0.3 roll out to the general public.

Given that it’s bug fixes, we’d expect it to drop very soon.

The original report notes that we could see it either this week or next.

So keep checking your iPhone for the new update.

And consider turning Automatic Updates on for iOS by going into Settings > Generale > Software Update.

Not all iPhones are made equal

Apple can’t support all iPhones forever – so very old iPhone models often lose access to updates.

Sometimes these old iPhones don’t have the power to support new features, or not enough people are using them to warrant providing an update.

Now the iPhone 6S, i phone 7 and 1st-generation iPhone SE will be cut off by Apple.

These handsets were compatible with 15.6.1, but won’t get iOS 16.

If you’re using older iPhones than that, you’re already cut off, so you should upgrade to a newer model immediately.

Here’s the full list of iOS 16 supported devices:

  • i phone 14
  • i phone 14 Più
  • i phone 14 Pro
  • i phone 14 Pro Max
  • i phone 13
  • i phone 13 mini
  • i phone 13 Pro
  • i phone 13 Pro Max
  • i phone 12
  • i phone 12 mini
  • i phone 12 Pro
  • i phone 12 Pro Max
  • i phone 11
  • i phone 11 Pro
  • i phone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone Xs
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X
  • i phone 8
  • i phone 8 Più
  • iPhone SE (2nd generation or later)

Not being able to get the latest iOS means you’ll lose access to the most up-to-date security fixes.

These are vital patches that close holes used by hackers to access your systems.

Chubais ha contribuito alle riforme economiche seguite al crollo dell'Unione Sovietica, ma è rimasto nel governo di Putin e ha mantenuto stretti legami con i funzionari occidentali

So using a very old iPhone that can’t be updated could put you at risk.

If you can’t update to iOS 16, consider upgrading your iPhone sooner rather than later.
