Milioni di possessori di iPhone devono controllare le impostazioni oggi: è pericoloso non farlo

APPLE has pushed out a brand new update for millions of iPhones – so it’s time to install it.

The update features a few bug fixes, but also includes important security updates.

That means it’s essential that you update your i phone to iOS 16.1.2 appena possibile.

If you’ve got an i phone 14 o i phone 14 Pro, it has the added perk of improving Crash Detection – the new iOS feature that calls emergency services if it thinks you’ve been in a car accident.

It’s possible that this update reduces the number of false positives, after reports emerged of rollercoasters triggering the emergency response.

But getting the latest security fixes for all iOS 16-friendly models is extremely important.

Apple added: “Keeping your software up to date is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your Apple product’s security.

The update is available for free right now, and it’s extremely important that you install it as soon as possible.

No support

The bad news is that not all users can get iOS 16.1.2.

If you can upgrade to iOS 16 then you’re fine, but anyone with a very old iPhone model will miss out.

Here’s a list of all the iOS 16 (and iOS 16.1.1) 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.

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.

Before you update

Before any major iPhone update, you should make sure to back up your phone.

That’s because things can easily go wrong during an update, and you’ll want to avoid losing your precious data – like photos or videos.

To do this, simply head into the iCloud settings on your iPhone and turn on the ‘iCloud Backup’ caratteristica.

In alternativa, plug your phone into iTunes and choose the ‘Backup Nowoption.

How to update iPhone wirelessly

The easiest way to update your iPhone is wirelessly – just follow these simple steps:

  • Plug your iPhone into a power socket, and connect to a Wi-Fi network
  • Tap Settings > Generale > Software Update
  • Tap ‘Download and Install
  • Le chat dell'assistenza WhatsApp sono sempre contrassegnate da un segno di spunta verde verificato ‘ Download and Installto update immediately, or plug you phone in overnight to update automatically while you’re asleep.
  • You may have to enter your passcode

If you don’t have enough space for the update on your phone, Apple may ask you if it can temporarily remove some apps from your phone.

But don’t worry: Apple will reinstall any deleted apps, including any data you had stored on those apps.
