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

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.

No support

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

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.

  • TapDownload 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.
