iOS 16.1

Juli Clover:

Apple delayed iCloud Shared Photo Library in order to work out some of the bugs, but it is available in the iOS 16.1 update.


Lock Screen and Dynamic Island feature Live Activities has launched in iOS 16.1. Live Activities are a new notification type that allow you to follow along with something in real time, like an approaching Uber ride, a flight, a sports game, and more.


When tapping on the “Customize” interface on the Lock Screen, there’s now an option to choose between customizing either the Lock Screen or the Home Screen, rather than just the Lock Screen. This makes it easier to customize the look of the iPhone from one spot without having to go through multiple steps.


iOS 16.1 adds battery percentage to the battery icon in the status bar on the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini, all iPhones that did not support the feature in iOS 16.

Below, we’ve listed five features and new apps for iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 that Apple has promised to release before the end of 2022 through subsequent updates.


Update (2022-10-27): Halide:

We encourage all our users to update to iOS 16.1, which includes system-level fixes to a bug that could previously cause camera apps like Halide fail to save photos.

If you ever had images end up in our Image Rescue, this should fix that.

Update (2022-11-01): Sami Fathi:

Users report that their iPhone periodically and sometimes randomly disconnects from Wi-Fi after updating to iOS 16.1, according to reports across Reddit, Twitter (1,2,3,4), and the Apple Support community forums.

Alas, I’m seeing this, too, and sometimes it reconnects to the wrong network.

Blows my mind that we get all kinds of complicated new stuff on iOS but still can’t do simple things like: get rid of the useless blue dot next to apps that have been updated (seriously WTF is the point of this??) — still can’t rename apps on the home screens, especially apps like “Google Calendar” that display with squished letters — and still can’t position apps wherever we want (can’t have blank space above or to the sides of apps).

I Love your blog structure and layout, I'd love you get my website looking as good as yours. Amazing and bravo!! Also a customer of SpamSieve which I also use regularly.
