This guide highlights all of the new features in the iOS 16.5 update.

Joe Rossignol:

Apple’s Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter does not work with iPhones and iPads that have been updated to iOS 16.5 and iPadOS 16.5, according to several users across the MacRumors Forums, Apple Support Community, and Reddit.

Update (2023-05-26): Contacts syncing is broken in macOS 13.4/iOS 16.5 (FB12205324). Editing a related name deletes all related names from the card on other devices. And then if you try to edit them there it deletes them from the original device. They also don’t export to .vcf.

Update (2023-07-27): Jonathan Wight:

Contacts apps on latest beta seems to have lost all relationship info. So I can no longer use Siri text “my wife”.


Also all contact relationship fields are just gone. poof.

I can no longer set any relationships at all in Contacts across any OS.

Update (2023-07-31): Cédric Luthi:

iOS 16.5 also broke CarPlay for many people!

Update (2024-01-09): Editing related names with iOS 17.2.1 no longer deletes them, but changes to them on my Mac no longer sync to my phone.
