Apple has announced that it is releasing a new iOS update next week. The Cupertino-based tech giant released the iOS 16.2 last month. The upcoming update version is iOS 16.3. It will bring fixes and improvements as well as exclusive content in honour of Black History Month.
The upcoming iOS 16.3 update will resolve the issue of horizontal lines on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max’s display upon waking up the device. The next version will also enable the use of physical security keys to protect Apple ID meaning users will be able to configure a physical hardware device as a second factor for two-factor authentication for their accounts. Apple will also fix issues with the lock screen where the widget did not accurately displayed the status of the Home app. It will also add support for the newly launched second-generation HomePod along with a tutorial that instructs users how to use Handoff features that are compatible with iPhone and HomePod.
The iOS 16.3 will also bring Black Unity wallpaper to celebrate Black History Month. The update is also expected to fix a Freeform flaw where some drawing strokes made with an Apple Pencil or finger may not show up in shared boards.
iPhone users will be able to install the iOS 16.3 as soon as it is released over the air. This can be done by going to Settings > selecting General > selecting Software Update from the submenu. Alongside the iOS 16.3, Apple is also tipped to announce iPadOS 16.3, watchOS 9.3, tvOS 16.3 and macOS 13.2
Apple is also introducing Black Unity Sport Loop for the Watch Series in 41mm and 45mm sizes. It is available for order in US for $49
