iOS 16.1 is already in the beta test phase, but Apple is now pushing a smaller interim update. As the company previously announced, the iOS 16.0.2 update fixes an issue with the camera in the iPhone 14 Pro.
iOS 16 has only been on the market for a short time. But Apple is already providing the second follow-up update. TECHBOOK reveals what innovations it brings.
Error makes camera unusable in some apps
iPhone 14 Pro users complain that the camera on social media apps suddenly starts rattling. The vibrating movement is so strong that recordings in apps like Instagram and Snapchat are completely shaky.
The sound has also been compared to the buzzing of bees. This is due to an error in the SensorShift stabilization, which moves the entire camera sensor to avoid blurred images.
iOS 16.0.2 fixes a number of bugs
According to Apple, the update to iOS 16.0.2 contains bug fixes as well as important security patches for the iPhone. The following bugs should have been fixed:
- The camera in the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max vibrates and captures blurry images in third-party apps
- The display is completely black during the setup process
- When copying and pasting between apps, a permission message appears more often than expected
- The VoiceOver reading function no longer works after a restart
- iPhone X, iPhone XR, and iPhone 11 with a replacement display no longer recognize touch inputs
The iOS 16.0.2 update also includes the bug fixes that Apple shipped with iOS 16.0.1, including:
- iMessage and FaceTime cannot be activated
- On iPhone 14 Pro Max, photos may appear blurry when zoomed in landscape mode
- Authentication fails for enterprise apps using single sign-on

Should I install iOS 16.0.2 right away?
Anyone who has already installed iOS 16 and is not affected by the errors mentioned above does not necessarily have to install the update. TECHBOOK recommends it above all to owners of an iPhone 14 Pro or 14 Pro Max. Even those who have an iPhone X, XR or 11 with a replacement display – even if the repair was carried out by Apple – should install iOS 16.0.2 as a preventative measure. Everyone else can wait straight away for iOS 16.1, which will likely come out in October alongside iPadOS 16. There are all the improvements of iOS 16.0.2, as well as a number of new features – including finally a revised battery indicator.
The update is compatible with all devices that also support iOS 16. This means that at least an iPhone 8 or iPhone X is required.
