by February 16, 2023 0 comments

Apple has released iOS 16.3.1, the most recent version of its mobile operating system, which contains a number of improvements like improved crash detection and a patch for iCloud problems.

This is a small update that follows Apple’s stable release of iOS 16.3 and iPadOS 16.3 for iPhones and iPads. Support for Security Keys for Apple ID was one of the many features provided in these releases.

The iOS 16.3.1 update has additional optimizations to deal with the false positives caused by the iPhone 14’s Crash Detection feature, which have been overburdening 911 call centers.

Other bugs have been fixed in the update, such as Siri requests for the Find My app that were not working and an improved display of iCloud settings when apps are using iCloud.

Update and bug fixes for iOS 16.3.1:

If apps are using iCloud, iCloud settings may not work or display incorrectly. Siri requests for Find My may not work and Crash Detection optimizations on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models iOS 16.3.1 breaks Google Photos App

According to multiple social media reports and a report by The Verge, iPhone and iPad owners who use Google Photos are having problems with the newly released iOS 16.3.1 update. For users who have upgraded to the most recent version of the software, the Google Photos app crashes immediately upon opening.

It is currently unclear when the problem will be fixed and whether the fix will require a server-side fix or an update to the Google Photos app.

Unfortunately, the update also includes a crucial security fix for a known vulnerability that is actively being exploited. As a result, users of Google Photos will have to choose between the app and device security until the issue is fixed.
