Apple releases iOS 16.0.3, watchOS 9.0.2

Yesterday Apple released minor updates for their latest iPhone and Apple Watch software. Though most of the bugs addressed are specific to the new iPhone 14 models, there are some security patches in there as well so I suggest that everyone who has upgraded to iOS 16 install these updates right away.

As always, this list isn’t all-inclusive. They typically just mention the bugs that affect a large number of people.

iOS 16.0.3

  • Incoming call and app notifications may be delayed or not delivered on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • Low microphone volume can occur during CarPlay phone calls on iPhone 14 models
  • Camera may be slow to launch or switch between modes on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • Mail crashes on launch after receiving a malformed email

watchOS 9.0.2

  • Interruptions to streaming audio on Spotify
  • Snooze alarm notifications continue after the alarm is deleted for AssistiveTouch users
  • Incomplete syncing of Wallet and Fitness data for newly paired Apple Watch
  • Audio from microphone interrupted for some Apple Watch Series 8 and Ultra users

To update

iPhone: tap the Settings app > General > Software Update
