Apple fixes camera shake issues and paste permissions bug in today’s iOS 16 update • TechCrunch

Apple today released the first major update to its new iOS 16 mobile operating system ahead of schedule. Earlier this week, Apple confirmed that it would release an update next week aimed at addressing a handful of bugs that have been plaguing users, including an annoying bug related to copy-paste permissions and another that saw camera shake when record video on a number of third-party apps, including TikTok, Snapchat, and Instagram.

The company told us and other reporters at the time that a fix for these and other bugs would arrive sometime next week, but did not provide an exact release date. So, iOS 16 users were surprised when they found out that the iOS 16.0.2 update was late on Thursday afternoon.

According to the update text, this version fixes an issue with the iPhone camera, which “may shake and cause blurry photos when taking photos with some third-party apps on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max,” it reads. .

Apple hadn’t detailed what was causing the camera shake, but it appears to be just a software issue as it’s being fixed via an iOS update. However, the problem was not widespread. TechCrunch iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max owners were unable to replicate the issue themselves, for example.

Another frustrating issue was the spate of pop-ups asking users if the app had permission to read clipboard data.

This permissions feature had been designed to protect users’ privacy, as the message highlighted when applications were reading the clipboard where sensitive data could be stored, even when users were unaware it was happening. TikTok, for example, was found guilty of snooping on clipboard data, as were dozens of other iOS apps. But in iOS 16, the message was appearing repeatedly which became annoying and annoying.

An Apple executive recently admitted in an email to an affected user, reported by MacRumors, that the paste permission pop-ups were not the intended behavior and would be fixed soon. He suggested that the problem was not detected internally at Apple during testing, but the company acknowledged that many users had the same problem.

This is also among today’s fixes, update text notes.

An issue where VoiceOver was not available on restart is also being addressed with this release; another where touch input was unresponsive on some older device models (X, XR, 11); and an issue where the screen appeared completely black during device setup.

There was a hint that Apple had moved quickly to address this initial set of bugs when beta testers found these patched issues in the latest public beta (beta 2) yesterday.

The iOS 16.0.2 software update is rolling out now to all iOS users. If you still don’t see it, you can visit the Software Update section in Settings to check for the update directly.
