Apple is reportedly prepping to release an iOS 16.1.1 update for the iPhone to address multiple issues and bugs users have discovered since the release of iOS 16.1, including a persistent WiFi bug.
MacRumors reports that in the past week it has noticed devices running iOS 16.1.1 in our website analytics, which indicates that the update is being internally tested by Apple and could see a release in the near future.
There is no indication of what exactly the update will include. However, it’s possible it could fix a widespread and persistent Wi-Fi bug that has impacted users. The bug causes a user’s iPhone to randomly disconnect from Wi-Fi when left on standby, such as overnight or in other situations.
The update could also fix issues causing various complaints by users since the launch of iOS 16 in September, including battery drain, sluggish Spotlight search, and laggy animations on some iPhone 14 models.
iOS 16.1.1 could also include Emergency SOS via Satellite for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models.
