Apple today released iOS 16.4.1, a minor update to the iOS 16 operating system. The new version comes close to two weeks after the public release of iOS 16.4.
iOS 16.4.1 can be downloaded on compatible iPhones over the air by going to “Settings” -> “General” -> “Software Update.”
Apple’s release notes say the iOS 16.4.1 update includes a fix for an issue that could cause Siri not to respond in some cases, and it adds skin tones variations for the pushing hands emoji.
This update provides important bug fixes and security updates for your iPhone including:
– Pushing hands emoji does not show skin tone variations
– Siri does not respond in some cases
This is likely one of the last updates we’ll see to both iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 (although Apple is currently testing iOS 16.5), as Apple is expected to unveil iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June.
