The iOS 16.0.2 update can be downloaded on eligible iPhones over the air by going to Settings > General > Software Update.

According to Apple’s release notes, iOS 16.0.2 addresses bugs, a number of bugs that have affected the ‌iPhone 14‌ models and other iPhones running ‌iOS 16‌. It fixes an issue that could cause the camera to vibrate and shake in third-party camera apps, it fixes a bug that led to repeated copy and paste popups, and it fixes an issue that causes the screen to appear black during setup .

It also fixes an issue that caused some iPhone X, XR, and ‌iPhone‌ 11 models with replacement screens to become unresponsive after updating to ‌iOS 16‌. Apple’s release notes for the update are below:

– This update provides bug fixes and important security updates for your iPhone, including the following:
– The camera may vibrate and cause blurry images when shooting with some third-party apps on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
– The display may appear completely black during device setup
– Copy and paste between apps may cause a permission prompt to appear more than expected
– VoiceOver may not be available after reboot
– Fixes an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone X, iPhone XR and iPhone 11 screens after servicing

All these bugs were found shortly after the new iPhones were launched. The camera shake issue is one of the more serious bugs as it causes the rear camera to shake uncontrollably when shooting video in apps like Snapchat, TikTok and Instagram. The Stock Camera app is not affected and until now there was no fix or workaround.

As for the copy and paste bug, Apple confirmed it was not normal behavior last week. Apps should not ask for permission to access the clipboard with each pasting attempt, and the issue has already been addressed in iOS 16.1 beta.

Apple is already working on iOS 16.1, which will be released alongside iPadOS 16.1 sometime in October.
