iOS 16.0.2 fixes camera shake, copy and paste bug

Apple on Thursday released iOS 16.0.2 to all iPhone users. The update comes with important bug fixes not only for iPhone 14 owners but other models as well. For example, today’s update fixes an issue that could cause the iPhone 14 Pro’s camera to shake unexpectedly in some apps, while also fixing the persistent copy and paste prompt across the system.

As noted by iPhone 14 Pro users, some third-party apps like Snapchat and TikTok caused the camera to shake and vibrate. Although the official causes are still unclear, the failure likely affected the optical stabilization of the camera lenses.

Another bug that had irked iOS 16 users was related to the new copy and paste permission, which asks users if they want to allow or deny an app access to the system clipboard. However, this prompt kept popping up for users even after they had given a specific app access to the clipboard.

Both bugs have been fixed with iOS 16.0.2. According to Apple’s release notes, iOS 16.0.2 also fixes VoiceOver-related bugs and display issues affecting some iPhone models. You can read the official changelog below:

This update includes 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

Update to iOS 16.0.2

Users can now update to iOS 16.0.2 by going to the Software Update menu in the iPhone Settings app. It’s worth noting that some of these bugs have already been fixed with iOS 16.1 beta 2, which was released earlier this week to developers.
