Released today, Apple’s iOS 16.0.2 is a bug-fixing update for iOS 16 that addresses a wide range of issues such as; shaky camera and copy-paste iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Prox Max users are experiencing.
A couple of nagging problems were rapidly discovered by consumers after Apple introduced its newest iPhone series earlier this month. The good news is that patches to solve the flaws were promptly developed and are now available as part of the iOS 16.0.2 update, released by the tech giant. Third-party apps like Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat, which make advantage of the iPhone 14 Pro’s camera, were not fully compatible before the upgrade.

Users have reported that when certain apps are launched and the rear camera is used, the camera view on screen shakes and the phone makes grinding and rattling noises. According to Apple's patch notes, the update addresses a problem where the "[c]amera may vibrate and create fuzzy photographs when shooting with certain 3rd party applications on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max." The business didn't say why, although it's conceivable the rattling sounds were due to incompatibilities between the apps and the optical image stabilisation technology.
The update also addresses a frustrating issue where users would repeatedly be asked for permission to copy & paste material between applications, which has now been fixed. The problem was acknowledged by Apple's senior manager, Ron Huang, who called it "definitely not expected behaviour" and claimed the company was working to fix it. There are more flaws that will be fixed in iOS 16.0.2, such as the one that causes the screen to go black during setup, and the one that makes the display unresponsive to touch input on certain iPhone X, iPhone XR, and iPhone 11 devices after they have been repaired.
