The next iOS 16 update will fix two annoying iPhone 14 issues

Apple has acknowledged two frustrating iOS 16 issues and is expected to roll out fixes for both in an imminent software update. 

Back in December, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users reported (opens in new tab) seeing green and yellow horizontal lines flashing across their screens when booting up their devices. Now, according to MacRumors (opens in new tab), Apple has issued an internal memo clarifying that it is “aware” of the problem, and a patch is expected to arrive with iOS 16.3 in the coming weeks.

The other problem relates to the Home app. The release of iOS 16.2 brought about the option to upgrade Apple’s smart home manager to a “more reliable and efficient” architecture, but that option was removed without explanation shortly after appearing.
