Apple has released iOS 16.1.2 for iPhone. The software update includes security updates and bug fixes, and is said to improve compatibility with wireless carriers. Additionally, the iOS 16.1.2 is said to improve crash detection on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models, a feature which aims to detect if the user has been in a car crash and then offer assistance by contacting emergency services on your behalf.

The iOS 16.1.2 update may address an issue some users were reporting where their cellular reception and connectivity diminished after installing iOS 16 onto their iPhone, either leading to the perception of reduced cellular signal quality, or an increase in dropped calls.

There are currently no corresponding updates to iPadOS or macOS, making iOS 16.1.2 a standalone iPhone software update.

How to Download & Update to iOS 16.1.2

Always backup the iPhone to iCloud or a computer via Finder/iTunes before going through any software update on your devices.

  1. Open the “Settings” app on iPhone
  2. Choose “General”
  3. Go to “Software Update”
  4. Choose to “Download and Install” 16.1.2

The iPhone update is rather small in size, weighing under 300mb, and should install quickly for most users. Installing the iOS 16.1.2 software update does require the iPhone to restart.

Optionally, users can choose to update their iOS system software through a computer by using a Finder on Mac, or iTunes on PC. Advanced users can also opt to use IPSW firmware files, which are available to download from Apple.
