iOS 16.5.1 – The Basics

Let us start with the basics first. The iOS 16.5.1 and iPadOS 16.5.1 are available for iPhone 8 and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air (3rd gen and more), iPad and iPad Mini (5th generation and later). Now when it comes to the overall change and the need to download it – Apple has claimed that it addresses serious security issues that are causing a lot of iPhone cyber attacks in the last few months and years. The update addresses a vulnerability that could allow applications to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges.

To explain it simply, the core of all iOS coding is kernel and by allowing arbitrary coding, third party applications and access can draw your iPhone to a potential cyber-fraud, scam, or open it to the possibility of getting hacked by malware and other online-related viruses.

Touch Not Working

The first issue is with the touch screen and the touch acting wildly. This may hamper the overall working experience on your phone and also narrow your possibilities of finding any online help due to the erratic touch.

No Compatibility With Some Applications

The second issue relates to the iOS 16.5.1 compatibility with some of the applications such as Instagram, Facebook, or other data-consuming applications. The update is forcing the phone to lag or hang when users try to open the apps and in some cases the phone restarts automatically after failing to launch the app.

FaceID Issue

There might be another issue, which may pop up after the iOS update that is related to FaceID. In some cases the FaceID is not working and then the users have to restart and rely on entering the password.
