The iOS 16.5 OS update has been made available to iPhone users by Apple. This upgrade has been under beta testing for the past month. After much anticipation, the update has now been made available to all users. The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will take place in June, the following month. Before WWDC, this is anticipated to be the final significant release for iOS 16. Users of iPhones will now get access to additional functionalities. Additionally, the business has fixed a few problems.

What are the new updates?

The new system update fixes some of the prior known bugs and is available for iPhone 8 and later. To honour the LGBTQ+ community and culture, iOS 16.5 also contains a new Pride Celebration wallpaper for the Lock Screen. Apple is enhancing Apple News with scorecards on the Sports tab in addition to the background.

According to the business, "My sports score and fixture cards in Apple News take you directly to match pages where you can find additional details about specific matches." Since Apple News is not available in India, this upgrade is not very significant for iPhone users there. As some iPhone users were unable to use Spotlight, iOS 16.5 also addresses these concerns. With this version, further problems with Apple Car Play and the Screen Time feature have also been resolved. Apple has started rolling out the update, and users can check the availability by going to iPhone's Settings > General > Software update. The same process to check updates works on iPads and Macs.
