iOS 16.3 update available with new features, bug fixes, Black History Month designs.
Apple’s latest iOS 16.3 update is now available for download and brings a number of new features, bug fixes and special designs for Black History Month. The update includes support for the second-generation HomePod, a new Unity wallpaper, and new ways to use Emergency SOS. Additionally, users can now use third-party security keys for their Apple ID instead of two-factor authentication.
The Unity wallpaper celebrates Black History Month with a special-edition Apple Watch Black Unity Sport Loop, a mosaic watch face, and the new iPhone wallpaper. Emergency SOS calls now require holding the side button with the up or down volume button and then releasing in order to prevent inadvertent emergency calls. Security Keys for Apple ID allow users to strengthen the security of their account by requiring a physical security key as part of the two factor authentication sign in process on new devices.
The update also fixes an issue where some drawing strokes created with Apple Pencil or your finger may not appear on shared boards. Additionally, it resolves an issue where Siri requests in CarPlay may not be understood correctly, and it fixes an issue where the Home Lock Screen widget does not accurately display Home app status.
