iPhone 14 Models Will Have Day-One iOS 16 Update Available With Bug Fixes

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models arriving to customers starting this Friday will have a day-one software update available with bug fixes, according to Apple.

"This update provides bug fixes for your iPhone and addresses an issue that may cause some photos to appear soft when zooming in landscape orientation on iPhone 14 Pro Max," says Apple's release notes for the update, shared by @AppleSWUpdates.

The update will be available for all iPhone 14 models launching this Friday and simply represents the final version of iOS 16 with build number 20A362 that was released earlier this week for other iPhone models. Apple's initial batch of iPhone 14 models ship with an earlier build of iOS 16, which is why an update will be available immediately.

It appears that Apple also pushed out this update for the iPhone 14 Plus, but that device does not launch until October 7. It's possible that a newer iOS 16 update will be available by time the iPhone 14 Plus is released.

Apple released iOS 16 to the general public on Monday following several months of beta testing. Key new features include a highly customizable Lock Screen, the ability to temporarily edit or unsend iMessages, improvements to Focus modes, and more. The free software update is compatible with the iPhone 8 and newer.

Update: As noted by 9to5Mac, Apple has released an iOS 16.0.1 update for the iPhone 14 models that fixes an issue with activation and migration during setup, addresses a problem that could cause photos to appear soft when zooming in in landscape orientation on iPhone 14 Pro Max, and fixes a bug that could cause enterprise single sign-on apps to fail to authenticate.

I always wondered how specifically they get so many phones in the packaging updated with an iOS release that comes out at nearly the same time. It is a logistical wonder.

The first shipments were likely manufactured up to a month+ ago so it's perfectly understandable for them to have a pre-GA release of iOS. That said, wouldn't it be cool if Apple had a feature that automatically woke up the phones in their boxes just before shipping out from China and automatically updated the firmware using the factory's or warehouse's WiFi?

Day-one updates hardly says anything about the the quality. iOS 16 betas had been very stable for me even on an older device and this seems to just be an issue with the Camera. Most desperate-crunch-time AAA games are almost unplayably bad despite the day one update, so you can imagine the state of the original release version.
