iOS 16.4.1 Rumored to Launch Soon for iPhone With Bug Fixes

Apple is preparing to release iOS 16.4.1 for the iPhone, according to a source with a proven track record for upcoming software updates. It's unclear when the update will be available, but it will likely be released this week or next week.

iOS 16
Minor updates like iOS 16.4.1 are typically focused on bug fixes and security improvements. Since iOS 16.4 was released last week, some iPhone users complained about having to re-enter Wi-Fi passwords. There was also an issue with data failing to load in the Weather app, but Apple's system status page says that problem has now been resolved.

iOS 16.4.1 would be a stopgap update while iOS 16.5 remains in testing. Apple seeded the first beta of iOS 16.5 last week with a few minor changes, including the addition of a Sports tab in the Apple News app and the ability to start a screen recording with Siri. iOS 16.5 will likely be released to the public at some point in May.

Apple is expected to announce iOS 17 at WWDC 2023, which runs from June 5 through June 9.

I'm glad they're going to fix this mess but there are soooo many other things that need to be fixed.
Apple is a mess. Used to be reliable and as people said "just works".
Those days are long gone. Been gone for the last 5 years.

Hoping 16.4.1 release today
Would be good, but people with iOS 15.7 have been having “weather issues” too, so it appears to be something server side?

This could actually be a good chance to test Apple’s software hot-fix system introduced in 16.4., so we would not need to install the update the usual way.

It's June 2023. Humans have been allowed to enter the Steve Jobs theater as Apple has caught up to the rest of the world. Calming classical music plays softly in the theater from Apple's new Classical app. The lights dim as a curtain draws. Suddenly, the screen displays only a few words:
"iOS 17 - No new features. Just bug fixes. Have a nice day!"
Thunderous applause that could be heard for miles.

Doesn't make much sense. The weather app does not work on my old iPhone 7 Plus (iOS 15x) or Mac either
