Apple Now Testing iOS 16.4.1 for iPhone With Bug Fixes Expected

Following a rumor that iOS 16.4.1 is in the works, we can now independently confirm that Apple is testing the software update internally. It's unclear when the update will be released, but it will likely be available within the next week or two.

iOS 16
Like other minor updates, iOS 16.4.1 will likely be focused on bug fixes and/or security patches. Since iOS 16.4 was released last week, some iPhone users have complained about being forced to re-enter Wi-Fi passwords occasionally, and various user interface glitches. Some users continue to complain about Weather app data failing to display too, despite Apple's system status page indicating that issue is now resolved.

iOS 16.4.1 will be a stopgap until iOS 16.5 is released around May. Apple seeded the first beta of iOS 16.5 last week with a few minor changes, including a Sports tab in the Apple News app and the ability to start a screen recording with Siri.

Apple is expected to announce iOS 17 during the WWDC 2023 keynote on June 5, so the iOS 16 software cycle is nearing its completion.

Apple needs to fix bugs through ios 18. We don’t need new features, we just need the existing features to work well. Just saying.

As a consumer I want both bug fixes plus exciting and innovative features. For a company like Apple, and for the prices that they charge, there is no excuse for failing to provide both with every hardware and software update. Many people would disagree with this and defend Apple, but regardless of what they say I simply refuse to accept any excuse. They are part of the reason why Apple has been getting away with this. Complacent consumers lower the bar for competition. Demanding consumers make all companies more consistent and improve faster.

Weather app & widget works like half the time...

Like how do they break stuff that has worked fine for eternity? How do they not test it and catch it?

Apple software used to be so solid; very few glitches.

Now, it is constant glitches and inconsistencies.

There‘s no point in submitting bug reports - even as a developer - because they are never properly recognized much less addressed and fixed.

I had high hopes for iOS 16 through the beta process, but the real-world releases have been shockingly bad.

If the fixes are minor, it could be out as early as this coming Friday (April 7, 2023).
Fixes are always minor because Apple QC's process is managed by chimpanzee's!
