Will upgrade immediately
I ran into the issue with VoiceOver inoperative after reboot, only once, and have never been able to reproduce it. Glad to hear it's fixed.
While I ran into the voiceover crashing after reboot only once, but i'm glad its fixed.
updating it rite now.
Hey peeps. I am currently updating my phone by my MacBook Air and any other changes?
Also had that issue once...
But that was because I hadn't restarted since then. I updated, restarted twice just to make sure everything was working, and all is good here.
They might've fixed the bug…
They might've fixed the bug where it asks for your apple ID, password when you restart, because I was able to unlock and use my phone perfectly after the update.
IOS 16.02 Update
Disappointed that Apple did not fix the Invert Colors/App Switcher bug in this update. I have also lost my keyboard clicks. Have Sound turned on in Keyboard feedback but no clicks. Not really a fan of Haptic keyboard feedback.
Apple ID Password
Hi, running iOS 16.0.2 on iPhone 13. I am still being asked to enter Apple ID password when starting the phone but this is intermittent.
Does apple know about it?
Has anyone issued a complaint about this Apple ID Password bug?
Honestly? I'm just glad they…
Honestly? I'm just glad they fixed VO not talking after the restart, because I know this was intermittent as well, I was getting scared to reboot my phone. I haven't asked for sighted help with my passcode in a very long time, and I'm glad I won't have to do that now.
Is the Braille display issue with select, copy and paste resolve
I have yet to upgrade to the latest iOS version due to seeing the difficulties with Braille displays and their copy paste and selection. I use a display often and wonder if this latest release of iOS 16 fixes this issue? It would seem from the description it might. Thanks.
Doesn't look like it. I tried it in this very text field. Still not working. New line bug hasn't been fixed either. :(
Track position slider bug
I can now swipe up and down on the track position slider on my phone's lock screen and it will actually move.
While it is technically possible for me to adjust the volume and speech rate, the rate doesn’t actually change after adjusting it!!!!
No, I don't see this…
No, I don't see this behavior. Using speech rate rotor option and my speech by default is at 60%.
my friend (she is blind) has Iphone.
after the rebooting of iOS 16.0.2. the Voice Over have become so slow, she can not use it like before.
what she need to do to fix it?
Go to accessibility settings, then Voiceover, then speech.
She can fix it from there.
