Apple Rolls Out iOS 16.0.3 With Notification Fixes Improved Camera Speed And More

After the release of the iOS 16 operating system last month, the firm has been attempting to fix some of the most significant flaws since then. Apple today released iOS 16.0.3, a bug fix update. The iOS 16.0.3 release comes after iOS 16.0.2, which fixed a number of iPhone 14 launch-day glitches

Some users reported the CarPlay bug caused low volume levels on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max hands-free calls. The caller seemed quiet or distant, making them hard to hear. On the other hand, some users said they had to wait up to four or five seconds after opening the Camera app. The official change log offered by Apple is shown below.

iOS 16.0.3: Changelog

This update provides bug fixes and important security updates for your iPhone including the following:

  • Incoming call and app notifications may be delayed or not delivered on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • Low microphone volume can occur during CarPlay phone calls on iPhone 14 models
  • Camera may be slow to launch or switch between modes on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • Mail crashes on launch after receiving a malformed email

It’s completely expected that this update, which addresses flaws mostly related to the iPhone 14 series, will address those issues, as the iOS 16.0.3 change log shows. We’ve seen some fairly serious software problems in the different iPhone 14 Pro variants since the phones just recently launched and went on sale globally.

According to reports, some iPhone users who upgraded to iOS 16 see flickering in dark spots whenever the iPhone is at low brightness. It is indeed unclear if this update addresses the issue.


The iOS 16.0.3 update is now rolling out, and this update is recommended for all iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro devices. The update can be downloaded over-the-air on compatible iPhones, which can do so by going to Settings > General > Software Update.
