Apple’s pushed a new iOS 16.1.2 update to iPhone users who own an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or a newer model.

Like iOS 16.1.1, iOS 16.1.2 is a small point upgrade. The firmware brings important enhancements and security patches to iPhone owners around the world.

With that in mind, we want to walk you through everything there currently is to know about Apple’s new iOS 16.1.2 upgrade for iPhone.

In this walkthrough we’ll take you through iOS 16.1.2’s changes, the software’s performance, iOS 16.1.2 problems, the iOS 16 jailbreak status, and more. We’ll start with some quick thoughts on iOS 16.1.2’s performance.

iOS 16.1.2 Review

If your iPhone’s currently running iOS 16.1.1, you’ll see the smallest iOS 16.1.2 download size.

The iOS 16.1.2 download size depends on your iPhone model and the version of iOS it’s currently running. So if your iPhone is running an older version of iOS, you’ll see a bigger download because your iOS 16.1.2 update includes the changes from the iOS updates you skipped.

If you’re moving up from iOS 16.1.1, the iOS 16.1.2 installation process should take less than 10 minutes to complete. It took about seven minutes to install on an iPhone 12 Pro that was previously running iOS 16.1.1.

We’ve been using iOS 16.1.2 on an iPhone 12 Pro for a short time and here’s what we’ve learned about the software’s performance thus far:


  • Battery life is currently stable.
  • Wi-Fi connectivity is fast and reliable.
  • Bluetooth is working normally.
  • GPS and cellular data are both stable.

App Performance

  • Third-party apps including Netflix, Dark Sky, Twitter, Slack, Asana, Gmail, Chrome, and Spotify are all working fine at the moment.
  • First party apps like Safari, Podcasts, and Calendar are also running properly.


  • iOS 16.1.2 feels as fast as iOS 16.1.1 did.

If you’re running into bugs or performance issues on iOS 16.1.1 or an older version of iOS, you might want to install the iOS 16.1.2 update on your iPhone right now.

iOS 16.1.2 Problems

iOS 16.1.2 is causing problems for some iPhone users. Some of these problems are brand new, others have carried over from iOS 16.1.1 and older versions of iOS.

The current list of iOS 16 problems includes Wi-Fi issues, installation issues, UI lag, Exchange issues, problems with first and third-party apps, touchscreen issues, and Bluetooth problems.

If you run into a problem on iOS 16.1.2, have a look at our list of fixes for the most common iOS 16 problems. We’ve also released tips that could help you improve your phone’s performance and some tips that could help fix bad iOS 16 battery life.

Apple’s currently signing on iOS 16.1.1 and iOS 16.1 which means you can drop your iPhone’s software back to the previous version of iOS 16 if iOS 16.1.2 starts causing problems on your device. You can’t downgrade to anything older than iOS 16.1.

iOS 16.1.2 Update: What’s New

iOS 16.1.2 comes with two enhancements and security patches though Apple hasn’t outlined the patches just yet.

The software delivers improved compatibility with wireless carriers as well as Crash Detection optimizations on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models.

iOS 16.1.2 Jailbreak

If you still jailbreak your iPhone, make sure you avoid the iOS 16.1.2 update and iOS 16.

We don’t expect developers to release a tool that’s compatible with iOS 16 at any point in the near future. That being said, if you still jailbreak, keep an eye out for new information.

What’s Next

Apple’s confirmed a new version of iOS 16 and iOS 16.2 is currently in beta testing. The iOS 16.2 release date is expected to land in mid-December ahead of the holidays.

iOS 16.2 is a milestone upgrade which means it will bring a mix of new features, bug fixes, and security enhancements to iPhone users.

If you can’t/don’t want to wait for the official release date, you might try downloading the iOS 16.2 beta and see if it helps iron out any issues you’re seeing.
