Apple has released a new iOS 16 software update to fix multiple bugs in iPhone 14 about iMessage and FaceTime.
On a support page, Cupertino acknowledged the issues which could entail as a result of the bugs and urged iPhone 14 users to update their devices immediately.
Apple has listed the issues iPhone 14, and iPhone 14 Pro users may face after setting up their new devices.
They may not receive iMessages, and FaceTime calls. They may see a green message bubble instead of blue when sending a message to another Apple device.
Conversations in messages may appear in two separate threads instead of one, or recipients may see an incoming message from the sender’s wrong account, such as their email address and not the selected phone number.
To solve these issues, Apple, via its support page, has asked all Apple iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro users to update their phones to the latest version of iOS 16.
How to update Apple iPhone 14 series with the latest iOS 16 software:
Plug your device into a power outlet with the help of a lightning cable, making sure the smartphone is connected to a Wi-Fi network.
Open the Settings app.
Click on General and tap on Software Update.
Click on Download and Install.
Finally, enter the passcode if asked.
Apple has also suggested ways to fix these issues should the usual update method not work for some users. Here’s what you need to do in such a case:
– Go to the Settings app and tap Cellular to ensure your iPhone line is turned on. For multiple SMS, make sure that the active mobile number is active and turned on.
– Go to Settings, tap on Message and tap on Send and Receive.
– Click the phone number which you want to use for Messages.
– After all of this is done, go back to the Settings app and tap on FaceTime.
– Select the phone number which will use with FaceTime.
