iOS Update Green Light program: iOS 16.1.2 and iPadOS 16.1.1

1 min read

Apple again has split the version numbers for iOS (iPhone) and iPadOS (iPad) after recently releasing iOS 16.1.2 for iPhone only. According to Apple, this update “improves compatibility with wireless carriers and includes Crash Detection optimizations on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models.” The latest version of iPadOS remains iPadOS 16.1.1, which has already been tested and OK’d by all the major aviation app and accessory developers.

As with any iOS release, we recommend holding off on updating your app or accessory until the developers have had time to fully test compatibility with the new version.

    Great article explaining the updates; however, unless I missed something … somewhere, I do not see a purpose in this article. Here is what I mean:
    It gives mention of a “program” geared to help ensure our aviation apps are at maximum performance. Yet, how can a person check their individual iPads if there isn’t a means in doing so?
    In other words, how is this “program” supposed to work if one cannot download anything?
    Thank you and stay healthy.

    Anyone else having an issue with ForeFlight crashing, whenever cellular data or WiFi is turned on? I just updated FF and the latest iOS last night and now FF keeps crashing. It’s unusable at this point for me.

    I don’t know your feelings, but while I look at iOS 16.1 my feelings are kind of ok’ish, but testing iPadOS 16.1 the pictures turns black – that one hit the wrong exit and drives towards Vista for iPads …
