iOS Update Green Light program: iOS and iPadOS 16.5
Apple recently released iOS 16.5 for iPhone and iPad, adding a few new features and bug fixes. This includes new wallpaper options and a dedicated Sports tab in Apple News that provides quick access to stories, scores, standings, and more, for your favorite teams. As with any software update, we recommend waiting until your app or accessory developer has time to test it out and verify there are no compatibility issues.
Here’s a complete list of what’s new in iOS 16.5:
– A new Pride Celebration wallpaper for the Lock Screen
– Sports tab in Apple News gives easy access to stories, scores, standings, and more, for the teams and leagues you follow
– My Sports score and schedule cards in Apple News take you directly to game pages where you can find additional details about specific games
– Fixes an issue where Spotlight may become unresponsive
– Addresses an issue where Podcasts in CarPlay may not load content
– Fixes an issue where Screen Time settings may reset or not sync across all devices

Why does this website not update quickly? Foreflight says ios 15.4 is good to go.
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 …
I just read about the RSR update. Are you going to be treating it like prior updates and test before greenlighting it as in all other prior updates. Referring to IPadOS. 16.4.1 a
