Apple Addresses iPhone 14 Issue With Software Update: Reports

Apple is reportedly releasing a new software update that will fix an issue that causes flickering horizontal lines on the displays of some iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models.

According to Forbes, iOS 16.3 release candidate is now available, and tests show that it fixes the issue and adds important new functionality.

The outlet previously cited an internal memo confirming that the tech giant was working on the issue and that “a software update will be coming soon that will resolve the issue.”

MacRumors reported on January 13 that Apple’s memo said that customers may “report that when they turn on or unlock their phone, they briefly see horizontal lines flashing across the screen.”
