Apple iOS 16.3 update to roll out next week with new features – Business Upturn

Apple plans to roll out the latest iOS 16.3 update to iPhone owners next week. The next version will provide a significant security improvement for all users around the world. End-to-end encryption is included for many additional iCloud data categories, including Photos, Notes, Voice Memos, message backups, device backups, and more.

Other updates and features in the current iOS 16.3 update include security keys for Apple IDs, advanced data protection, support for the new 2nd-generation HomePod, a new Unity background, and more.

According to 9to5mac, the Apple ID Security Keys feature allows you to use a physical hardware security key as a second level of authentication for your Apple ID. Also, even after the countdown, the iPhone will now wait until you release the buttons before calling emergency services.

Apple iOS 16.3 Update: Advanced Data Protection in iCloud

In the United States, iCloud’s advanced data protection feature was introduced with iOS 16.2 late last year. Apple is now extending this functionality beyond the United States. The security feature will be available worldwide starting with iOS 16.3.

According to the source, all users will be able to enable iCloud Advanced Data Protection, an end-to-end encryption capability for virtually all data stored in iCloud, including messages, photos, and device backups. Without Advanced Data Protection enabled, iCloud already offers end-to-end encryption for 14 types of data. Advanced Data Security now extends this protection to the vast majority of iCloud categories, with notable exclusions of the Mail, Contacts, and Calendar apps.

How to enable iCloud Advanced Data Protection

To enable iCloud Advanced Data Protection, go to Settings -> [your name] -> iCloud -> Advanced Data Protection and follow the instructions on the screen.

Apple is also addressing the large screen issue on the iPhone 14 Pro Max with iOS 16.3. In an internal message last week, the company acknowledged the problem and said a patch was on the way. According to MacRumors, the bug patch shows that it is a software problem rather than a hardware failure.
