Apple’s iOS 16.2 update is now expected to arrive in mid-December, according to a new report. That will mean that it likely arrive around three months after the main iOS 16 update was made available to the public in September.
The news comes after Bloomerg’s Mark Gurman wrote of the mid-December window in this weekend’s Power On newsletter.
The Bloomberg writer says that “the iOS 16.2 and iPadOS 16.2 updates, which began beta testing this past week, should be released around mid-December.”
Those betas are now available to developers as well as those who are on the public beta program and add a number of new features.
The first addition is Live Activities for sports games via the built-in TV app on iPhones. Those Live Activities will be available on the Lock Screen or via the Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 Pro models.
