  • Apple has released iOS 16.3.1 to the public today.
  • The update includes much-needed fixes for Crash Detection, iCloud, Find My, and more.
  • However, the update seems to break the Google Photos app.



Apple has released iOS 16.3.1, a minor update to its iOS 16 operating system that was first launched in September. The update includes multiple bug fixes, such as addressing issues with iCloud and Siri requests for Find My, and adding more optimizations for Crash Detection. The crash detection optimizations may help solve the problem of false positives that have impacted emergency services at ski resorts and amusement parks. Image credit: 9to5mac The update is available for iPhones and iPads capable of running iOS 16, which includes the iPhone 8 and newer, and can be downloaded by going to Settings > General > Software Update. Along with iOS 16.3.1, Apple is also releasing updates for HomePod, iPadOS, tvOS, watchOS, and macOS.

Here are Apple's full release notes for iOS 16.3.1:

  • iCloud settings may be unresponsive or incorrectly display if apps are using iCloud
  • Siri requests for Find My may not work
  • Crash Detection optimizations on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models

Though the update includes vital security fixes, users of the Google Photos app are advised to hold off on updating to iOS 16.3.1 as it may break compatibility with the app and cause it to crash when opened.
