iOS 16.1.1 fixes a few unspecified bugs that iPhone users have been facing, according to Apple’s release notes. Users have been plagued with a widespread Wi-Fi bug, for example. The Wi-Fi bug caused random disconnections, with some users unable to stay connected to their Wi-Fi networks.

It’s unclear if the Wi-Fi bug is fixed as Apple didn’t provide a specific list of bug fixes, simply stating that the update “includes bug fixes and security updates.” .

iOS 16.1.1 will be followed by iOS 16.2, an update currently in beta testing and slated for launch in December. iOS 16.2 introduces the Freeform app, new Home app architecture, and other features.
